Why Tobruk?

Tobruk is a port city on Libya's eastern Meditteranean coast, near the border with Egypt. It was the site of an ancient Greek colony and, later, of a Roman fortress guarding the frontier of Cyrenaica.

Tobruk has a strong, naturally protected deep harbour with many escarpments to the south and across the Eastern half of Libya. These escarpments form a substantial physical barrier between the north and south of Libya in the Tobruk area.

The natural security provided by the old fortress and escarpments made Tobruk a strategically important Port during World War 2. The Siege of Tobruk was lifted in November 1941 when the British Eighth Army launched Operation Crusader against Erwin Rommel’s Afrika Korps.

As well as the Roman fortress and natural security provided by the escarpments giving Tobruk many Security links / synergies their was also an emotional tie as Danny’s grandad ‘Arthur Moody’ had served at Tobruk during the war.

They worked closely with me and our procurement team throughout the tender process providing a professional summary report and valuable technical insight. Once the tender was complete Tobruk SMS Ltd helped manage the project, chairing project meetings, liaising with the selected installer and conducting regular inspections of the installation work to ensure it was of a good standard and inline with the original system specification.
