Background

The MacBaron Group announced plans to build the Ketu North power plant in January 2013. The Ketu power plant project is meant to be a base load provider for the West Africa Power Pool (WAPP).[1] The project will use liquefied natural gas brought in by train until piped natural gas becomes available.[2] In April 2013, local communities announced that they had set aside land for the project.[3]

The project has been delayed due to government regulatory issues.[4]
