Kpone Unity Terminal

The Kpone Unity Terminal construction has been completed and handed over to the Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority (GPHA) after five years of commencement of work.

The world class terminal, is located on a 16.2 hectare land along the Kpone Barrier to Kpone Township road and consists of a 105,000m2 of container storage and devanning area, a car storage area, control tower, water tanks, and transformer house.

Other facilities include: a mechanical shop, fire bay, container freight station, office complex, banking hall, a cafeteria, and an outdoor parking area.

The Kpone Unity Terminal was designed to serve as an off-dock terminal for devanning activities from the Port of Tema.

JV-Driver Projects Incorporated was the main sub-contractor; and was funded through a USD 126 million loan procured from the Canadian Commercial Corporation under a finance, engineer, procure and construct contract.

Ms Kati Csaba, Canadian High Commissioner to Ghana, stated during the handing-over that the project’s successful completion was a demonstration of Ghana’s strong bilateral cooperation with Canada.

Ms Csaba said “this facility would enable Ghana to benefit more fully from increased economic opportunities presented by the AfCFTA and contribute to Ghana’s economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.”

Mr George Bredu, General Manager, Special Duties at GPHA, speaking on behalf of the Director General, expressed pleasure with the quality of work done and expressed gratitude to all individuals associated with the completion of the project.

The Ghana news Agency (GNA) was established on March 5, 1957, i.e. on the eve of Ghana's independence and charged with the "dissemination of truthful unbiased news". It was the first news agency to be established in Sub-Saharan Africa. GNA was part of a comprehensive communication policy that sought to harness the information arm of the state to build a viable, united and cohesive nation-state. GNA has therefore been operating in the unique role of mobilizing the citizens for nation building, economic and social development, national unity and integration.
