The Ghana Navy and TeamWorks Power Boats, a local Ghanaian Boat Building Company has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on Thursday, 22 August 2021 at the Naval Headquarters in Burma Camp.
The MoU was for the two institutions to build a sea craft (Fibre Reinforce Plastic Boat) for the Ghana Navy as part of efforts to empower local engineering companies.
The Chief of the Naval Staff (CNS), Rear Admiral Issah Adam Yakubu in his remarks said, the move would not only permit local industries but limit the importation of boats and save the country the huge cost incurred on imports.
He added that, TeamWorks Power Boats Company as part of the MoU would offer Ghana Navy its facility for training purposes. Rear Admiral Yakubu was hopeful the technical-know-how and the guidelines from the Company would solve some of the challenges the Ghana Navy faces in maintaining their sea boats.
The Executive Chairman of TeamWorks Power Boats Company, Mr Nicholas Akpebu expressed his appreciation to Ghana Navy for the opportunity given them to showcase their project to the Nation and assured the CNS that the management of the Company would fulfil its part of the agreement.
Rear Admiral Issa Yakubu signed the MoU on behalf of the Ghana Navy whilst Mr Nicholas Akpeku signed for TeamWorks Power Boats Company.
