SWATH@A&R – AN IDEA ON THE RISE

Visit company profile: Abeking & Rasmussen

For thousands of years ships have been firmly anchored in human identity. They have benefited and advanced the human kind in countless ways. And yet all along this amazing journey seafarers have been plagued by seasickness, an incessant and relentless nausea caused by the ship’s rolling and rocking. Many experts have tried to find the remedy for the persistent ailment, but always with moderate success.

That is, until Abeking & Rasmussen took up the challenge in 1999 in their usual, intense way and set new standards in on-board comfort and seakeeping with the development of the SWATH technology. Since then, the shipyard delivered almost 30 extremely accomplished SWATH@A&R (Small Waterplane Area Twin Hull) vessels that owe their success to one groundbreaking advantage – stable and calm voyage even in high and stormy seas. With the innovative technology the shipyard won accolades across the shipbuilding world and took its rightful place as the world market leader in this highly promising industry sector.

Video Ten less known facts about Kenya’s first female Marine Pilot, Elizabeth Marami

Elizabeth Marami, 28, has made history by becoming Kenya’s first female marine pilot. Born and bred in the coastal city Mombasa, Marami initially studied law at the University of Nairobi, but later changed course and went on to pursue navigation in Alexandria, Egypt for 5 years. “I always grew up knowing that I wanted to do something different, Something out of the ordinary. Being awarded a scholarship to pursue this career was God’s answered prayer…,” she says.

Her job as a marine pilot entails assisting vessels with coming into territorial waters because according to law, vessels entering a country’s territorial waters may not progress to the harbor without officials.

Elizabeth Marami is Kenya's first female marine pilot. She gave a speech during President Uhuru's commissioning of Bandari Maritime Academy.
