Ghana Trains Nigerian Technicians in Power Transmission

Ghana Grid Company Limited (GRIDCo), has started a 5-day training workshop for technical staff of the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN), as part of GRIDCo’s growing partnership with power utilities within the sub-region.
GRIDCo over the years, has had interconnections for the exchange of power between Ivory Coast, and Togo and Benin before the West African Power Pool (WAPP) started operation.
Opening the training programme, Mr. Mark Baah, Director of System Operations welcomed the trainees and urged them to take the entire workshop seriously since the main objective is to improve on the efficiency of power delivery both locally and internationally. He added that, electricity accessibility in Ghana currently, stands at 86%.
Mr. Baah said, it is necessary for both countries to design a format to continue with the training arrangement for progress for efficiency in power supply within the sub-region.
Narrating how Ghana’s grid system has grown, Mr. Baah said Ghana’s installed power capacity has doubled, with about 6,000 circuit kilometers of transmission lines.
He revealed that, the Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) which started as an analog system but has been transformed into digital.
He reiterated the need for power utilities to do diligent procurement of their SCADA to avoid frequent system breakdowns with resultant high financial cost in repairs.
The Director, Human Resource and Services, Wing Cdr. Samuel Allotey, run the trainees through the training structure with the ultimate goal for them to be familiar with activities in GRIDCo’s SCADA and Telecommunication Systems.
He indicated that, GRIDCo is adopting three basic training methodologies. These are: Instructional, Interactive and Fieldwork, adding that SCADA is very technical and trainees need hands-on exposure to be able to manage their SCADA and Telecommunication Systems.
