Molinari Rail modernizes railway line in Ghana

4. May 2022 - Molinari Rail announces its involvement in 100 new rail kilometers in Ghana. Our project-experienced rolling stock experts are playing a central role in the modernization and additional expansion of an important railway line in Ghana.

In this major project, supported by the Swedish Export Credit Agency EKN within the framework of a reinsurance with the Swiss Export Risk Insurance SERV, Molinari Rail not only bundles and coordinates the subcontractors, but also designs and implements all railroad engineering systems. The project represents the first export loan in Africa to comply with green and social loan principles and sustainability bond guidelines.

Only 13 percent of Ghana’s 950 km colonial-era railroad network is in operation today, slowing the West African country’s export industry. The Ghana Western Railway Line Project is rehabilitating its rail infrastructure and making operations safer and faster. The rail line from the town of Huni Valley to the port of Takoradi in the south of the country is of central importance for the transport of agricultural products and minerals.

In the future, connections for passenger transport will also be included. The project was selected by Global Trade Review as one of the winners among the “GTR Best Deals 2022”.
