Abu Dhabi Ports and Abu Dhabi Ship Building to open ship repair facility at Zayed Port

Abu Dhabi Ports has entered into a long-term contract with Abu Dhabi Ship Building (ADSB) to open a ship repair facility within the Zayed Port in the UAE.

Abu Dhabi Ports has entered into a long-term contract with Abu Dhabi Ship Building (ADSB) to open a ship repair facility within the Zayed Port in the UAE.

Once fully operational, the facility will also include a floating dock capability.

While building the new facility, the partnership will comply with several guidelines to advance operations and conveniences at Zayed Port.

"The new 12,000m² area will assist in our vision to be a leading shipbuilding company, developing world class MRO services."

During phase one of the constructions, a dedicated berth of 430 linear metres of quay wall and over 12,000m² of yard facilities will be developed.

By opening a new vessel repair facility, Abu Dhabi Ports intends to improve and contribute to UAE’s economy.

Abu Dhabi Ship Building CEO Khaled Al Mazrouei said: “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 12,000m² 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.”

ADSB constructs, repairs and refits naval, military and commercial vessels.

In June, Abu Dhabi Ports signed a lease agreement with Agthia Group to expand its existing ‘grand mills flour and animal feed’ facilities at Zayed Port.
