The east coast of Africa is not graced with too many ship repair facilities for ocean going vessels.
There is an old company located near the port of Mombasa called the African Marine and General Engineering Company Limited – (AMGECO) which is a dry dock ship repair facility, and one of its kind on the East Coast of Africa.
The company has a long history in East Africa, and has gone through ownership and management changes over several decades, but the core investment is the Lloyd’s certified giant facility & dry dock which carries out all manner of ship repairs including steel & metalwork, engine servicing, mechanical, electrical, cabin/woodwork, refrigeration/air conditioning and hull-cleaning among others.
Only in Port Louis of Mauritius there are two other repair facilities with graving docks available. Chantier Naval de l'Ocean Indien has one dock of 130 m and Taylor, Smith & Co has two of 130 m and 100 m.
