Kanoo Africa gets nominated to provide logistics, shore support for Weddell Sea Project


Kanoo Africa, a segment of Kanoo Shipping—a division of The Kanoo Group and Yusuf bin Ahmed Kanoo—has been nominated to provide logistics and shore support for the Weddell Sea Project.

The Weddell Sea Project is an expedition that aims to locate ‘Endurance’, a general cargo that was built in 2012 and is sailing under the flag of Antigua Barbuda. Kanoo Africa was chosen for this project as it has been providing support in Cape Town for the mobilization of the vessel SA Agulhas II, which has been chartered for this year’s expedition to Antarctica.


The expedition party will depart from Cape Town in February 2022, and shall return to the city in March this year. For this specific project, Kanoo Africa will be responsible for clearing and transporting specialized equipment and cargo that will be loaded onto the SA Agulhas II; bunkering and providing fuel supplies; husbandry services such as people movement, hotel bookings, COVID-19 screening and testing for the team; and providing local procurement and shore support.
