The new unit, Drydocks World - Global Offshore Services, has at its disposal highly efficient technical teams ever-prepared to be mobilized at short notice to service vessels at distant offshore locations, said the Dubai ship builder in a statement.
High and well-equipped workshops in Dubai and Fujairah offer sophisticated support services, it added.
"The reinforcement of Drydocks World - Global Offshore Services with an extension in Fujairah supporting our main workshop in Dubai is part of our long-term business strategy," said Khamis Juma Buamim, the chairman of Drydocks World and Maritime World.
"Our vision is to broaden the reach of our services and to cater to repair and maintenance needs of vessel, Rigs and Yacht owners at offshore locations and overseas," he stated.
