WAPP APL 1 (2nd Phase - COASTAL TRANSMISSION BACKBONE)—PID

Description

The developmental objective of the Coastal Transmission Backbone Project of the WAPP
APL (WAPP APL 1) is to increase access of national power systems of Côte d’Ivoire, Ghana, Togo,
Benin and Nigeria (collectively, the WAPP “Zone A” coastal states) to more stable and reliable electricity
as a means to alleviate power supply deficits and/or to reduce their collective vulnerability to droughtinducedpower supply disruptions. This developmental objective is to be achieved, inter alia, by: (a)establishing a robust 330 kV transmission link from the Prestea, Aboadze and Volta substations (Ghana)through the Mome Hagou sub-station (Togo) and Sakété sub-station (Benin) to the Ikeja West substationnear Lagos, Nigeria; and (b) assisting transmission system operators of WAPP “Zone A” Coastal States tocollectively put in place and fully deploy a WAPP Cooperation Agreement (Figure 2), incorporating a“Operational Security and Mitigation Plan” for the CTB, by the year 2009.
