As Chief Executive of Ghana's Volta River Authority ("VRA"), Ghana's state electric utility, Kweku A. Awotwi, an APSM principal, managed 1,200 MW of hydro assets and 1,000 MW of thermal assets from June 2009 to December 2013. During that period, he improved thermal plant availabilities from below 40% to above 80%, the first time in VRA's history. Working with VRA's partner, Abu Dhabi National Energy Company PJSC ("TAQA"), he completed the financing the US$330 million combined-cycle expansion of the 220 MW simple cycle thermal-fired power plant, the largest such financing in 2013. He also completed Ghana's first solar plant, at 2.5 MW in 2013.

In his private capacity, Mr. Awotwi is an original shareholder, co-founder and developer of the 340 MW combined cycle thermal-fired Cenpower project, the first project-financed independent power project in Ghana, that reached financial close in 2014, and commenced construction in January 2015.
Equally important, Mr. Awotwi brings a comprehensive understanding of, as well as hands-on experience, procuring, acquiring as well as developing the feedstock required to fuel generation plants. He has acquired oil and gas licenses in West and East Africa; developed Liquefied Natural Gas ("LNG") solutions for generation plants in Ghana and West Africa; and explored the acquisition of coal assets across the continent.
