Austal announced an expansion of its European service presence with the establishment of a maintenance hub on the Strait of Gibraltar. Based in Southern Spain and Northern Morocco, the new operations will support the extensive fleet of Austal and non-Austal high speed craft currently operating on the Strait of Gibraltar. Austal Managing Director Bob Browning said “This strategic move positions Austal near a region with high demand for vessel maintenance and management services.”
   
The new operations will support the ports of Algeciras and Tarifa in Spain, and Tanger Ville and Tanger Med in Morocco, and will be staffed by members of Austal’s existing maintenance team as well as local personnel.

The announcement follows last month’s contract for the maintenance of seven large high speed craft with Oman’s National Ferries Company. Austal recently established service hubs in Egypt and Oman, with a regional office in the United Arab Emirates to open in coming months.
