Ahead of the Ghana day at the ongoing Offshore Technology Conference, the Petroleum Commission delegation led by its Board Chairman and CEO toured the Engineering workshop and premises of Trendsetter Engineering to familiarise themselves with the operations of the company.
Vice President of Projects at Trendsetters, Tony Matson showed the team round their Subsea Distribution Assembling plant where major engineering equipment used in the upstream petroleum sector were on display. He walked the team through some features of the various equipment and its specialised support structures.
Vine Ghana limited is the JV partner to Trendsetters. The Managing Director of Trendsetters JVG, Mr. Ransford Boateng who was appreciative of the tour said they will be motivated to do more in enhancing their operations in Ghana.
