Oman Drydock Company’s recently appointed Chief Executive Officer will use this year’s Posidonia event as a platform to share his plans for the company.
“We are already delivering top class services to our customers, utilising our existing first-class facilities, which are now complimented by the recent investment in a new floating dock. We are always striving for the best service offering and options to our customers, and continual investment is key to delivering this.” commented Said.
ODC’s facility, which is strategically located in Duqm, on Oman’s Indian Ocean coastline, is equipped with the latest state of the art equipment. In total the yard covers an area more than 2.4 million m2. The shipyard has two ULCC size graving docks (410m x 95m and 410m x 80m), five quays, with a total of 2800 m of alongside berthage with water depths of between 9 and 10 m, and 14 jib cranes with lifting capacities of between 40 – 100 t. Its five workshops cover outfitting, electrical works, machinery, hulls, blasting and painting, and a cryogenics clean room for LNG tanker repair work.
Since ODC began operations back in 2011 the yard has carried out some 570 repair/conversion projects, and in response to recent market demands, ODC has managed to build a strong portfolio of experience in carrying out both ballast water management system installation and scrubber retrofitting, making it one of most attractive yards in the region.
