UK-Ghana Chamber of Commerce (UKGCC) CEO, Tony Burkson, toured the Strategic Power Solutions (SPS) Factory on Wednesday morning.
Ofori Boateng, the CEO of SPS, took Mr. Burkson through the daily processes of the factory and introduced him to the key players of his operations. Mr. Burkson saw the different steps in the process by which solar panels are manufactured in Ghana and learned about the various bene-ts of renewable energy.
SPS became a member of the UKGCC because they are working to build partnerships with other companies in the renewable energy sector, both Ghanaian and British, and strongly believe that joining the chamber would give them these opportunities.
The new Akufo-Addo government has placed renewable energy high on their list. Boakye Agyarko, the energy minister, talked about the importance of using renewable energy during his recent vetting, he stressed the importance of using these resources to reduce the cost of electricity to government institutions such as ministries, schools, hospitals, etc. The work that SPS is doing will go along way to support the government’s drive to increase renewable energy in Ghana.
Mr Burkson shared his thoughts on his visit, “I am very impressed with what SPS is doing locally and I’m really keen to see how Ghanaian and UK companies can partner to foster growth within the renewable energy sector. I believe the UKGCC will play a big role in forming these partnerships.
The Chamber would like to welcome Strategic Power Solutions as a member and thank them for this very informative and inspiring experience.
