Gulf of Guinea
Why Us?

It is estimated that damages tied with the consequences of Piracy and Terrorism may cost shipping companies millions of dollars each year, while causing critical harm to the company's image and inflicting physical and psychological damage to the employees and their families.

Acting under legal agreements with our agents and representatives in Nigeria areas we totally secure your ship and your crew from any threat or violence.

We deliver a defensible and protective solution by providing armed governmental teams on board at area in order we supervise and prepare the vessel and its crew to navigate the most dangerous risk areas within the waters of Nigeria.

In full cooperation with the armed teams on board our bridge security liaison officer assists with the procurement of materials and the equipment required, installing the security measures and provides the risk assessments to re-enforce existing defensive measures.

We provide design consultation and installation guidance of permanent anti-piracy measures on any new vessel during the build phase, being at the same time fully compliance with maritime safety and security codes

We always have a Chief Security Officer (CSO) and a legal advisor available around the clock all year to support the operational teams and maritime law matters.

How big a threat is this? 
Nigerian Piracy in the Gulf of Guinea a Major Risk for Merchant Shipping!

The Gulf of Guinea continues to be one of the most dangerous bodies of water in the world for merchant shipping.

Armed and dangerous pirate gangs from the Niger Delta have been responsible for attacking commercial vessels throughout the wider region, conducting armed robberies, stealing oil and abducting crew for ransom.
