Industry backs West Africa’s most exciting conference and expo
The second day of WAMPOC 2018 opened with an examination of the energy sector – from new automation processes through to where West Africa stands with regard to future renewable solutions.
Then Dr Nii Darko Asante, Director – Technical Regulation, Energy Commission presented a session on Ghana’s ‘abnundant gas supply’ and how this will be utilised to benefit the country.
From there the day moved to look at health and safety, including improvements at small mines, and then moved to look at financing options with a strong panel offering some unique perspectives on the future of investment.
Barbara Gbologah-Quaye of PYXERA Global commended the organisers for “an extremely informative power session this morning, which provided up-to-date information on the current state of the sector. This will be very useful for industry partners in decision making.”
Suleman Koney, the Chief Executive Office of Ghana Chamber of Mines – a long-time partner of WAMPOC – praised organisers. He said: “A world class mining conference agenda is unfolding alongside the largest mining expo in the region as delegates discuss the pertinent issues of power supply to mines and innovations in power generation and emission control.
“The Ghana Chamber of Mines and this event go back many fruitful years together – and long may it continue.”
Alberto Vicari of EBARA was impressed with the standards at both the conference and the WAMPEX exhibitor floor. He said: “WAMPEX has been good, we’ve met clients from Nigeria and Burkina Faso.
