The Bridge Power Project is a 424 MW gas-fired generation project under development in Tema, Ghana, by Early Power Limited, a Ghanaian company. Early Power is sponsored by a multinational consortium comprised of Endeavor Energy, General Electric (GE) and Sage Petroleum Limited, all well-known in the energy sector for delivering sustainable, reliable and competitively-priced energy solutions in developing countries.
To be located in the Tema Heavy Industrial Area, the project includes the development of power plant facilities in two stages: Stage 1 and Stage 2, a 9 km+ pipeline for transporting liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), an LPG storage tank farm, and additional pipelines for transporting raw water and diesel to the project site. The plant will generate electricity using LPG as its primary fuel. Within five years of it becoming operational, we anticipate that the plant will switch to Natural Gas (NG) as its primary fuel, should it be made available by the Government of Ghana. Diesel is the backup fuel in the event gas is unavailable. On completion of Stage 2, the full power plant output capacity will be approximately 424MW.
The Project is being developed in two stages on an accelerated timeline and consists of the following:
Stage 1: 202 MW power block consisting of 5 General Electric TM2500+ gas turbines and 1 purpose-built GE steam turbine in Combined Cycle Gas Turbine (CCGT) configuration
Stage 2: 222 MW power block consisting of 4 General Electric LM6000 gas turbines and 1 purpose-built GE steam turbine in CCGT configuration
