The Director of Communication at the Ghana Water Company Limited (GWCL).

Stanley Martey, says he is optimistic the Teshie Desalination Plant, which treats sea water for domestic and commercial use, will resume operations by the end of February.

He said that was premised on the possible successful conclusion of the renegotiation of the agreement between GWCL and Befessa, owners of the plant.

In an interview in Accra last Sunday, Mr. Martey promised that the outcome of the renegotiation would be made known to the public.

The Teshie Desalination Plant Agreement was signed between the GWCL and Befessa, on a build, own, operate and transfer (BOOT) basis in February 2011.

The plant was built in February 2015 to address water supply shortfalls, particularly in the Teshie-Nungua area.

In spite of its construction, some residents still complain of water shortages.
