Golf day to raise funds for bursaries for young maritime students

SAIMI is proud to be in partnership with SAIMENA in hosting their annual golf day that raises funds for bursaries for young maritime students.

SAIMENA is the South African Institute of Marine Engineers and Naval Architects, the only technical society in South Africa dedicated to marine engineers and naval architects. It was founded in 1975 by the former members of the overseas branches, in Cape Town and Durban, of the Institute of Marine Engineers, London.

These branches were formed in the 1950s. In 1968, the S.A. Government promulgated the Professional Engineers Act, which states that only South African Technical Societies would be recognised under this Act. Thus, in 1975, SAIMENA was founded to represent South African Marine Engineers and Naval Architects. It now has branches in Cape Town, Durban and Port Elizabeth, with a total membership of 400. Its members are fom all sections of the industry, seagoing engineers, ship repairers, shipbuilders, marine paints,classification societies, salvage associations, the S.A.Navy, naval architects, marine consultants etc. – in fact, people who live by the marine industry.
