Tschudi expands in West AfricaCompany News // October 25, 2016
Tschudi Group has established Tschudi Angola-Navega ao LDA, a new company that will expand its offshore activities in West Africa.
The indigenous Angolan company emerges from Tschudi's successful quest for a local partner with an understanding of the industry and will enable Tschudi to continue to provide high quality services to the West African oil and energy sector.
Tschudi Offshore & Towage has an established track record of operating the group's anchor handlers offshore Angola and of port development with a dredging support vessel.
"A local presence will further strengthen Tschudi's foothold in Angola giving the group a competitive advantage when tendering for projects and employing local seafarers and onshore staff," said the company. "Clients will benefit from in-depth market knowledge and know-how."
The company's Managing Director, Mark de Jonge, said: "After many years operating in Angola I'm pleased that Tschudi has found the right partner providing high added value by in-depth knowledge of local operations and procedures. We are looking forward to support offshore operations and logistics while also being able to share and transfer our experience with the local staff."
