Power generation

Genser Energy’s power generation business is made up of combined cycle generation systems, renewable energy generation and power transmission assets. Over the past 18 years, we have built and commissioned eight power plants and continue to own, operate and maintain five of these in Ghana.

The Tarkwa plant is located on the mining concession of Gold Fields Limited, a South African mining company. The Tarkwa gold mine in the Tarkwa Nsuaem district of the Western Region of Ghana.

The plant is made up of three Solar Mars 100 gas turbines each with a capacity of 11.5MW and two Solar Titan 130s with 16.5MW capacity each. Currently, the Tarkwa plant’s installed capacity is 66MW and available capacity is 58MW.

The Tarkwa plant was commissioned in November 2016 and commenced operations immediately. The plant is directly connected to an existing 11kV line that runs between the Tarkwa plant and the Gold Fields mine.

The Tarkwa plant has run on natural gas since 2019 and focuses on efficient, reliable generation and delivery of electricity for the Gold Fields mine.
