UAE: High-Level Delegation of Dubai Police Pays Visit to Drydocks World

A high-level delegation from the General Command of Dubai Police visited Drydocks World- Dubai recently. The team was led by H.E. Lieutenant General Dhahi Khalfan Tamim, Commander-in-Chief of Dubai Police. The delegation was received by H.E. Khamis Juma Buamim, Chairman of Drydocks World and Maritime World and Ali Bin Towaih, Vice President – Business Development, Administration & Strategies.

The delegation discussed the latest developments, innovative business strategies and plans to raise the level of maritime activity in the Middle East region. They also focused on the importance of port security and readiness to enhance the credibility and effectiveness of the shipyard, which is the largest and most prolific shipyards, in the Middle East. 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. Lieutenant General Dhahi Khalfan Tamim expressed keen interest in the latest projects including the conversion of an LNG carrier to a Floating Storage Re-gasification Unit for an Italian company and the conversion of two tankers-to-Modular Capture Vessels to work off the Gulf of Mexico. 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.

TOC Americas

TOC (The Terminal Operations Conference) has long been considered best in class by container terminal operators and their suppliers. Over time, TOC has evolved and whilst they continue to deliver the highest quality technical content in line with their heritage, they also recognise that they must now hear from stakeholders higher up the cargo chain. Therefore, there are now two distinct elements to the event:

The exhibition is a showcase for port & terminal technology and operations plus TECH TOC, the free to attend technical conference aimed at terminal operators and their suppliers. Many suppliers come together to showcase cutting edge solutions to their clients, the terminal operators and ports.

More recently, the events now placed a new focus on the container supply chain making them the premier business and networking event for the stakeholders, including shippers, carriers and 3pl’s as well as the global operators and port authorities. This conversation takes place in the more recently created Container Supply Chain Conference.
