ShipTek’s ‘Best Repair Yard’ Award Goes to Drydocks World (Dubai)
Drydocks World, one of the most renowned and prolific maritime service providers operating from the Middle East, received the Best Repair Yard Award at the 6th Marine BizTV International Maritime Awards organized in conjunction with ShipTek 2013.
The shipyard has done exemplary work, by diversifying from its traditional domain of ship repair, and offering its services to the growing oil, gas and energy sectors. The award was received on behalf of the company by Mr. Ali bin Towaih, Vice President, Commercial & Business Development.
The number of significant and high-value repairs carried out during 2012 has increased several-fold over the previous years and the industry has widely accepted the shipyard’s capabilities at delivering high quality products on time and in a cost effective manner. In 2012 the yard repaired and refurbished 11 rigs and the numbers are expected to progressively increase into 2013 and beyond.
H.E. Khamis Juma Buamim, Chairman of Drydocks World and Maritime World said, “We are delighted to have received this Award primarily due to the excellent work that we have carried out on vessels and offshore rigs. The offshore sector is one area which we see as extremely promising and we are raising our knowledge and competency base to meet and exceed the requirements of the offshore oil and gas sector. We have established dedicated, highly skilled and experienced teams to maximize our customer orientation. We are proud to say that global players have continually placed their faith in our services and we have moved ahead with conviction in this field.
