While our 225 MW wind farm Ayitepa in Ghana is fully permitted in the meanwhile, the project at Konikablo is also making substantial development progress. As a next step, we have handed-in to the Energy Commission by mid of January 2018 the application for the so-called Siting Permit.
After a lengthy approval- and registration process, which took us more than 3 years, the required land lease contract for the part of the project area, which is managed by the Government of Ghana, could be signed recently.
On 24th October 2016, we received the Airspace Safety Permit from the Ghana Civil Aviation Authority regarding the construction and operation of the 225 MW wind farm at Ayitepa. This was the last missing permit which completes now the application process for this project.
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.
