SMEC has operated in Ghana since 1976. SMEC's first project in Ghana was a feasibility study and detailed design services for the Bui Hydroelectric Power Project. This project was implemented by the Volta River Authority and funded by the Australian International Development Assistance Bureau. A permanent office was established in Accra in 1998.
Since then, SMEC's projects have included technical assistance for the improvement of road surface standards for the Ghana Highways Authority and a road safety study and design project. SMEC also provided design and tender review, site audits and overall project management for the Aboadze-Volta Transmission Line project. The project involved construction of 215km of 330kV insulated transmission line to alleviate the substantial overloading of the existing coastal line.
With experience in the Transport, Water, Hydropower and Energy and Social Development sectors in Ghana, SMEC is providing project management services for the Transport and Agriculture Infrastructure Project. The Millennium Challenge Corporation provided a US$547 million five year grant to the Government of Ghana to help reduce rural poverty through targeted infrastructure improvements. The Millennium Development Authority (MiDA) is responsible for project implementation. SMEC is supporting MiDA in the transport and agriculture infrastructure components. The transport component includes construction of 14km of highway and rehabilitation of 945km of feeder roads and 225km of trunk roads. The agricultural infrastructure component includes construction of weirs, retention ponds and small-scale irrigations systems.
