A leading South African railway and ports company, Transnet International Holdings has indicated its preparedness to imbue life into Ghana’s railway network.

The multi-billion-dollar company which has an agreement with Ghana’s Railway Compnay Limited noted that their core objective is to partner the Ghana Railway Company Limited to “revitalize, operate and manage” the rail network system in Ghana.

Speaking to <b>Peacefmonline.com</b>, the Programme’s Director of Transnet International Holdings, Mr Wilson Mogoba noted that, the agreement signed will “see the Western Line and some part of the Eastern line ( Accra - Nsawam) being returned to service”.

He also assured that the deal “will bring on board investments, rolling stock, operations, skills development to ensure that the rail network in Ghana begins to function and serve the economy of Ghana.”

Mogoba also expressed optimism that the partnership between South Africa and Ghana will create opportunities.

“I see a greater economic collaboration between South Africa and Ghana, I see the greater exchange of technology, I see as creating the platform for many businesses between South Africa and Ghana” he said.

Transnet is the backbone of South Africa’s world class railway and logistics industry​. The company has a number of divisions such as Transnet Engineering, Transnet Port Authority, Transnet Pipelines etc.

Transnet Engineering focused businesses in manufacture, upgrading conversion, repair and maintenance of railway rolling stock, as well as spares and associated transport equipment.

Through its seven well equipped, ISO certified factories and workforce of 14 500 qualified personnel, Transnet Engineering extends its railway customer portfolio to Africa and the world.

Their readiness to revamp Ghana’s rail network, according to their local partners, Adasa Keteke Company Limited, will signify a new dawn of hope for the country’s ailing railway operations.

Kojo Quainoo who is the Chief Executive Officer of Adasa Keteke said there would be a powerful railway ecosystem which will lead to unlocking greater opportunities for Ghanaians.
