The President of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, today commissioned two ultra-modern IHC Beaver 50 dredgers and marine equipment of Dredge Masters Limited (DML).
Unveiling the dredging equipment at the DML yard at Adjei Kojo in Ashaiman, Accra, the President said that this new fleet of DML will not only help curb the yearly flooding in Accra but also improve marine lives.
Also, he added that dredging companies have traditionally contributed to coastal protection.
“For us in Ghana, Dredge Masters has made significant contributions in this area, and the introduction today of the two ultra-modern IHC Beaver 50 dredgers means that Ghana, within the West African market, has her own indigenous company which can dredge to a depth of 16 metres,” Akufo-Addo said.
With this development, the President pointed out that Ghana will not need to look outside anymore when it comes to the dredging of dams, reservoirs, ports, harbours and land reclamation activities.
