The Ghana Water Company Limited (GWCL) has asked the operators of the Teshie Desalination plant to, as a matter of urgency, operate at full capacity to help improve the water supply situation in the country.

The plant, which was shut down for about a year over some technical and operational challenges, resumed operation on March 18, this year.

Currently, it produces an average of 40,000 cubic metres of water daily instead of the overall capacity of 60,000 cubic metres a day.
