Qatar-based maritime and logistics company Milaha has selected project management and engineering consultancy firm Royal HaskoningDHV to develop plans to upgrade its shipyard facilities in Mesaieed.

The company said that the decision was made in preparation for further growth in current markets and expansion into new areas of operations.

The planned upgrades include a new larger floating dock, larger and enhanced workshops and an overall revamping of the facilities.

“The phased upgrade plan for our shipyard is being done to support our business strategy and to increase the shipyard’s market share in four diversified target market sectors, all with minimal disruption to the ongoing operations at the facility,” Abdulrahman Essa Al-Mannai, Milaha’s President and CEO, said.

When completed, the shipyard will have an increased capacity and efficiency in handling repair works on larger and more complex ships.

The upgrade is expected to commence in early 2019 and to be completed by the third quarter of 2020.

Since its foundation in 1978, Milaha’s shipyard, which also provides maintenance, shutdown, fabrication and workshops services, has repaired around 8,000 vessels.
