Marine Industry | SKF South Africa | Africa Bearings


With over 1000km of coastline and habitable marine conditions, Cape Town is a city with an abundance of marine life and incredible marine resources. That is why our marine industry can take full advantage of our natural resources as a significant part of our nation’s development, but at the same time also ensure that these resources are well managed by avoiding exploitation.

At Africa Bearings, we are proud to be a part of the supply chain that provides parts and equipment to the trades that are related to our ocean. Here are some examples of how we contribute to the Cape Town marine sector:

Fishing Industry

Associated with the marine species diversity is the thriving fishing industry. We possess plenty of animal species in our waters due to the fact of the Indian and Atlantic Ocean meeting at the Southern Most Tip of Africa and fishing provides the livelihood for thousands of Cape Town families. There are also numerous foreign fishing boats that stop in our harbours to replenish their supply and do maintenance work on their equipment. We at Africa Bearings provide the necessary marine parts to both local as well as foreign fishing boats.


Cruise Lines

Cape Town is no doubt one of the most beautiful cities in the world, and this is greatly in relation to the magnitude of our coastline with magnificent views. We are often visited by international cruise ships that dock at our harbours and have local lines that travel along the coast. To ensure the safety of the large amounts of passengers, these ships will need top-notch parts and equipment from reliable suppliers such as Africa Bearings.

We also have a lot of oil supply vessels and rigs that come into our harbour for repairs and refurbishment.

Small Scale Recreation

At a local and more relatable level, one of the biggest markets for marine machinery is small scale boats. These include speed boats, yachts, and sailboats that are privately owned by Cape Townians. Some of these boats are being used to run marine, coastal and harbour tours and can provide livelihoods for local business owners. These boats need constant maintenance during off-peak season as well as upkeep while in operation. Our reliable service and products ensure that they are safe and accident-free.

Mining and Marine Manufacturing

At an industrial level, sectors such as deep sea mining and manufacturing require vast amounts of highly specialised equipment and parts to accomplish certain tasks. The intricate engineering will only be as good as the reliability of the machine components. Africa Bearings aims for nothing lower than reliable and top quality equipment to ensure this.

Marine Manufacturing

Environmental Protection

Due to the constantly active marine activity, it is important for the government as well as private environmental protection entities to monitor the natural ecosystems along our coast to ensure that it stays protected and in good shape. This of course also involves the necessity for specialised equipment for specialised machines as well as boats that need constant maintenance.

At Africa Bearings, we take pride in providing the most reliable and top quality products that are applicable to all the above-mentioned industries.
