Prime Meridian Docks Officially Opens Takoradi Facility

In a ceremony attended by Mr Kweku Ofori Asiamah, Ghana’s Minister of Transport, Mr. Paul Ansah, the Director General of the Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority and other dignitaries and guests, Prime Meridian Docks Ghana Limited officially opened its brand new offices and workshop in Takoradi Port.

The facility is located on the quayside within a secure compound and features offices for staff and clients, meeting rooms and equipment workshops, together with warehousing and open storage areas.

Prime Meridian Docks is West Africa’s newest repair and maintenance facility, catering for the needs of the maritime transportation, fishing and offshore oil and gas industries and this event sees the completion of the first phase of the company’s development, which will be followed by the acquisition of a floating dock and further expansion of the support infrastructure.

Commenting at the ceremony, Chief Executive Officer Stanley Ahorlu said that the project will create some 300 new jobs, while the geographic location and Ghana’s stability makes the port an attractive option for ship and rig owners, whether working in Ghana in transit to other locations.

Prime Meridian Docks provides ship owners with a cost-effective port-call option for planned and unplanned maintenance, repairs, inspection and re-certification, modifications and refits. The facility supports offshore project mobilizations, as well as asset preservation, lay-up/stacking and reactivation. The company also holds Free Zone Enterprise Status, enabling it to offer customers competitive pricing and a more efficient service delivery due to the minimal customs procedures for imports of spares and parts.
