Harnessing The Wind
The Swiss renewable energy company NEK Umwelttechnik AG (NEK) has been in existence and developing wind farms in Ghana since 1998 through its Accra branch NEK (Ghana) Ltd.
NEK is carrying out several wind energy projects in locations in the Greater Accra Region of Ghana between Tema and Ada, consisting of 6 large-scale wind parks which are ready for construction.
The total capacity to be installed is approximately 1,300 MW. These will produce per year about 3,400 GWh of clean, sustainable, home-made, never ending, and cheap electricity for the Ghanaian population and the industrial sector and contribute with a yearly average production capacity of 450 MW to the electricity supply of the country.
