OMA is delighted to announce the signing of an agreement with the GPHA (Ghana Ports & Harbour Authority) which appoints OMA Ghana as managers of a newly implemented dedicated Ship to Ship (STS) exclusive zone, inside ports limits of Tema Port in Ghana.

The mandate to manage the zone has been placed on OMA Ghana Ltd who have extensive expertise and knowledge of STS operations along the coast. The Port has agreed all operational mechanisms with OMA Ghana to ensure smooth operations in the zone. “

The dedicated zone will be patrolled continuously by the GPHA and the Ghana Navy and falls within these coordinates:
