Transmission System

Power produced from the Bui Generating Plant is evacuated from the newly constructed Bui Switchyard through 161kV transmission facilities which will be operated as part of the National Interconnected Transmission System.

Bui Switchyard

A total of 240km of transmission lines were built under the project. These were two 17-km and 18-km lines which broke into the existing Sawla-Techiman line to form Bui-Sawla and Bui-Techiman lines respectively.

Other facilities constructed were:

  • 67-km Bui-Kintampo line
  • 138-km Bui-Sunyani line
