Ghanese port of Tema upgraded with 9 new RTG cranes
The Port of Tema in Ghana was recently graced with 9 new RTG cranes to help boost the country’s export capabilities. The RTG cranes were all part of the port’s continuing vision to invest in Ghana’s maritime sector. These blue giants have made quite the entrance. Five are currently being erected, and four are currently undergoing endurance tests. One of the major advantages of these RTG cranes is that they will increase storage capacity in the port by 25%. While the immediate effects of these cranes are huge, the wider implications for Ghana as a country are significant. First and foremost, the increase in terminal capacity will ensure that Tema Port becomes a key pillar in the growth of the Ghanaian economy.
The cranes will also create direct and indirect job opportunities. Many staff will also find themselves up-skilled after being trained to use these state of the art machines.
In essence, this investment demonstrates MPS’s and APM Terminals’ commitment not only to Tema Port but to Ghana. It ensures that the country continues to enjoy positive growth and fast become Africa’s model maritime nation.
