Angola to send naval vessels to Namibia for maintenance

13 November 2019

The Angolan Navy is to send two naval vessels to Namibia's Walvis Bay for dry dock maintenance and support.

Namibian company Namdock will perform undisclosed work on the vessels in a contract that has been under negotiation since 2017. The company is hoping to extend the services contract with Angola into 2020 and perform maintenance on other naval vessels.

Namdock has been increasing its work with the Angolan government, performing maintenance on vessels operated by the Angolan Ministry of Fisheries. The company has also been pursuing work with the Namibian Navy (NN). The NN was created in 2004 following the commissioning of the Namibian Defence Force's maritime wing into a naval force.
