Description of the project

Congestion in the Port of Tema and a strong growth in the import in building materials results in a requirement for more ship-to-shore capacity. Plans have been drawn up to develop a new jetty within the existing harbour for the unloading of vessels importing dry bulk cargoes as clinker and cement. PCR investigated the market requirements, reviewed existing plans for construction and phasing of the new jetty and reviewed the capacity of the new facility and the hinterland transport capacity.
