Dawa Industrial City is born
Hon. Alan Kyerematen, Minister of Trade and Industry and Hon. Peter Amewu, Energy Minister on Wednesday 19th June 2019 jointly commissioned the 2,000 acre Dawa Industrial Zone near Tema.
The Industrial Zone has a broad ecosystem of industrial and residential development, all designed to drive Ghanas industrial development. For the Dawa Sub-station, it is a 300-acre energy park designed to host power plants and petroleum tank farms. It has a purpose-built single point mooring for offloading light crude oil, finished petroleum products and natural gas. It also comes with a 350-kilovolt (KV) electricity sub-station at a cost of $30 million which presently supplies some 132MVA electricity being made available to some 120 industrial and commercial customers within the Dawa Free Zones area.
The park is also expected to tie into the Bulk Oil Storage and Transportation (BOST) gas transmission infrastructure once available, as well as GRIDCos 330KV transmission network.
Hon. Kyerematen commended the Shareholders of LMI Holdings, the Master Developers of Dawa Industrial Zone for such a magnificent investment. He indicated that the Akufo-Addo Government through both World Bank and DFID are jointly investing over $90 million to support the private sector to develop Industrial Parks and Special Economic Zones across the country.
