The order comprises ECH mast trucks, four LCH reach stackers and two 16 tonne FLTs. They will be operated at the new Tema Port Expansion (Terminal 3), which will be run by Meridian Port Services (MPS).


When T3 is completed, the port will have the capacity to accommodate four large container vessels simultaneously along 1,400m of quay.


John Traynor, Managing Director of Paterson Simons, said: “Since the inception of MPS in 2007 and the initial supply of Konecranes reach stackers, forklift trucks and empty container handlers, Paterson Simons has maintained a proud association with the terminal and its crucial role in keeping Ghana’s trade flowing.


"The new acquisitions demonstrate continued trust in Konecranes’ products and service and we look forward to continuing to work with the new terminal as it expands to greater success.


All the machines are equipped with TRUCONNECT remote monitoring including Konecranes Work Zone, which enhances safety using geofencing technology.


Mohamed Samara, CEO of MPS, is quoted: “MPS is determined to keep advancing terminal capacity in this important region of global trade. Our customers expect the very best equipment and service, and this investment reiterates our commitment to world-class terminal services.”
