SMEC continues to manage key power sector development program in Ghana
We are proud to continue our partnership with the Millennium Development Authority (MiDA
We are proud to continue our partnership with the Millennium Development Authority (MiDA) who have extended SMEC’s appointment as Program Management Consultant on the Ghana Power Compact, an extensive power sector development program that aims to reduce poverty through sustainable economic growth in Ghana. SMEC’s role involves project management, procurement planning and support, supervision of works and project oversight for additional construction projects.
Unreliable electricity supply and insufficient access to electricity have been identified as key challenges to the growth of Ghana’s national economy.These are largely due to challenges in the sector governance and regulatory framework, insufficient power generation to meet growing demand, transmission capacity constraints, and most importantly a constrained and inefficient distribution system. The Ghana Power Compact seeks to address these challenges by creating an enabling environment for private investment in additional generation, enhancing the governance and regulatory environment of the Power Sector; and strengthening the corporate governance, operational efficiency and financial viability of the power distribution utilities.
