The purpose of the visit was to learn more about the work scopes and future plans of Genesis SG. As the UK’s head of trade in Ghana, Courtney is actively involved in supporting and developing UK businesses operating in the country. He was joined by Selorm Kofi Dake, a trade advisor at Ghana’s British High Commission.

Genesis SG is a valve engineering company serving Ghana’s energy and industrial markets. They discussed current and potential markets and looked at plans for a new workshop facility.

Business Development Director Douglas Fulton and Senior Valve Technician Zahid Sadmaliyev from Genesis SG coordinated the visit and explained the nature of the advanced technical services provided by Genesis SG.

The business is strategically aligned with the critical needs of Ghana’s energy markets. It provides specialist valve management and repair services, leveraging the international experience and technical expertise of Severn, combined with the local infrastructure and operations of Genesis.

“It was great to see the partnership in action when we visited the facility in Takoradi,” said Courtney. “This is a good model for UK companies seeking to do business in Ghana. We look forward to visiting the facility again once the expansion project has been completed,” he added.

“Since Genesis SG was established in January 2018 it’s made impressive progress. Our valve services enable local operators to unlock better performance and reliability. It was a pleasure to show Peter and Selorm around the facility and they shared valuable advice about trade in Ghana,” Douglas Fulton concluded.
