ICTSI Nigerian subsidiary provides sustainable water systems to Ogu community

Onne Multipurpose Terminal (OMT), International Container Terminal Services, Inc. (ICTSI)’s Nigerian subsidiary, has turned over three solar-powered water systems to the Ogu community.

These water systems were built to meet the Ogu community’s urgent demand for clean water, a crucial resource that many communities in the Niger Delta area lack.

“This achievement fills us with great joy and further inspires us to do our part in supporting our host communities.”

Ogu community elders led by Chief Adokiye, Ogu Council of Chiefs Chairman, thanked OMT for providing the community with sustainable access to clean water.

The community vowed to actively maintain the water systems to ensure their durability, highlighting the project’s influence on their lives.

The water system project is reportedly one of numerous social responsibility efforts for the ICTSI Group’s host communities.

The firm presently runs 32 terminals across the world, four of which are in Africa.

According to ICTSI, it is actively seeking to extend its footprint across the continent through possibilities along the Durban and Gauteng container corridors, as well as other areas in West and South Africa.

This month, OMT achieved a safety milestone after clocking in two million man-hours with zero lost time injury (LTI).
