The two companies will join their complementary skills and naval assets to provide turnkey solutions to companies in this sector, Inyanga said.

Inyanga Maritime, which opened a subsidy in France earlier this year, recently acquired a DP2 multi-purpose vessel, Inyanga Entsha. The 58-metre-long vessel will feature a 75-tonne heave-compensated A-frame and a 15-tonne deck/subsea crane.

Said to fill the gap between inshore multicats and deep-sea offshore construction vessels, Inyanga Entsha will be used for marine energy and fixed and floating wind energy markets in Europe.

SAAS is a marine and subsea services provider with several work and survey vessels, observation class remotely operated vehicles (ROVs), drones, and instruments. Over the last few years, the company carried out multiple operations for tidal, wave and wind energy sectors.

“SAAS and Inyanga Maritime are both result-driven companies, with strong focus on innovation and blue growth. SAAS operates vessels dedicated to sea survey, marine energies and sea trials”, said Hervé Allaire, CEO of SAAS.

“Inyanga’s impressive track record proved its ability to find a solution to every new challenge. It was thus obvious to join our forces to offer our clients turnkey innovative and efficient solutions”.
