The Meridian Port Services (MPS) Tema Port connects Ghana’s shipping industry to the rest of West and Central Africa. Its ambitious expansion will accommodate larger ships and improve the harbor’s facilities and equipment, all while focusing on resource efficiency. The EDGE-certified Terminal Three consists of three separate buildings that include a workshop and maintenance building, offices for administrative purposes and offices for the port’s authorities. MPS designed the buildings to maximize the use of natural daylight while implementing technical solutions to reduce the consumption of energy and water.
MPS is a joint venture between the Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority, Bolloré Transport & Logistics and APM Terminals. The company is committed to supporting the sustainable growth of Ghana by investing in the country’s infrastructure with a localized approach. In the expansion of the Tema Port, 95 percent of the materials used will be locally procured and the project will provide over 1,000 jobs for Ghanaians. The expansion of the port is also part of the government’s larger goal to improve Ghana’s trade flows and bring greater economic development to the country. Tema Port – Terminal Three has received final EDGE certification from thinkstep-SGS.
