Manama, November 19, 2013
Bahrain-based Arab Shipbuilding & Repair Yard (Asry) will be a strategic supporter of Gulf Industry Fair (GIF) 2014, to be held in Bahrain from 4 to 6 February 2014, the show organisers Hilal Conferences and Exhibitions said.
Asry will support the Ports and Maritime Zone at the Fair, widely considered the leading business-to-business industrial trade show of its kind in the Northern Gulf.
Jubran Abdulrahman, HCE managing director said: “The strategic support of a maritime company of Asry’s global stature and pedigree is integral to our goal of raising the profile of the Fair’s Ports and Maritime Zone. Asry’s involvement will highlight the capacities, capabilities and competitive advantages of Bahrain and the GCC for ship repair and maritime industries, and the importance of the sector to regional economies.”
Nils Kristian Berge, Asry acting chief executive commented: “Gulf Industry Fair has traditionally and consistently provided an excellent platform to not only promote our services, but also demonstrate our support for the Kingdom’s industrial sector. This year our strategic support for the Fair will place greater emphasis on the potential of the region’s maritime sector, and Asry’s leadership position thereof.”
Asry has been at the forefront of the ship and offshore rig repair market for more than 35 years, and is the undisputed regional hub for marine expertise delivered through its four divisions: Ship Repair Services, Offshore Services, Consultancy Services, and Energy Services.
Asry’s facilities and capabilities are world-class: a 500,000dwt dry dock; two floating docks 252m and 227m long respectively; 15 repair berths approximately 4,000m long in total; twin 255m slipways, as well as a full range of workshops and service centres. – TradeArabia News Service
