Towards Ghana’s Energy Independence: Kina advises on social investment strategy for 400MW Bridge Power and LPG project in Ghana.

02|05|2017

On 27th April 2017, the President of the Republic of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo formally launched the start of the construction of the 400 MW Bridge Power project, moving Ghana a big step closer to reliable, affordable, power supply, and towards energy independence.

The Project will directly create hundreds of jobs in Ghana during both the construction and operation phases.  Crucially, it will bring much needed electricity to Ghana that will have an immediate positive impact on the running of schools, factories, offices, other local businesses, hospitals, and households.

Kina Advisory Limited advises the developers of the Project, the Early Power Limited (EPL) on social impact management, a social investment strategy, stakeholder engagement and communications. EPL is a consortium made up of the US companies Endeavor Energy and GE, and the wholly Ghanaian owned, Sage.  We have developed a social investment strategy based on findings of the Bridge Power Environmental & Social Impact Assessment (ESIA) and further consultation with stakeholders and are now working with EPL to plan and implement a major social investment programme that will focus on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) education and skills development for youth.  The programme will:

  • implement measures set out in the Environmental & Social Action Plan to mitigate social impacts or leverage social benefits identified through the ESIA process;
  • contribute to achieving the value drivers of EPL’s business;
  • build relationships with stakeholders; and
  • address one or more of Ghana’s broader socio-economic development challenges.

Working with Manhean Secondary Technical School in Tema New Town, EPL will establish a centre where students can access computers, technological tools and an e-library, outside their classes. The centre will include workspaces to conduct experiments and perform engineering projects.  As the programme develops, EPL will work with selected senior high schools across the Tema Metropolitan Area to develop and support tech hubs, with subsequent phases to include scholarship programs, internships, work shadowing and employment opportunities.
