Abu Dhabi Ship Building has excellent facilities for the repair of Commercial vessels. The Mussafah Shipyard on the outskirts of Abu Dhabi is constantly busy carrying out all types of work, from minor repairs to major overhauls of Hull Structures, Machinery and Accommodation Outfitting. Clients range from Private Pleasure Boat Owners to Dredging Companies and Oil Industry Offshore Fleets.
Routine Maintenance to Major Upgrades
Each year, ADSB handles approximately 200 repair and upgrade work contracts involving drydocking, painting and repair and maintenance work although some repair or refit work is also performed off-site or afloat. The vessels include Tugs, Barges, Landing Crafts, and a variety of Oil Industry Work Boats, including Crew Boats, Diving Vessels, Supply and Safety Vessels and Anchor Handling Boats.
Long-Term Maintenance Contracts for Public and Private Sector
Oilfield Services Company ESNAAD and the Oil Terminal Operator IRSHAD, both subsidiaries of Abu Dhabi National Oil Company, have long-term drydocking agreements with ADSB. Long-term maintenance contracts allow greater efficiencies for both parties, enabling them to plan drydocking of ships well in advance, without having to go through the process of separate tendering for each individual job.
Other prominent owners that entrust their vessels to ADSB include the Dutch Companies, Boskalis, Vaan Oordz and Damen Marine Services, while UAE companies include Al Seer Marine and National Marine Dredging Company.
