UAE: Drydocks World and Goltens Sign Memorandum of Understanding

Drydocks World, the international player in ship repair, conversion and new building has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Goltens, an international company offering wide-ranging services for maintenance and mechanical works. The MoU would enable the companies to take advantage of each other’s strengths.

We are delighted to have entered into this MoU with Goltens, which is a well-known global service provider for specialized mechanical works. We believe in working in partnership with like-minded individuals and organizations to broaden our reach and support the industry with our considerable combined expertise. The unified front of the two companies will be a strategic alliance that will enable both companies achieve better market penetration for smaller sized vessels and for developing it further in a manner that is mutually beneficial, by way of increased market share, better service to the clients,” said Khamis Juma Buamim, Chairman of Drydocks World and Maritime World.

While Drydocks World is an international entity with good infrastructure, strong reputation in ship repair, ship conversion and ship building and sizable workforce, Goltens is an international company with a strong brand name, strategically located worldwide dealing in specialist services (Diesel Overhauls, In-site Machining, mechanical etc) with a large customer base. The combination of both companies as a common face to the customers will produce a strong brand leverage, locally and internationally.

The underlying basis of the cooperation is to produce a cohesive brand to the marine industry. Synergizing different skill strengths of DDW-D and Goltens, will serve as an added advantage in providing quality service including specialized services with adequate infrastructure, technological knowhow, leading to increased business for both companies. The combination will provide both companies a critical edge to mitigate new competition arising in the regions and assimilate increasing business volumes,” said Paul Friedberg, President, Goltens Worldwide Board.

Goltens, which has a strong presence in the Middle East and across 21 locations around the globe, are under a long term Musataha ground development agreement for two plots within Dubai Maritime City. The plots measuring about 23,000 square metres are leased to Goltens for a period of 25 years, and Goltens is currently in the process of constructing a state of the art new workshop facility of 10,000m2 foot print at DMC.

A National Program has been launched, devoting nearly £65 billion to help modernize and develop four leading ports, construct ten specialized terminals and grow Mexico’s cargo handling capacity by 60%.

There has been a £2.9 billion investment into expanding the port of Veracruz which will increase the port’s terminals from 18 to 28 and enhance its cargo capacity to 116 million tons.
