Metocean Services International (MSI) has established a new company based in Maputo, Mozambique.
Sondamar LDA, the third company in the MSI stable, has been officially registered in Mozambique to support clients in the oil and gas, port and harbour development and coastal engineering industries. The name “Sondamar” directly translates to “Survey of the Sea” and reflects the values and experience of its parent company, MSI noted.
MSI has a track record in Mozambique spanning over 10 years, with the long term deployment of its personnel and the training of Mozambican nationals in the field of Oceanography.
Most recently MSI has been working on a metocean measurement project in Mozambique’s Rovuma Basin. The programme comprises sixteen shallow and nine deep moorings (in water depths ranging from approximately 6m to 2,000m), an offshore weather station, onshore weather station and shore-based tide gauge.
MSI is also responsible for operating and servicing of the equipment for the entire duration of the project.
