Inchcape Shipping Services (ISS), a maritime services provider, has obtained an offshore logistics services project in Tanzania from China Petroleum Pipeline Bureau (CPPB) and Anglo Eastern Ship Management.

The agreement  ISS will support the construction of a prestigious $3.2 billion deep water gas pipeline linking the Mnazi Bay gas field to Dar es Salaam.

The 532km gas pipeline will be a major national infrastructure project for Tanzania and will assist with the country’s planned economic growth.  It will go from Mnazi Bay, Mtwara and Songo Songo to Dar es Salaam, Tanzania’s largest city. 

The pipeline will essentially supply power stations with 3,900 MW of electricity, as well as connect commercial and domestic consumers in various major cities.

The contract includes the use of highly specialised vessels, including a unique custom built pipe, which includes a 1600 ton crane and accommodation for 230 construction workers.

TS Mahesh, general manager of ISS Tanzania, said: “We have built a reputation for effectively supporting one-of-a-kind offshore projects and were delighted to be approached by CPPB and Anglo Eastern.  Given our breadth of experience, we are able to support the project in a number of diverse areas. We look forward to working as partner on this project, which is due for completion in December 2014.”

ISS has a diversified customer base, which includes clients from the oil, cruise, container and bulk commodity sectors as well as naval, government and inter-governmental clients. Furthermore, ISS gives commercial and humanitarian logistics, transit, offshore support and other related marine services.
