MPS bolters power supply at Terminal 3


By Evelyn ARTHUR, Tema

Meridian Port Services (MPS) has undertaken a significant upgrade to its existing backup power generation plant – from 12 MVA to 21 MVA -7 at Tema Port,  Terminal 3, recognising the critical importance of uninterrupted power supply to sustain enhanced cargo-handling.

This power upgrade ensures that even in the event of a power outage from the national grid, an optimal number of cranes – 12 on the quay and 41 in the yard – remain operational.

Speaking at the contract-signing ceremony at MPS Terminal 3 in Tema, Chief Executive Officer-MPS, Mohammed Samara, expressed  confidence in Kohler and their official distributor, Nesstra Ghana Ltd., to deliver on their promises – adding that the  decision to entrust Kohler and Nesstra with this crucial project stems from their proven track record in providing tailored mechanical and electrical solutions.

This commitment, according to him, cements Tema Port Terminal 3 as one of sub-Saharan Africa’s most efficient ports, drawing acclaim from leading global shipping lines.

“This milestone features MPS’s dedication to providing round-the-clock service delivery to its esteemed clientele, ensuring operational efficiency and reliability during power supply interruptions via the national grid,” Mr. Samara said.

Furthermore, “By bolstering our standby power capacity, MPS management and shareholders reaffirm our dedication to delivering excellence and sustaining the highest service levels, thus laying a robust foundation for future growth,” he indicated.
