A new partnership between Nautic Africa, a Paramount Group company,and Mariflex will bring international expertise in liquid cargo handling to the African market through the transfer of skills and exposure to the global market.

Seeking to develop a footprint in Africa, Mariflex’s previous collaboration with Nautic Africa and its employees has resulted in the establishment of a partnership that will see the creation of Mariflex Africa powered by Nautic Africa.

“A number of Nautic’s employees have already gained experience working in Holland at Mariflex and a formalised partnership that would provide Mariflex with a presence in the African market seemed like a logical development,” says James Fisher, CEO of Nautic Africa.

“We are able to share ideas and learn engineering skills from each other,” he says noting that the partnership will be mutually beneficial for both companies.

Mariflex Africa is already operating and services are available 24 hours a day and seven days a week. A recent successful project required the team to offload 24,000 metric tons of vegetable oils from an oil tanker.

Future plans include the establishment of a base for ship-to-ship transfers and the penetration of the combined services further into Africa. In addition specialised equipment is due to arrive from Holland to provide a more effective professional service to local clients.

As one of the world’s leading service providers in the liquid offloading sector, Mariflex’s partnership with Nautic Africa will deliver a host of professional service to the local market on a 24/7 basis. These include:

  • Ship-to-Ship transfer service
  • Liquid cargo handling
  • Cargo Survey
  • Cargo Loss Control
  • Bunker Survey
  • Barge Inerting
  • Debunkering
  • Barging services
  • Salvage Support
  • Firefighting equipment
  • Pumps and Powerpacks
  • Equipment sales, rentals and repairs

In addition technical expertise to ensure that advice, assistance and solutions for any identified challenges can be found before, during and after the transfer or transshipment of liquid bulk cargo is continuously available.
