Infrastructure Development

Helping the continent achieve growth.


Our Marine Services provides professional project management personnel to supervise the full scope of offshore operations. The company has spent many years designing, developing and implementing offshore procedures for a vast range of offshore operations.

What differentiates our Marine team is our specialist knowledge of the market. Our personnel and associates have worked all over the world for some of the world’s leading companies requiring these services. Operational efficiency and customer service are the rules with which we work by, and one which allows our ship owners to choose us when contemplating employing their vessel in West Africa.

Vessel Supply – Our Marine Services Activity has developed expertise in offshore installation and vessel supply. Our fleet comprises of FSVs (Fast Intervention Support Vessels), PSVs (Platform Supply Vessels), CSVs (Construction Support Vessels) and SSVs (Seismic Support Vessel). We are able to transport equipment and special products to platforms. Our PSVs provide a huge deck area that enables all types of equipment to be transported. They also have sizeable storage capacity for fuel oil, base oil, freshwater, water for industrial purposes, methanol and a host of other general service requirement.

Vessel Charter – We have established access to fleets of proven vessels well known for their fuel-efficiency and versatility. Our fleet have proven themselves more than a dozen times to date, providing fast and reliable access. With optimal hydrodynamics and reduced weight the vessels use significantly less fuel than their aluminum counterparts and hence have a much lower carbon footprint.

Tanker loading / Discharging Superintendents: This is an operation where our operations superintendents are particularly in demand. Large tanker owners and bulk shippers suffer from the lack of senior and experienced officers on board sailing cargos. Research has shown that the largest percentage of all accidents and costly mistakes are made during the periods of loading and the periods before, during and aſter discharging ports.

We travel to tankers and bulk carriers before arrival at load ports. Our superintendents receive their confidential briefings directly from the owners. They join the vessel and immediately calculate the cargo requirements, vessels stress, trim, draft and cargo lifting capacity. They are then in constant contact with owners and competently converse and co-operate with relevant terminal superintendents.

They supervise the discharge of clean ballast, tank stripping, line stripping and all ballast discharge. They check all tanks and holds with the cargo inspection company and they supervise the full loading operation, after which a full set of cargo documentation is produced.

They will produce a full report and recommendations for owners and pre-plan the discharge of the cargo. Usually the same superintendent will attend the vessel at discharge port where again a similar exercise takes place but on this occasion the discharge, crude oil washing, tank stripping, line stripping, inert gas operation and time sheets are made for a discharging operation.

The superintendent produces a full set of cargo discharge documents including time sheets.
