The strategic importance of the shipyard, which is located at one of the world’s busiest shipping routes, was widely acknowledged.

The Group also discussed the recent focus on oil and gas industries and building offshore support vessels and platforms. The yard is the preferred choice for the maintenance of ships and offshore equipment and structures including conversion and new building. H.E.

The shipyard is also building the world’s largest Offshore Power platform structure for supporting power distribution to Germany.

The visitors later toured the Drydocks World facility and adjoining Dubai Maritime City (DMC) and expressed consistent interest in the operations and procedures, system facilities including the capacity and energy capacity, and other specialized services for the marine industries.
