Energy sector gets major boost
Abu Dhabi National Energy Co. (TAQA), a state-owned oil explorer and power supplier said on Monday that it has secured a US$355million project financing and government approval to expand the Takoradi II expansion project, which holds a strong economic rationale and will be able to deliver base-load power at a highly competitive tariff and help the power system in the country diversify from hydro and oil dependency, and support the country’s growth and sustainable development.
