Our logistics teams have over 30 years of experience in handling project cargoes in the West Africa region.
Any cargo that is too large, too specialised or just too tricky for regular transport, needs a team that knows the pitfalls, and understands what’s needed in order to ensure a smooth and expeditious transit.
This is especially important in West Africa where the final delivery site may be many miles from the port, along unsealed roads and perhaps even across borders into the landlocked countries.
OMA’s dedicated logistics teams arrange the safe handling of shipments throughout Sub Saharan Africa and can service any type of project, whether the cargo is Heavy Lift, Out of Gauge or Break Bulk. We have regular return clients in the fOil and Gas, Energy, Mining resources, Breweries, Cement and Water industries.
We have first class transport operator insurance cover with the TT Club giving you extra peace of mind.
T2 Thermal Plant, Ghana
The Takoradi International Company, which owns and operates the Takoradi 2 power plant, sought financing to convert and expand the plant to allow it to run on both natural gas and light crude oil using technology that would increase capacity by 50 percent without using additional fuel OMA Logistics Ghana transported two giant motor stools boxed in huge cases measuring 3.6m x 3.6 m x 5.1m to the T2 Thermal plant at Aboadze near Takoradi.
The height of the cases meant that detailed planning was required, both for the discharge operation from the vessel and for the onward transport from Takoradi port to site. Thanks to OMA’s dedicated and experienced team, the boxes were delivered on time and without major hitches.
OMA organised the delivery on behalf of Dongbang Transport Logistics Co. who are working with Kepco E&C.
