Company says it’s recruiting over 70 for new renewable energy project in Ghana
Takoradi Renewable Energy Ltd., (TREL) an international renewable energy trading company and its Ghana subsidiary, Africa Renewables have announced a recruitment exercise to hire more than 70 people for their new forestry and biomass production jobs in Ghana.
In a press release issued in London August 24, 2011 and copied to ghanabusinessnews.com, TREL says the local jobs will be part of Ghana’s first ever sustainable woodchip biomass extraction and exportation project and include at least three engineering and senior management positions.
TREL says it provides the European utilities industry with stable, long term supplies of quality biomass.
According to the release the company was founded in April 2010 to develop renewable energy projects in Africa, and it employs cutting edge technology and operations whilst respecting the environment and local communities. Headquartered in Belgium, with offices in London, Takoradi and Abidjan, TREL forms a link that ensures both customer and vendor fully benefit from the new opportunities provided by sustainable African biomass, it adds.
The TREL biomass extraction chain in Ghana harvests redundant trees from rubber plantations and processes them into woodchips, which are then exported to the North European energy market, it says.
The company indicates in the release that the jobs cover a variety of positions from mechanical engineers, truck drivers and finance management to skilled forestry machinery operators. The functions will cover all stages of the extraction process, from the initial felling of trees, through to the processing into woodchips, and final delivery to the port for exportation.
