Ghana, Feasibility Study for Ports of Tema and Takoradi Master Plans (2008-2010)

In 2002 Ghana began implementing master plans for its major ports. Since then its shipping environment has changed, its economy has grown, its trade regime has been liberalized, and its ports have undertaken their first concession transaction. On behalf of the Ghana Ports and Harbors Authority (GPHA), Nathan Associates is revising master plans for the Port of Tema and the Port of Takoradi and preparing a new organizational structure and framework for privatization.

The new plans will guide improvements necessary to handle the rapid rise in traffic and consequent rise in demand for port services, guide the expansion of private sector participation in port infrastructure, and guide organizational reform and strategy. Our team is

  • Preparing 20-year forecasts for each port;
  • Analyzing vessel deployment patterns;
  • Evaluating operational layout, configuration, and overall performance;
  • Assessing organizational arrangements for the ports and the GPHA;
  • Reviewing financial performance and tariff structures;
  • Analyzing market strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, threats;
  • Developing concession and franchise arrangements for new container facilities in Tema; and
  • Assessing the financial and economic feasibility of improvements proposed for the ports.

We are also collecting information on port organizational structure, staffing, and management, and the GHPA’s strategic plans and agreements with stevedoring companies.
