Project Darko Farms, Kumasi
With the Darko Farms project, EWIA has commissioned the third project in the Ashanti capital. This solar plant was also built together with the AFREECA Group. The system was installed on the roof of a chicken hatchery of the agricultural company Darko Farms &Co. Ltd, one of the largest and oldest chicken producers in West Africa. This solar plant was also equipped with a battery storage, so that an uninterrupted and constant energy supply for the heat- and electricity-intensive production is guaranteed. The Darko Farms project is EWIA's first agricultural project.
A challenge was to install the control technology in a way that was as dust-protected as possible, so that many years of trouble-free operation could be ensured.
Project A1 Hospital
With A1 Hospital, one of the leading clinics in Kumasi, EWIA has successfully implemented the first solar project for a hospital. The hospital suffers time and again from erratic power supply and grid fluctuations. These also affect the power supply during procedures in the operating theatre. With the solar system in combination with battery storage, this is now a thing of the past. The building consists of several floors. Due to the exposed location, the earthing and lightning protection concept had to be redesigned, among other things. Due to the wind loads, it was also necessary to reinforce the roof.

Osko Lodge in Kumasi, Ghana
Welcome to Kumasi, the vibrant capital of Ghana’s Ashanti Region! Here in the country’s second-most populated city, located in a rain forest region near Lake Bosomtwe in the south of Ghana, we just completed the installation of a sophisticated solar system at Osko Lodge!
With future generations on his mind, Dr. Ebenezer Osei Kofi, the owner of Osko Lodge, appreciates both saving money in the long run and reducing the hotel’s carbon footprint. This is yet another project EWIA tackled alongside our partners Afreeca.
Orphanage Koforidua, Ghana
EWIA, in cooperation with the two companies Huawei and Jubaili Bros, has electrified an orphanage with solar energy and a battery, letting the sun shine for almost a dozen orphans and their carers in Ghana.
ARCCU Credit Union in Takoradi, Ghana
With the solar hybrid system from Jubaili Bros, ARCCU succeeds in reducing its carbon footprint in two ways. First, by drawing less electricity from the thermal power station (oil and gas) in Sekondi-Takoradi, and second, in the event of a power outage. If power goes out, the plant communicates with ARCCU's diesel generator, which reduces diesel consumption and thus polluting emissions by up to 70 percent. In connection with the solar power system, the existing diesel generator could be replaced by a new, significantly smaller diesel generator, which in turn results in lower CO2 emissions.
Emmanuel Prah, manager of ARCCU, comments: "This plant is a milestone in our sustainability strategy not only in financial terms, but also in ecological terms, as we have to think about the next generation.”
In 2021, EWIA Infrastructure successfully completed the first four telecommunication towers and installed over 20 video security systems.
EWIA Infrastructure is a joint venture of EWIA Green Investments GmbH and Tong New Energy Ltd. from Accra, Ghana.
Private House in Kumasi, Ghana
The small solar system with battery was installed together with our cooperation partner AFREECA. A new control technology is used, which ensures an uninterruptible power supply.
Regal Hotel in Tamale, Ghana
Our first project in Tamale is successfully up and running. The award-winning hotel is one of the best and most popular hotels in Tamale. The solar installation is our flagship project for the northern region in Ghana. For the hotel, the solar installation is an investment that pays immediate off by reducing its carbon footprint and ensuring an uninterrupted power supply for the hotel.
