Athens: Oman Drydock Company’s (ODC) plans to become a leader in LNG ship repair have been bolstered with Gaztransport & Technigaz (GTT) handing the yard an official license at the Posidonia shipping trade fair in Athens, Greece.
ODC chairman Dr Abdulmalik Al Hinai was joined by GTT CEO Phillippe Berterottiere at the ODC stand to make the announcement. Berterottiere said it is highly important that ODC is able to put into place a solid quality system as a centre for LNG expertise.
“Oman has an important LNG fleet and its geographical position thrusts it to the forefront of the international LNG market,” he said. “It is close to shipping routes for the Gulf and Asia. GTT has been very impressed by ODC’s commitment to standards right through its workforce, management and control systems. We also saw evidence of ODC’s determination to continue to improve into the future, which is vital to us.” [05/06/14]
