Brew-Butler to build thermal power plant in Zambia
Known in Ghana as a football administrator and businessman, Nana Sam Brew-Butler is taking his business interests to east Africa, and this time he is getting into power generation.
Nana Brew-Butler once served as the chairman of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) and also owns a football club, Ebusua Dwarfs in Ghana.
A story carried by a Zambian publication, the Post says Nana Brew-Butler has expressed interest in setting up a thermal power generation plant in Zambia.
Nana Butler is the Executive Chairman of the energy company, JG Global Gas and Oilfield Services Ltd, which has offices in Nigeria and Ghana.
“I am in Zambia for a few days and I am hoping to have a talk with Zesco and the government on setting up a thermal power generation plant. I know that Zambia mainly generates hydro power but you should think outside the box as a country and explore other ways of generating power like thermal power and liquid fuel,” he was quoted as saying.
Nana Brew-Butler said his company was currently running a US $400 million thermal power plant in Ghana and was ready to set up a plant in Zambia if given a chance, the report indicated.
But ghanabusinessnews.com checks on the Ghana project revealed otherwise. A source close to Nana Brew-Butler told ghanabusinessnews.com that the information carried in the Zambian medium cannot be correct. According to the source, Nana Brew-Butler’s company, Global Solutions Ghana Ltd., has secured permits from the GNPC to build thermal power generation plants in Ghana. The source said Nana Brew-Butler’s company intends to build the power plants in Kpone in the Eastern Region and Bonyire in the Western Region.
