Development Of A 10MW Biomass Power Plant
AEA identified the opportunity to add value to the client’s shea nut procurement processing business and offered to invest its time and resources to lead the development of a biomass power plant. The client supports 2000+ women shea nuts out grower scheme in the Northern part of Ghana, one of the poorest regions in Ghana. AEA wanted to demonstrate how additional value could be created for stakeholders and the environment. When completed, the power plant would use the shea nut waste and the processing power to produce, provide power and heat to the processing plant and sell any excess to other customers. An international competitive bid for the plant was completed in August 2017. AEA’s task is to develop the project and find an investor for it.
