The Vice President of Micoperi, Claudio Bartolotti, said: “We are delighted to have been selected to execute the EPC for this project of strategic importance, not only for Ghana but also the wider West Africa region. Micoperi’s established experience in Ghana and in delivering similar projects in other markets ensures execution to the highest international standards.”
The CEO of Quantum Power, Matty Vengerik, said: “Following the rigorous international EPC tender process, which we launched last year, Micoperi has emerged as the successful bidder. We look forward to a professional collaboration to ensure the timely commissioning of this strategic facility, which has the full backing of the Government of Ghana.”
