The Takoradi Port dredging program is scheduled to begin next month, according to the Director of the Takoradi Port, Capt. James Owusu Koranteng.
The dredging works will be underway from December 10, 2014, until March 2015, followed by the construction of the quay wall which will end in 2016.
Belgian dredging and marine construction giant Jan De Nul will undertake this capital development project.
The Takoradi Port expansion scheme will involve construction of oil services terminal, reclamation of land area of 53,000 hectares, dredging of an access channel and construction of a bulk terminal.
When finished, the project is expected to position the port to receive bigger vessels, improve the turnaround time and eliminate double handling of cargoes.
