Noteworthy, the office is a specially made modular unit where development and planning meetings between Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority (GPHA) and its technical partners would take place. It is also going to have an information center where all information regarding the project would be acquired by all people including the Keta community members.

Keta Sea Port project procurement phase

The Ghanian Minister of Transport said that discussions critical to the commencement of the project are currently ongoing and at an advanced stage, and that the procurement processes were expected to be completed by the third quarter of 2022.

He also disclosed that the project would be implemented in phases, the first of which will cost approximately US$ 600M. Dubbed the ‘Port Nuclues’, this phase will consist of the main facilities that would also be the key drivers of the commercial port.

The facilities, in question, include a commercial port gate with the access control and administration building, a multipurpose terminal with a berth of 500metres, and a RoRo Dock, an oil terminal consisting of a tank farm and an oil jetty.

The other facilities are a shipyard with a dedicated basin for floating docks and vessel maintenance, fishing port and related amenities, small craft services, and access roads.

  1. The goodwill among Ghanaians is just overshadowed by deliberate program of lies and half truths of the opposition, but there are numerous good work and projects like the Pwalugu Dam and the rail projects initiated and on-going by Akufo Addo to be completed by the time he is existing office, then the lies will be vanquished to reveal his achievements and legacy.

  2. Hope The government of Ghana will actually do a good job by making sure the correct and durable harbour is built to ascertain the hope that is fading in this Nana Addo’s government. And also have his memory instilled in the minds of Ghanaians positively.
