Genser Energy Ghana Limited

Genser Energy Ghana Limited, an independent power producing company with a vision for community and social responsibility, has funded the construction and furnishing of a new block for the Jungle Warfare School of the Ghana Armed Forces in Akyem Achiase in the Eastern Region.

A brainchild of the Board Chairman of Genser Energy, Nana Osae Nyampong VI, the building, christened the Otwasuom Osae Nyampong VI Block, would serve as accommodation for the demonstration company of the school, providing them with essential amenities for comfortable living and training. The building is equipped with wardrobes, beds with mattresses, washrooms and a water reservoir.

The inauguration ceremony was attended by military officials, community and religious leaders and representatives from Genser Energy.

Inaugurating the block, Brigadier General Anthony Ntem, Commander, 17 Army Signal Brigade, expressed gratitude on behalf of the Chief of Defense Staff, emphasising the importance of maintaining the newly constructed block for long-term use.

“We are very grateful for this kind gesture. I want to entreat the soldiers to put the place into proper use. Maintain the place so that it will last long for us,” he stressed.

For his part, Nana Osae Nyampong VI spoke passionately about Genser’s commitment to uplifting local communities, stressing the importance of empowering Ghanaian institutions like the Jungle Warfare School.

“Ghana can only be built by Ghanaians. What you see here is an effort by Genser to make the soldiers comfortable. Thank you for giving the company [Genser] the opportunity to serve you. The block will help with efficient training,” the Board Chairman of Genser Energy added.

Lt. Col Jacob Codjoe, the Commanding Officer of the Jungle Warfare School, expressed excitement and gratitude to Genser for the support. He expressed confidence that the new building will impact the lives of the trainers and officers positively.

He said: “We are really thrilled to have this block; so grateful to Genser Energy for this kind gesture. It has come at the right time because the trainers were staying in extremely bad conditions. We need more blocks to accommodate our officers and trainers”.

Lt Col Codjoe also praised the speed and efficiency that was employed to finalise the project. The building was conceived, completed and fully furnished within three months.

In recognition of his contribution, a citation was presented to Nana Osae Nyampong VI.

The significance of the Otwasuom Osae Nyampong VI Block extends far beyond its physical structure. It is a symbol of partnership between the company and the military, demonstrating how corporate entities like Genser Energy could play a crucial role in supporting national defense efforts.

Genser Energy’s commitment to education, sports, community development and sustainability exemplifies its dedication to creating a brighter future for all Ghanaians.
