Banjul, The Gambia – Karpowership has been connected to The Gambia’s national grid since May 2018 and been providing reliable and affordable electricity since the first day of operation. Karadeniz Powership Koray Bey, with its 36 MW has helped to significantly reduce the electricity supply gap in the country.
Recently, Karadeniz Powership Koray Bey had to implement a technical maintenance process due to the need to renew equipment. As a floating power plant with the ability to provide continuous operation without the need for stopping service, above market standards, the Powership needed replacement of equipment for more efficient and affordable power generation. During this period, the Powership continued to generate electricity at a lower rate, and after replacement of the equipment, the Powership is back to operating at agreed contract capacity, as of February 27th, 2020 at 11:30 AMand will continue to serve the good people of The Gambia.
As a key strategic partner, Karpowership is committed to The Gambia’s development and will continue to provide all Gambians with sustainable, reliable, and affordable electricity.
