Rigmar set to operate rig yard in Ghana

Aberdeen-based Rigmar Services has been awarded a contract for the operations, technical and commercial management of Prime Meridian Docks in Takoradi, Ghana.

Rigmar said on Wednesday that under the terms of the agreement, it will provide the management team and key technical personnel, while recruiting and developing local personnel for Prime Meridian Docks.

The company will also be responsible for delivering inspection, maintenance and repair services on board visiting ships and rigs, together with support to offshore projects throughout the region, particularly during mobilizations.

Prime Meridian Docks, West Africa’s newest maintenance and repair facility serving the shipping and offshore industries, also offers preservation, lay-up/stacking and reactivation services for ships and drilling rigs, as well as the full range of Rigmar Group services, including marine assurance, survey services and mooring equipment rental.

The company added that all activities will be supported by Rigmar’s Engineering Department, which is currently recruiting Ghanaian personnel to augment its team.

Rigmar’s CEO, Keith Nelson, said: “We are very proud to be awarded this contract, and we are confident that Prime Meridian Docks will quickly become recognized as the premier repair and maintenance facility in the region.”
