Ships calling on shipyards for finishing touches is the equivalent of a day at a spa for us. Check out this time lapse video of a Damen-design fast crew ship supplier Allianz Juno receiving a royal treatment at the Damen shipyard in Sharjah, United Arab Emirates.
Damen Shipyards Sharjah FZE, the newest shipyard of Albwardy Marine Engineering, was officially opened on January 13, 2014.
In a joint venture between the Damen Shipyards Group and Albwardy Marine Engineering, the core activities at DSS continue along the tried course of Damen newbuilds and Albwardy’s conversions, dry-dockings and repairs.
Damen Shipyards Sharjah is located in the Sharjah Hamriyah Free-zone.
The facility is equipped with a 120 x 26.5 metre ship-lift, with a 5,200 ton capacity and is connected to eight dry-berths, each of which is 125 metres in length.
It also features a fully enclosed blasting and painting shed and an under-cover new build construction hall.
