This follows the completion of a comprehensive agreement with Best & Crompton Engineering of India to design, supply, install and commission in June the power infrastructure which will provide 33/11kV substation equipment to the City of Light and a 20/26MW power transformer for the project.
?The delivery of the power substation equipment is a significant milestone in the development of Appolonia ? City of Light,? said Anthony Okyere, Director of Appolonia Development Company Limited. ?Our recently launched residential phase, Nova Ridge, will be the first beneficiary of this infrastructure investment, which will also serve future phases in both the residential and commercial areas.?

Our decades of experience and reputation for delivery in this sector make us a natural partner for Appolonia ? City of Light.?
The power transformer, manufactured in India by Crompton Greaves Limited, was designed in collaboration with Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) ? a unique demonstration of a private sector-led expenditure in close cooperation with a Ghanaian public utility.
?Appolonia ? City of Light is a pioneer in urban planning in Ghana, and we appreciate their close collaboration,? said Ing Julius Kpekpena, Director of Engineering at the ECG. .
