aboutOur Company

Hamilton & Co. (part of Transcoma Shipping) was established in the Canary Islands in 1837 by the Scotsman Lewis Hamilton. The company’s main activity has been and still is that of shipping agent and stevedoring. Throughout the years, we have gained a reputation for efficiency and professionalism. This is demonstrated by the long list of companies that we represent in the Canaries.

Since late last century, as the Oil and Gas business grew in West Africa and the port of Las Palmas became a major hub for this activity, Hamilton & Co. (part of Transcoma Shipping) have specialized in handling all types of vessels related to this business. Nowadays, we represent a large number of ship-owners as well as drilling companies involved in this trade.

We were the first in the Canaries to organize the docking of a semi-submersible drilling rig; this project, which was started in October 2000, lasted for 362 days. Since then, we have handled a minimum of one major project per year. As a result of the continued experience in this field, our company’s staff is well able to provide 24/7 service to any type of vessel.
