Dredge Masters Ghana and IHC Dredging are boosting African capacity

It is with great pleasure that IHC Dredging and Dredge Masters Limited announce the commissioning of two Beaver® cutter suction dredgers and marine equipment. The commissioning was done by His Excellency, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, President of the Republic of Ghana, during a ceremony that took place on Wednesday 25 May in Ghana.

The support of His Excellency, the President of the Republic of Ghana, and his strong vision for the Republic of Ghana is greatly appreciated by all parties. The commissioning of the dredgers and
equipment provides this African company with cutting edge marine technology, to be operated by local engineers and technical staff. This capacity will be a major breakthrough in the African region.

Dr. Joseph Siaw Agyepong, Chairman of the Jospong Group, reacted: “Our objective is to be the most successful African Holding company, leading in every sector we operate. With our mission ‘improving the lives of people’ dredging has become an important part of our group.”

We aim to become the leading provider of dredging, marine and related services in Africa through sustained, environmentally friendly and effective standards. To do so, we partner with organisations who are able to supply us with the best suitable equipment and knowledge. This has resulted in the partnership with IHC Dredging.”

In addition to two Beaver 50® dredgers, IHC Dredging has delivered two Delta Multi Craft work boats to perform all supporting operations. Furthermore, a critical spare parts package, training package, planned maintenance system and two discharge pipeline systems are included.
