The Chief Executive of Symbion Power, Paul Hinks has announced that the company will kick start its power production in the country using natural gas and jet fuel.
Mr. Hinks arrived in the country over the weekend to conclude a power purchase agreement with government this week to kick start the construction of 100 megawatts of power in July this year. The company has already signed a letter of intent to increase the capacity to 430 megawatts estimated to cost 700 million dollars once the country's gas infrastructure is completed.
Paul Hinks told Joy Business the project which will run during peak hours will significantly address the current energy crisis facing Ghana. "For a start we will use natural gas and jet fuel to operate the turbines until the gas infrastructure in Ghana is completed, so for now the 100 megawatts will be available only during peak hours in the morning and in the evening because jet fuel is expensive," he added.
Last year, the Energy and Petroleum Minister Emmanuel Armah Kofi Buah and Paul Hinks signed the letter of intent in the US to formalize the deal.
Mr. Hinks said as part of the deal, Symbion will also offer training for Ghanaians abroad who will in turn train local expertise who will be employed. "Wherever we operate, we have always made it a point to employ over 90 percent of our staff locally with few expatriates joining and we intend to do same in Ghana," he assured.
Chief Executive Office of the Ghana Investment Promotion Center Mawuena Trebah told Joy Business the center exist to identify and bring to the country strategic investors to aid economic growth and create jobs for the country. She is optimistic the tariff negotiation between Symbion, the Energy Ministry and Electricity Company of Ghana will be concluded this week to the mutual benefit of all the parties.

Energy Minister Emmanuel Kofi Buah made the call to Paul Hinks, Chief Executive Officer of Symbion Power when the two held a meeting at the instance of the Minister last week.
Symbion CEO Paul Hinks, later in an interview with the media, said "We have responded very positively to this request from Ghana and we will work hand in hand with the government and ECG who want us to deliver the first megawatts within a year of signing a PPA.
Hinks said: "When a country's economy reaches the stage that Ghana has, it needs to reduce its reliance on Development Finance Institutions such as the World Bank who provide large loans that must be paid back.

Paul Hinks, the chief executive of Symbion Power, one of the leading private sector beneficiaries of Power Africa support, laid out the problem in detail when he spoke about his company's activities in Africa before congress in March 2014. He said that African governments had yet to cut much red tape. He did, however, emphasise that Nigeria, which was undergoing a privatisation of its energy sector with Power Africa's support, was the exception to an otherwise bleak investment environment.
In particular, the age-old problem of payment remains. "If utilities do not pay producers promptly, the producers will, in turn, default on their payments to the very financial institutions such as OPIC, the Export-Import Bank and the US Trade and Development Agency, who help fund the investment," Hinks told congress.
