Terminal capacity

In 2004, GPHA granted MPS a concession to build and operate a container terminal. The newly constructed container terminal commenced its operations in April 2007 deploying the most advanced port equipment and technologies along with the investment in training the entire staff.

MPS has transformed the Container Handling Operations at Tema Port into a modern Container Terminal whereby MPS has constantly boosted the vessel productivity.

Over the years the Berth Utilisation increased whereby MPS continued to complement the country’s trade volume growth with investments in equipment and technology to boost the Port’s handling capacity. MPS is the region’s most efficient container terminal.With the new port development MPS further committed to design, finance, build and operate a new and much larger port able to harbour the world’s largest liner vessels on the newly built and geared 1,400 m quay where it will operate 4 container vessel berths.
