Bosch Rexroth distributor opens in Angola

The Ocean Atlantic team.

Ocean Atlantic has been appointed the Hytec Services Africa distributor in Angola. Effective 1 August 2020, Ocean Atlantic will distribute Hytec South Africa’s entire scope of products, services and technologies.

Industries that will be serviced include mining, general industry and oil & gas, with the latter offering new opportunities for Hytec’s products and services. Some of these include providing its offering to floating platform storage and offloading (FPSO) vessels; tension leg platforms; fixed structure production platforms; drill ships; and jack-up rigs.

“This is an exciting new focus area of business for Hytec, and Ocean Atlantic has the required skills and experience to successfully introduce us to this industry,” says Petrus Viljoen, African Development Manager, Hytec Services Africa (HSA).

Ocean Atlantic specialises in workshop services (choke valve refurbishment and integrity checking); inspection services; asset integrity management; and hydraulic services, which include oil condition monitoring, filtration, varnish treatment, water removal and cargo pump refurbishment.

In considering Ocean Atlantic as a Hytec distributor, various aspects were taken into consideration. Among them are the company’s technical expertise and experience in the oil & gas industry; their in-country workshop availability with the potential to conduct minor repairs (including stripping and assessing for repair); and their hose and fittings manufacture and supply capabilities.

Ocean Atlantic was awarded Hytec distribution rights for one year, until in August 2021, with the possibility of a new contract coming into effect thereafter.
