Infrastructure support

We provided over £140 million of financing to support UK exports to Ghana and help secure export opportunities for UK companies on major national infrastructure projects across the country.

This infrastructure support has helped to secure export opportunities for UK companies in healthcare, sanitation and transport across the country.

The support that we’ve provided in Ghana includes a direct loan of £27 million to the Ghanaian government to help UK-based Aqua Africa provide clean drinking water for 280,000 people across the country. Aqua Africa deploys solar powered technology to deliver 5 litres of water a day for less than a quarter of a penny.

Further financing supported a project led by engineering companies Ellipse and Tyllium to provide a 285 bed hospital.

UKEF’s support is allowing EPC companies like ours to take full advantage of the new trading opportunities created by the rise of developing economies like Ghana. Their flexible finance was at the core of our successful bid.
