SvitzerWijsmuller Opens Cape Town Office

Tuesday, November 22, 2005
Robert-Jan van Acker head of SvitzerWijsmuller’s global salvage activities, welcomed guests at a reception last week marking the opening of the group’s office in Cape Town. With Robert-Jan is Nick Sloane, SvitzerWijsmuller’s General Manager, Africa. SvitzerWijsmuller’s Cape Town office opened in July. Within the first month, the Cape Town team responded to four marine emergencies. Addressing representatives of SAMSA (the South African Maritime Safety Authority) and Cape Town’s maritime community, Robert-Jan van Acker said: “SvitzerWijsmuller was established in its present form in 2001. Since then, the group’s international activities have expanded steadily. South Africa – and the African region as a whole – are important markets for our salvage, towage, harbour services and offshore activities. Cape Town office is a springboard for rapid progress in the development of our African business. We now look forward to the establishment of further offices on the African Continent. The reception in Cape Town, held on Thursday November 17, was attended by over 100 guests. A reception in Durban the following day was equally well attended.
