The Ghana Ports & Harbors Authority (GPHA) announced recently that construction operations on the $1.5 billion Tema Port Expansion Project have officially started.
This capital development project, expected to be completed by the 4th quarter of 2019, is being executed by the Meridian Port Services (MPS), which is a consortium of three main institutions, Bollore Transport & Logistics, APM Terminal and GPHA.
Contract for the construction of the Tema Port Expansion Project has been awarded to the China Harbor Engineering Company (CHEC) and AECOM professional services (Ghana).
The new Port of Tema will be able to accommodate next generation ships (up to 18.000 TEUs) and handle the increasing flows of goods to and from Ghana and the hinterland, the officials announced.
