Abu Dhabi Ship Building diversifies

Dubai: Given the extreme competition among shipyards in the region Abu Dhabi Ship Building has chosen to diversify into naval work. It is partnering with France’s Thales to provide maintenance services to naval forces across the region as it diversifies away from vessel construction.

“We signed an agreement with Thales group regarding a partnership of repairs, services, and maintenance to ships from different navies – not only in the UAE, but GCC and more,” said Khaled Al Mazrouei, the yard’s chief executive. “Abu Dhabi Ship Building wanted to partner with a company that has been doing this for many years, and we realised that Thales is the right partner.”
