Abu Dhabi Ports and Abu Dhabi Ship Building (ADSB) have signed a long term contract that when fulfilled will see a fully operational ship repair facility that will also include a “floating dock” capability within Zayed Port.

Captain Mohamed Al Shamisi, Chief Executive Officer of Abu Dhabi Ports, said: “In line with the UAE leadership’s vision to achieve the diversification of the national economy, our agreement with Abu Dhabi Ship Building to establish a ship repair facility and floating dock capability will play a key role in boosting the trade and maritime industry in Abu Dhabi and enhance the contribution of the sector to the UAE’s GDP.”

Dr. Khaled Al Mazrouei, Chief Executive Officer of ADSB said: “We are proud to sign this agreement with Abu Dhabi Ports, that aims to strengthen our long term partnership between the two companies and cement the joint relationship. The operational expansion of ADSB through the new floating dry dock in Zayed Port reflects the positive growth seen in the UAE ship building and repair sector. It is also a testament of the effective strategy ADSB has adopted to provide the most innovative MRO services to our customers regionally and internationally. The new 12,000 square meter area will assist in our vision to be a leading shipbuilding company, developing world class MRO services. The new area includes ship workshops as well as the floating dry dock that will transform the ADSB services to a new era of growth as it aspires to expand its commercial services.”
