Utility Operational and Financial Turnaround - Ghana

The Project

The Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) was funded by the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC), to address unreliable electricity supply and insufficient access to electricity. ESB International provided Technical Advisory Services to the ECG from 2017 to 2019, assisting them in carrying out their financial and operational turnaround obligations.

Our Approach

  • The Challenge
    Over the past few decades, ECG has been affected by both operational and financial challenges. Common trends among these challenges were high technical and commercial losses. 
  • The Solution 
    Embedded within the ECG organisation, ESB International provided technical and commercial advisory services during the implementation of their projects under the MCC funded Compact. This helped strengthen and modernise the ECG utility operations, helping to support sector growth and improvement.
