  • Description

    THE GHANAIAN VESSEL "LAKE BOSOMTWE" CALLING AT GHANA'S NEW DEEP WATER PORT OF TEMA BROUGHT WITH HER A GENERATOR WEIGHING 110 TONS FOR THE VOLTA DAM.

    THE GENERATOR WAS LOADED AT HALIFAX, CANADA, LAST AUGUST. THE SHIP WAS CHOSEN AS IT IS ABLE TO LIFT ON ITS OWN SUCH A HEAVY CARGO WITHOUT ANY HELP ON SHORE.

    A FLEET OF HEAVY LOW LOADERS, THE LARGEST IN GHANA, TRANSPORTED IT TO THE DAM SITE AT AKOSOMBO. EACH TRUCK IS CAPABLE OF CARRYING UP TO 130 TONS.

    WORK AT THE SITE IS NOW HALF COMPLETED AND BY THE END OF THE YEAR IS SCHEDULED TO BE FINISHED. IT WILL THEN BECOME THE KINGPIN OF GHANA'S ECONOMY.
