Civil Society Lauds Cylinder Recirculation Model Implementation

The CSOs at the Tema Plant

Civil society organizations have welcomed the implementation of the cylinder recirculation model (CRM) being spearhead by the National Petroleum Authority (NPA).

The Executive Secretary of Chamber of Petroleum Consumers (COPEC), Duncan Amoah, and the Executive Director of the Institute for Energy Security (IEA), Nana Amoasi VIi, said the NPA and its partners had done a lot of work to see to the seamless execution of the programme.

They were speaking in separate interviews after site visits to a cylinder bottling plant at Tema and a cylinder manufacturing company at the North Industrial Area in Accra on Wednesday.

Mr. Amoah said about 94 percent of the infrastructure work had been completed.

He said the remaining six percent was about closing the loose ends, and ensuring additional safety standards.

“Quite a lot of work has been done. The Authority has not gone to sleep.

“All said and done I believe that the facility will go on well looking at the structure in place”, he stressed.

For his part, Nana Amoasi VII said given that most of the bottling pants were ready, the CRM was good to go.

Nana Amoasi VII, however, observed that the bottling area was in the right shape, but noted that the conveyor belt was made up of metal instead of rubber.

He urged the company to speed up the test run of the facility to ensure smooth operations.
