Vivo Energy Namibia, the local licensee for Shell, yesterday celebrated the completion of their move into their towering new headquarters, aptly named “Vivo House”, in the Capital’s Klein Windhoek suburb.

The state-of-the-art mixed-use property will serve as the corporate headquarters for both Vivo Energy Namibia and the Hangala Group (Pty) Ltd.

Hangala Properties, a vehicle for property development for Hangala Group, is Vivo Energy’s 50-50 joint-venture partner in Havi Properties (Pty) Ltd.

Havi Properties (Pty) Ltd. was incorporated in 2016, with the intent of developing a sectional scheme comprising of office units for commercial use and residential units, with their latest Vivo House development their crowning achievement, together.

“It is a very exciting time for all of us here at Vivo Energy Namibia. Today is not the opening of Vivo House, but, rather a celebration to welcome the VEN team to our new home,” said Vivo Energy Namibia Managing Director, Edward Walugembe.

“It has been 10 years since we started operating as Vivo Energy Namibia, and this new building is a landmark to celebrate the progress we’ve made over the last decade, as well as a testament of our commitment to long term, sustainable growth and investment in Namibia and with the Namibian people,” he added.

Respecting one’s neighbours

Dr. Leake Hangala, Chairman/Founder at Hangala Investment Holdings Pty Ltd, also heralded the occasion as a major milestone for the Havi Properties (Pty) Ltd. joint venture.

“At the Hangala Group, our motto is “opportunity in partnership”. That is why it is a very proud moment for us to join up with Vivo Energy Namibia, to among others, develop a building such as this, especially during such a difficult time in our country’s economy.”

“For myself and, I think for all of you fellow Namibians, this is a great testimony of Vivo Energy’s belief in the Namibian economy, and it is indeed a privilege to welcome our colleagues from Vivo Energy Namibia to Vivo House,” Dr. Hangala added.

Both representatives expressed their appreciation to all the stakeholders whose input helped the Vivo House development reach fruition, including Hangala Properties (Pty) Ltd., who managed the project’s construction since the ground-breaking in 2018.

“We also would like to thank the team and management of Shell East End in Klein Windhoek, for accommodating us during all the construction works, and never letting these activities disrupt them in the commitment to serve their customers, to the best degree,” Walugembe noted before concluding with a warm: “Welcome home, Vivo Energy Namibia!”
