Secure Anchorage Area (SAA)

Working in partnership with the Nigerian Navy, Ocean Marine Solutions (OMS) operates and manages the Secure Anchorage Area (SAA) off the coast of Lagos, Nigeria for vessels that require a dedicated and compliant maritime security solution. The SAA is protected by multiple armed Patrol Boats (PBs), which enforce a Maritime Exclusion Zone (MEZ) around the anchored vessels to interdict and deter potential threats.

 

  • The SAA does not involve the use of local armed guards on-board client vessels
  • The SAA is in close proximity to Lagos (less than 10NM from Lagos Fairway Buoy)
  • No need to drift far offshore whilst waiting to berth
  • Bespoke security for Ship-To-Ship (STS) operations
  • Any necessary interdiction operations take place a significant distance away from clients’ vessels due to the Secure Anchorage Area (SAA) being protected by a 2NM Maritime Exclusion Zone (MEZ) and supported by our 24/7 Manned Security Operations Centres (SOC)

 

The Secure Anchorage Area (SAA) is a secure place where vessels can anchor safely from the threat of pirate attack 24/7/365. Our Patrol Boats (PBs) significantly outmatch the capabilities of any threat witnessed in the region. Secure Anchorage Area SAA has been conducting support operations since 2012 and holds a 100% safety record.
