Some weeks ago, the boundary demarcation work for the 225 MW Wind Farm Ayitepa has started with the aim of setting out the project perimeter in the field so it is clearly marked and visible. Furthermore, the boundary demarcation will bring clarity in the rather complex land ownership situation at the project site and help mediate existing disputes.
On the 19th of August 2016, the official customary rites performance took place at the Ningo Traditional Council.
Students and teachers from twenty selected schools from the Great Ningo Traditional Area within the Ningo-Prampram District Directorate of the Ghana Education Service, Greater Accra Region, cheerfully celebrated the Global Wind Day 2016 on the 22 nd of June in Dawa. The students had been participating in a drawing contest sponsored by Lekela Power BV and Upwind Ayitepa Ltd. with the topic of “Wind Energy for Ghana”. From each school, the best drawings had been selected and their creators, as well as representative teachers, had been invited to the event. Thus, the prize-giving to announce the winner drawing was eagerly anticipated.
Ghanaian President His Excellency John Dramani Mahama on June 14th toured the Ningo-Prampram District in the Greater Accra Region to inspect the Saglemi Affordable Housing Project. During his visit, he commissioned a 1,500 housing unit at Ningo and stated that his government is committed to provide Ghanaians with decent homes and living.
On 9th May 2016, the final Power Purchase Agreement for the 225 MW wind farm at Ayitepa was signed at the Headquarters of the Electricity Company of Ghana Ltd. (ECG) in Accra.
