Mammoet continues its development in Africa with the opening of a new office in Accra, Ghana. This new agency is expected to advance Mammoet’s offerings of specialist services in engineered heavy lifting and transport to the West African market. The official opening of the office was marked with an opening ceremony and an exclusive reception held at the residence of the Ambassador of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Ghana, His Excellency Ron Strikker. At the opening ceremony, the Ambassador congratulated the Mammoet team and approved the Embassy’s support for the new office.
On site, the concrete plants and bungalows have been installed and 6000 m2 of earthworks have already been made during the last week of February by Eiffage Génie Civil.
The work, which will last 26 months, includes general earthworks, dry and wet networks, the pavement structure, the production and laying of some 42 million pavers, the construction of portals and access roads to the site, as well as the creation of a power generation plant and the installation of various equipment (shore and port portal power supply, automatic barriers, lighting, control systems …).
The signing of the contract for this 104 million euro project with Meridian Port Services (composed of Bolloré Transport & Logistics, APMT and Ghana Ports and Habour Authorit) had been concluded in 2017.
