ndia with its vast coast line, rivers, water bodies and inland waterways spread across its landscape, has always inspired maritime entrepreneurs to venture and explore the potential of these natural resources. Envisaging this vision, Yojaka Marine Products Pvt. Ltd., or ‘Yojaka’ as is known among its clientele was formed in the year 1998. Their primary objective then was providing engineering services to the growing marine industry.
In 1999, Yojaka forayed in to its first marine operation by entering in to an agreement with New Mangalore Port Trust (NMPT) for the deployment and operation of the patrol boat in their territorial waters. This agreement was also a milestone, as it was among the first private and government joint security operations in Indian ports. With this as a stepping stone, Yojaka bagged its next prestigious projects with Mangalore Refinery & Petrochemicals Limited (MRPL) a subsidiary of ONGC, for the work of operation and maintenance of their Virtual Jetty at NMPT. Yojaka successfully executed this project for a period of three years by handling the vessels and managing the transfer of petroleum based products to and from the refinery through floating hoses, much to the admiration of MRPL and NMPT.
Motivated by challenges and constantly upgrading with time, technology and resources, Yojaka gradually expanded in to new horizons of marine, mechanical, offshore and civil engineering. In the year 2006, with a clear vision of expansion and global growth, Yojaka was rechristened as Yojaka (India) Private Limited.
Their registered office is located in the coastal city of Mangalore, cradled in the southern state of Karnataka, India. They function and operate throughout India with strategically located branch offices at Mumbai (Maharashtra), Surat (Gujarat), Cochin (Kerala) and Chennai (Tamil Nadu).
They also have a fully owned subsidiary company located in free trade zone of Ras Al Khaimah, UAE for venturing in to the Middle East & African markets.
Yojaka with its own fleet of cutter suction dredgers assisted by a professionally experienced project execution team has successfully completed many dredging projects for various ports dotting the Indian Coast. Yojaka today, is considered among the top dredging companies in India, which itself is a testimony to their commitment, hardwork and success in this field of work.
