Hutton’s Group has announced that its Luba Freeport Depot is now open for business.
According to the company, the new depot in Equatorial Guinea will provide a range of frozen and dry provisions and cabin stores for maritime and offshore customers in West Africa.
Luba Freeport is located on the island of Bioco allowing it to service the offshore market in Nigeria and Cameroon. “This is an exciting development for us which has taken months of careful planning to achieve and will considerably benefit our customers in West Africa and the growing offshore sector there," said Alex Taylor, managing director of Hutton’s Group.
The deport is fully customs approved and will be operated by Hutton’s Remote Site Services. HRSS’s main Area Supply Bases are in the safe and stable areas of Takoradi, Ghana and in Luba Free Port, Equatorial Guinea. Takordi services the developing offshore oil and gas port and the neighbouring port of Tema, while Luba is uniquely positioned at the deep water port facility operated by UK-firm Lonrho.
