Recently, with the successful delivery of two gantry cranes, the newly constructed berth of the Tema New Container Terminal Project, the largest port in Ghana, has been put into operation. The port, constructed by CCCC's subsidiary CHEC and equipped by ZPMC, is located in the southern coastal region of Ghana, adjacent to the northern shore of the Gulf of Guinea. President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo attended the inauguration ceremony.
The operation of the new berth will enhance the cargo handling capacity of the port, with an estimated annual throughput of 3.5 million standard containers. It plays an important role in promoting Ghana's trade and economic development, and positioning Ghana as a key trade and investment center in West Africa.
Ghanaian President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo emphasized that the operation of the new berth will significantly enhance the cargo handling capacity of the port. It marks a crucial step toward the modernization of the port facilities, playing a pivotal role in advancing Ghana's trade and economic growth.
The port is located just 27 kilometers from the Ghanaian capital, Accra, making it the largest port in Ghana. The expansion project includes four deepwater container berths with a total length of 1,400 meters, 121 hectares of land reclamation and foundation treatment, dredging of harbor basins, construction of revetments, and associated facilities. ZPMC has provided a total of 10 gantry cranes and 32 tyre cranes for the port.
