Offshore staff

ABU DHABI, UAE – Abu Dhabi Ship Building has expanded its facility in Mussafah to accommodate maintenance, repairs, and overhauling services.

Facility upgrades included the extension of the quay wall by about 155 m (510 ft), the completion of a new pontoon, and an electrical substation. The expansion program enables the company to accommodate more vessels for fit outs, tests, and trials. 

Mohamed Salem Al Junaibi, CEO of Abu Dhabi Ship Building, said: “We are keen on leveraging our vast expertise in MRO services with the increased focus on this domain. Our world-class shipbuilding and repair facility has given us a significant competitive edge in the regional market, as we are able to undertake new construction projects in steel, aluminium alloy, or composite materials.”

Each year the company handles about 300 repair and upgrade projects for vessels such as tugs, barges, landing craft, dredgers, work boats, crew boats, diving vessels, supply and safety vessels, and anchor handling tug boats. Most of these jobs involve dry docking, but some are carried out afloat and offsite.
