Ghana’s power transmission company, GRIDCo, has been adjudged the power company of the year 2022 after beating five competing companies at this year’s Ghana Energy Awards held at the Labadi Beach Hotel in Accra, the capital of Ghana.
GRIDCo, which is headed by Ing Ebenezer Kofi Essienyi, beat Volta River Authority, Electricity Company of Ghana, Sunon Asogli Power Ghana Limited, Alpha TND and Wilkins Engineering Limited.
The awards ceremony, which was organised by the Energy Media Group, was on the theme: “Global Decarbonisation: A Just And Equitable Energy Transition In Ghana.”
The ceremony brought together energy sector players from both private and state institutions.
Commenting on the award, Ambassador Kabral Blay-Amihere, Chairman of the Governing Board of GRIDCo, said: “This well-deserved award is a very definitive recognition and appreciation of GRIDCo’s hardworking work force which in spite of many challenges never loses sight of the mission of GRIDCo-to be the backbone to sustainable power delivery in Ghana and beyond. Board, Management and the entire staff deserve every praise for keeping their eye on the ball. I salute the CEO, Ing Ebenezer Essienyi who since his appointment has done so much to build on the foundations of his predecessors and by so doing has led GRIDCo to add our previous feats in the sector. The Board, Management and Staff should be inspired by this recognition to do more for GRIDCo and Ghana”.
