MPS committed to innovation and excellence in port operations


…with first ever cutting-edge simulator at Tema Port

By Evelyn ARTHUR, Tema

Meridian Port Services Ltd. (MPS) has inaugurated a state-of-the-art equipment simulation facility at Tema Port, a move toward boosting operational efficiency and workforce development.

This initiative, the first of its kind in the country, aims to significantly enhance productivity and safety in cargo-handling operations by providing comprehensive, realistic training for operators and ultimately adding value to Tema Port stakeholders.

Speaking at the commissioning ceremony, Chief Executive Officer-MPS, Mohammed Samara, indicated that the cutting-edge simulator is among the most advanced globally and marks a significant milestone in MPS’s quest to establish itself as the ‘Hub for the Gulf of Guinea’.

Developed by ARI Simulation in New Delhi, the sophisticated equipment addresses critical aspects of crane operations – focusing on safety and efficiency.

Custom-built to mirror the specific crane models and terminal environment of MPS’s Terminal 3 at Tema, the simulator suite includes Ship-to-Shore (STS) cranes for wharf operations; electric Rubber Tyre Gantry (eRTG) cranes for container yard operations; and Reachstackers. Each module is meticulously designed to emulate the actual equipment and conditions at Tema.
