The Volta River Authority (VRA) needs 215 million dollars to expand the Aboadze Thermal Plant to respond to the power needs of industries and domestic users.

The expansion project will include construction of two combined turbines each with a capacity of 110 kilowatts.

The Director of Power Sales of VRA, Charles Darku, said these last Friday when the Parliamentary Select Committee on Energy and Finance met officials of VRA and the Takoradi International Corporation (TICO) over the feasibility of a new loan facility for the T2 project.

The meeting also discussed the operation of VRA/TICO and how to make funds available to position the Aboadze Plant as a major player in the country's technological and power advancement.
