The new 33kV switching station replaces the temporary 11kV mobile transformer, which had served the district for the past four years, following the burning of the previous transformer at the primary substation.
The Volta Regional General Manager of the ECG, Joseph Forson, said switching station would ensure reliable supply of electricity to customers in the district, and minimize power outagee.
“This switching station is part of our grand plan to create a ring system across the region, so that, instead of electricity being supplied from a single source, there will be an alternate source of supply, in case of a challenge”, Mr Forson said.
He indicated that “currently, Keta receive power supply from our Bulk Supply Point at Sogakope, however, this switching station makes it possible to gey power from Denu, should the Sogakope source develop a challenge.”
The switching station is one of several projects, initiated by ECG to improve the distribution of power in the region.
