Taylor Smith Shipyard teams up with Nouum Engineering

South African Nouum Engineering, a provider of diesel engine services for marine, power, locomotives, and generators globally, and Mauritius-based ship repair and conversion yard Taylor Smith Shipyard have signed a cooperation agreement, expanding both companies’ commercial and operational scopes.

Willy van Niekerk, General Manager of TSS comments that: “This cooperation provides Taylor Smith Shipyard with the opportunity to accept more and significantly larger engine overhaul jobs and other types of engineering work in the region, and even globally. With Nouum we have found a strong and highly experienced partner to attain the growth that we envision in the coming years.”

Nouum Engineering looks to expand in Sub-Saharan Africa

As part of the agreement, Nouum Engineering will focus on the repair and maintenance of marine engines and related equipment, such as turbochargers and automation systems, a growth market for Taylor Smith Shipyards. Nouum will provide qualified personnel (incl. all appropriate certifications) who have significant experience in this field. In addition, the company will assist TSS with its engineering scope.

Tom Martin, CEO at Nouum, says: “We’ve already worked with Taylor Smith Shipyard for a long time. It’s great to be able to take this next step together. Through this partnership service more clients faster and better. Our main focus is the Sub-Saharan African market and the Indian Ocean, but we’ll also cooperate globally.”

At present, Nouum has a commercial presence and offices in Cape Town, Durban, Kenya, Namibia, Madagascar, Mauritius, Reunion and Nigeria and operates globally, repairing, rebuilding and maintaining engines either in or at their fully equipped African facilities or anywhere in the world.

Recently, Taylor Smith Shipyard has expanded its capabilities, technically, regionally and commercially, to serve a larger market and offer a wider range of services to its customers. The yard has set up a new sales, after-sales service and training team available to further support clients and to meet their needs. Engine overhaul work with a focus on minimising downtime is especially growing, as is the mobile Harbour & Voyage Repair team.
