    Our history



    OCTOMAR - Serviços Marítimos, Lda is an Angolan company, which was initially established in 1997 through a joint venture between Marsub – Trabalhos Submarinos, Lda, an Angolan private company, and Octo Marine Limited, a company at the time owned by Murray & Roberts and Safmarine, with the specific intent of providing diving services and support services to offshore tanker terminal operations.


    After the acquisition of Octo Marine by Smit, a Rotterdam based company, Smit acquired a share in OCTOMAR in 2002, which contributed to the expansion of OCTOMAR´s client base with the provision of additional services such as towage, offshore support vessels, marine projects and heavy lift.


    OCTOMAR´s Angolan shareholders decided to acquire Smit´s share in OCTOMAR in 2012, becoming an Angolan wholly owned and independent company. OCTOMAR´s Angolan shareholders invested in the re-structure of the company, the acquisition of new IMCA diving systems, a 2000 m2 facility at Sonils base in Luanda and the obtaining of ISO 9001:2015 accreditation for OCTOMAR.


    Octomar believes that one of the main attributes it possesses is its employees. The company sees its Human Resources as a means to achieve a competitive advantage in such a dynamic and complex industry. Hence, Octomar´s success is sustained by the diversity of its employee´s from Angola, South Africa, Holand, Portugal, Lithuania, which ultimately contributes to an engaging and open minded culture within the company, supporting its worker´s expertise and enjoyable working environment. By the great experience and academic formation that top managers, divers and administrative workers possess, with more than 30 years of experience in the field, is a key factor for the company prosperity.
