2016 | Ghana in need of a new port terminal
In 2016, the Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority (GPHA) signed a USD $110M with the Government of Canada, through CCC’s International Prime Contractor Service. This project was led by Canadian construction firm JV Driver, based out of Leduc, Alberta. The project took 5 years to complete, opening its doors on time and on budget in March 2021. The world class terminal sits on a 16.2 hectares’ land and it consists of a 105,000m2 of container storage and devanning area, a car storage area, control tower, water tanks, transformer house, mechanical shop, fire bay, container freight station, an office complex, banking hall, a cafeteria and an outdoor parking area among others.
“The project’s successful completion is a demonstration of Ghana’s strong bilateral cooperation with Canada.” said Kati Csaba, Canadian High Commissioner to Ghana
“CCC is proud to have partnered with JV Driver and the Ghana Ports and Harbour Authority to deliver such an important infrastructure project, whose benefits will be felt by Ghanaians for decades,” said Bobby Kwon, President and CEO of CCC.
“JV Driver is honoured to have been entrusted with such a complex project that will have a transformative impact on Ghana’s trade activities and broader economy,” said Todd Patterson, Senior Vice President of JV Driver.
