Maritime Services: The largest ship repair yard in the Middle East

Through the acquisition of Drydocks World, a market leader in the ship repair business with the largest ship repair yard in the Middle East, we have been able to enhance our provision of support services. At extensive facilities in Dubai we will be able to provide repairs, as well as niche newbuild ships, and expand our ship conversions.

We have created award-winning health and safety programmes to keep our colleagues and our customers safe. Whether we are dealing with personal or environmental protection, we carry through the same commitment to safety, ensuring nothing is compromised.
