The Chief Executive Officer of Meridian Port Services (MPS)- our Elite Member, Mohamed Samara has been enstooled as Nii Adjei Kwabina, Noyaa Mantse of Tema. ICC Ghana congratulates Nii Adjei Kwabina and MPS for the good work in Tema.

MPS is taking Tema Port to another level through an ambitious expansion project which is unprecedented in the history of the port industry in sub-Saharan Africa. The project involves the building of a breakwater and an access channel harbouring deep-water berths to accommodate larger vessels with sophisticated port handling equipment. The Tema Port Expansion is designed to provide a world class harbour infrastructure for the next 100 years.

The $1.5billion Tema Port expansion project is progressing steadily with the container terminal facility which is part of the first phase of the project expected to be opened in June 2019.

Also, about 70 acres out of 168 acres of land has been reclaimed from the sea for the construction of terminals.

The expansion works which began in October 2016, is expected to have its first container berth completed and opened up for operations by the beginning of the 2nd Quarter of 2019.

The project, which is on schedule, has seen the construction 1800meters of breakwaters deep into the sea.
