African maritime builder’s ship comes in

Times have changed and will continue to change for vessel owners and operators. The need to be cognisant of costs, safety, the environment and probably a whole host of additional factors that are waiting to influence maritime operations not just in Africa, but globally means that shipbuilders need to aim to stay apace with developments.

DAFF research and patrol vessel operations under new management

South African shipbuilding and maritime solutions company Nautic South Africa has confirmed it will transfer the operation of the six Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (DAFF) research and patrol vessels currently under its management to the South African Maritime Safety Authority (SAMSA’s) Special Marine Projects Division at the end of October 2014. SAMSA’s current mandate is to ensure safety of life and property at sea, prevent and combat pollution from ships in the marine environment, and to promote the Republic’s maritime interests.
