FTC Ghana solar installation


Dutch & Company, a leading solar energy firm, has achieved a significant milestone by installing and commissioning a rooftop solar system at the cold-room facility operated by The Fruit Terminal Company (FTC) in Tema Harbour, Ghana

The Ghana based firm, popularly known as Dutch & Co entered into partnership with The Fruit Terminal Company (FTC) by signing an EPC agreement for the engineering, procurement and construction of a 200 kWp Grid-Tie Solar PV system to provide green energy to the cold-room facility in Tema Harbour in Ghana.

By using technical solutions of the highest grade and protection to prevent corrosion and saline effects of the near ocean water, the solar installation is expected to generate 285 MWh of green, stable and clean electricity in its first year of operation, and in excess of 6,710 MWh during its lifetime, which reduces the carbon dioxide footprints of FTC’s warehouse by 2,885 tons.

The gradual transition into solar energy use by Golden Exotics Limited (GEL) and Compagnie Fruitière Groupe affiliated companies such as FTC, is a demonstration of the Group’s commitment towards the reduction of its greenhouse emissions by 42% by 2030.

On 25th April, 2024 the solar installation was formally inaugurated by Mr. Benedict Riche, Managing Director of Golden Exotics Limited in Ghana, and Mr. Frederic Fabre of Compagnie Fruitière Groupe. Mr Fabre, who was visiting Ghana for GEL’s 20th Anniversary Climax Event, was delighted to represent the Group’s shareholders during the inauguration.

Managing Director of Golden Exotics, Mr Benedict Riche said, “Golden Exotics and Companie Fruitiere Groupe are delighted to take this significant step in reducing our environmental impact and carbon footprint. In this era of global warming, we aim to demonstrate that practical environmental solutions are achievable. The collaboration with Dutch & Co will extend beyond this initiative, focusing on other aspects of our fruit supply chain to provide customers with products that have a lower carbon footprint and minimal chemical inputs.”
