The company is a joint venture between Sonangol (Angolan National Oil Company), Saipem and two other national companies, Casoy and Sagemetal Kwanda’s mission is to solve the customer’s logistics and port challenges by providing integrated supply chain logistic services.

Soyo’s hub strategic location
Geographically located in a strategic position, nearby Angola’s most productive offshore blocks, Kwanda is crucial for the Angolan hydrocarbon sector, namely for the major operators and oil field services providers. In addition, the National Oil Company has announced that ten new blocks will be auctioned soon in Soyo area, which means that operations are expected to ramp up quickly in the near future.
