Eiffage signs €104m contract to build a port platform in Ghana

Eiffage, through its Eiffage Génie Civil and RMT subsidiaries, has been awarded a 104 million euro design-and-build contract by Meridian Port Services –comprising Bolloré Transport & Logistics, APMT, and Ghana Ports and Harbour Authority– for a 97.6-hectare port platform at Tema, Ghana.

It will take four months of studies and 26 months of works to complete this project. The contract also provides for a possible 29.4-hectare extension.

The work to be done includes carrying out general earthworks, installing wet and dry utilities, building road structures, producing and laying 42 million paving slabs, constructing gantries and site access routes, creating a power station and installing various systems (including quayside and port gantry power supplies, automatic barriers, lighting and monitoring systems…).

This is the Group’s third project for Bolloré in Africa, following work at the Port of Lomé in Togo, delivered in 2016, and at the Port of Freetown in Sierra Leone which is due for completion in mid-2018.
