President Akufo-Addo will on Saturday, November 21 fee the 45KW Tsatsadu Micro Hydro Station at Alavanyo-Abehenease within the Hohoe Municipal Meeting, Volta Area.
In a press release signed by the Company Affairs Supervisor of the Bui Energy Authority, Akua Sakyi, the Micro-Hydro Energy Producing Station would be the first within the nation to be constructed by the Bui Energy Authority beneath the Ministry of Vitality’s renewable power initiative.
The 45kW Tsatsadu Micro Hydro Producing Station, located on the Tsatsadu Waterfalls, is a run-of-river scheme, which didn’t require the formation of a reservoir to function.
It consists of a concrete diversion weir, an consumption construction, diversion channel, a forebay, metal penstock, a powerhouse and a transmission line which ties the electrical energy generated into the native distribution grid.
The weir diverts a part of the river circulate by means of an consumption channel into the diversion channel.
The diverted water goes by means of a 300mm diameter penstock to the bottom of the hill the place the powerhouse, which homes the generators and the generator, is positioned.
The water drives the generators and flows out by means of the tailrace channel and again into the downstream of the waterfall.
The Mission, initially designed as a 30kW stand-alone system, was redesigned and upgraded to a 45kW grid connection system based mostly on the result of extra research.
The 45kW Tsatsadu Micro Hydro Producing Station was constructed by native younger Engineers of the Bui Energy Authority.
The implementation of the 45kW Tsatsadu Producing Station was co-funded by the Danish and Chinese language governments by means of the Renewable Vitality Know-how Switch (UNDP-RETT) Mission.
The Bui Energy Authority collaborated with the United Nations Industrial Improvement Group (UNIDO), the Worldwide Community on Small Hydro Energy of China (IN-SHP) and Ghanaian Vitality Sector Businesses to execute the venture.
The Bui Energy Authority was grateful for the help of the Paramount Chief and folks of Alavanyo in addition to the Lobby de Charité Catholic Retreat Centre in releasing the portion of their land required for the venture.
