Harren Group has become the latest shipowner to see the potential in Africa.

The Bremen-based company has opened an office in Nigeria, its first office on the continent.

Harren Nigeria in Lagos is led by former director business development and operations (MEA) at SAL Heavy Lift and now managing director Paul Okpurughre.

“The new office represents the entire Harren Group and serves as a basis for further business development in West Africa,” said Okpurughre.
