Meridian Port Services Ltd (MPS) and China Harbor Engineering Company (CHEC) have signed an agreement to carry out the second phase of the Tema Port Expansion Project.

According to MPS, this agreement involves the construction of the 4th and the last berth of the new port.

The new contract adds another 400 meters of berth to the 1000 meter already being built creating a total of 1.4 kilometers of full capacity berth capable of handling vessels up to 16-meter draft, reported MPS.

They also said that the second phase will add about 30 hectares of land to the total area, creating a total of 127 hectares of new terminal.

This contract and the further works to be done to prepare this area add a total value of over $110 million to the project and further investment in operating equipment will increase these amounts by another $100 million when throughput volumes increase,” said Chief Executive Officer of MPS, Mr. Mohamed Samara. “The additional berth is envisaged to be completed by the end of 2020, two years ahead of its original schedule.

The Project Director for the Tema Port Expansion Project, Mr. Mark Nolet commended, “We have stuck with CHEC because of their track record as we have experienced in the first phase of this project. They have demonstrated that they are indeed remarkable port builders and we are happy to partner them in this 2nd Phase.
