Our goal is to be known as an established leading maritime company within South Africa and surrounding countries. We want to become the preferred partner for the whole South African maritime industry by focusing on perception management.

We are developing our presence on the maritime market through a strategic partnership with the company Urban Soul as nominated business development partner.

In November 2014 Wärtsilä donated an 8L20 diesel engine to the Nelson Mandela Maritime University in Port Elisabeth. The idea behind this donation is to enable all new maritime graduates to be able to familiarize themselves with up to date and modern diesel engine technology.
