Walvis Bay - Your preferred port of call along the West Coast of Africa
Our shipyard “Namdock” has resumed full operations with effect from Tuesday 5 May 2020, in accordance with the inception of stage 2 of the lockdown, which has seen the partial easing of restrictive measures thanks to the recent flattening of the infection curve. Namdock’s repair and maintenance yard activities are therefore fully operational. All facilities and staff members are adhering to the prescribed COVID-19 safety and sanitisation regulations, including working in shifts and observing strict social distancing, regular temperature readings, handwashing, and wearing of face masks, gloves and other prescribed personal protective equipment (PPE).
