AEGIR-Marine expands in Africa

A new service company was established in Walvis Bay, Namibia. The African-Dutch joint venture between African Marine Propulsion (AMP) and AEGIR-Marine, African AEGIR Marine Propulsion LTD (AAMP) will focus entirely on stern tube seal service, the maintenance & repair of propellers and the sales and distribution of spares for these products.

Ruud Muis, Director AEGIR, comments: “West-Africa offers great opportunities. There are many ship movements and the offshore industry is significant. Major internationals have ships in this area. However, there is hardly any infrastructure or trained labour available”. Until now, ship owners had to go to Southern Europe or the Canaries for quality repairs. As per AEGIS Marine, Walvis Bay is growing strong as a geographically perfect alternative for Europe or South Africa.
 
AAMP is housed in Walvis Bay, Namibia. The office and workshop are located close to a floating dock and slipway. The lot also offers engineering facilities.

For local repairs, AAMP will service any assistance with propulsion systems. As for repairs in other regions, as well as spare parts AAMP will serve all ship owners in West-Africa, south of the Sahara. For South and East Africa, AEGIR-Marine will partner with AMP in Cape Town, South Africa. 

The Dutch specialist in the field of shaft seals and bearings AEGIR-Marine BV expands in Africa.
