Tasneef to Class Two ADNATCO Boxships

The first classification society in United Arab Emirates and in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) region Tasneef has signed an agreement to issue classification and calibration certificates for two of ADNATCO’s container ships – AL BAZM-II and AL SADR-I.

These two vessels are the first of their kind to be classified by Tasneef. In addition to conducting classification and legal surveying under the national flag and accrediting the designs by its engineering department, Tasneef will also provide technical support and consulting service for ADNATCO.

”Our agreement with ADNATCO is considered as significant step to improve our services and the classes of ships we classify, and it represents a push to establish ourselves in the classification industry nationally and regionally, just like when we used to depend on container ship rental services from other countries and today we are proud to have major fleets completely owned by national companies such as ADNATCO,” Rashed AlHebsi, CEO of Tasneef, said.

”We will provide many services for ADNATCO’s ships such as legal surveying in accordance with international and local conventions, consulting services, and training services for company employees in addition to non-periodical surveys relating to damages and technical failures.”

This partnership comes after Tasneef signed similar agreements with Esnaad, the National Drilling Company (NDC), Abu Dhabi Ports, and Dry Docks World.

Tasneef was also accredited by GCC countries to issue compliance and quality services in accordance with GCC specifications; in addition to being accredited by the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan to classify ships and provide maritime consulting and training services.
