Gulf of Guinea Risk Management


DIAPLOUS HAS BEEN ACTIVE SINCE 2016 IN THE GULF OF GUINEA (GOG). WE OFFER A VARIETY OF SERVICES RELATED TO ARMED MARITIME SECURITY AGAINST MODERN PIRACY ATTACKS.

History

Due to the security situation and attendant volatility of the African coast, particularly the West African Coast and the Gulf of Guinea, we see an increased demand for armed security for oil tankers and other carriers calling on ports in the region.

Diaplous Ship Management specializes in vessel management providing MRM services, notably in the GoG.

In March 2022, DIAPLOUS entered into a partnership with ALKANES ENERGY SERVICES LTD, an accredited vessel support services provider that holds an NSCDC License as well as an MoU with the Nigerian Navy. This is a result of intensive search for reliable partners, hard work and constant physical presence in Nigeria.

Our insurance policies are underwritten by Lloyd’s and we are also chamber members of BIMCO, SCEG and Cyprus Shipping Chamber & approved by top pools, oil majors & blue-chip charterers.
