A notable piece of work Luton Engineering completed was in Kasoa – a town in Ghana that has a busy market atmosphere and population of 42,000 people. As the growth of the town rose considerable in recent years alongside local personal wealth and electricity access, the demand for power had increased which resulted in frequent power cuts.
As such, Luton Engineering was drafted in by the Electricity Board of Ghana to help solve the problem.
“Luton Engineering Services successfully designed and constructed the new transmission line on time and to budget providing the people of Kasoa a new essential piece of infrastructure investment,” said the firm.
“This investment combined with other investments being enacted by the client ECG, will help to provide a more consistent and reliable power supply for industry, commerce and the residents of Kasoa.”
