Rolls-Royce Opens Marine Service Center In Africa
Rolls-Royce has opened its Marine Service Center in Walvis Bay, Namibia, Africa. The facility, operated in part with Elgin Brown & Hamer (EBH) Namibia, will serve companies operating off the west coast of Africa. It will be located within EBH’s shipyard in the Port of Walvis Bay.
Rolls-Royce will create 14 jobs at the facility, whose employees will be able to repair and overhaul the full range of Rolls-Royce thrusters and propellers, diesel and gas engines and steering gear. Engineers from Walvis Bay will also handle servicing and repairs on board vessels throughout the region, Rolls-Royce said.
Rolls-Royce has opened seven Marine Service Centers in the last two years, with its global network consisting of facilities in 34 countries. The company has also completed an expansion of its service center in Rotterdam, Holland, and is currently constructing new facilities in Hamburg, Germany, and Gdynia, Poland, both of which are set to open this summer.
