Genesis SG, a partnership between Genesis Oil & Gas Services  and  Severn Valve Solutions (a Severn Glocon Group company), recently hosted Peter Courtney from the UK Department of International Trade at the Genesis SG service base in Takoradi, Ghana.

The purpose of the visit was to learn more about Genesis SG’s workscopes and future plans. As the UK’s Head of Trade in Ghana, Courtney is actively involved in the support and development of UK businesses operating in the country. He was joined by Selorm Kofi Dake, a Trade Advisor at the British High Commission in Ghana.

Genesis SG is a valve engineering company serving energy and industrial markets in Ghana. The visitors were given a tour of the workshops and met key members of the team. They discussed current and potential markets and looked at plans for a new workshop facility.

Douglas Fulton (Business Development Director) and Zahid Sadmaliyev (Senior Valve Technician) from Genesis SG coordinated the visit and explained the nature of the advanced technical services Genesis SG provides. The business is strategically aligned with the critical needs of Ghana’s energy markets. It provides specialist valve management and repair services locally, leveraging the international experience and technical expertise of Severn, combined with the local infrastructure and operations of Genesis.

“It was great to see partnership in action when we visited the facility in Takoradi,” says 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.” 

Fulton adds: “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.”
