Unilever Ghana constructing $17.5m CHP plant

A $17.5m combined heat and power (CHP) Plant is to be constructed by Unilever Ghana to improve its factory operations.

The plant will utilize gas as the source of fuel instead of the residual fuel oil and hydro-electric power the factory is currently using.

Speaking at the commissioning ceremony, Mr David Mureithi, Managing Director of Unilever West Africa, said in partnership with GENSER POWER Africa, the project would ensure improved cost efficiency in the operations at the factory.

Mr Mureithi said other benefits would include more reliable, stable and better quality power for Unilver’s operations and the discontinuation of the use of residual fuel oil.
