ABU DHABI / WAM

Abu Dhabi Ship Building (ADSB) announced the commissioning of the company’s first floating dock, located in Mina Zayed, with the aim of expanding its commercial service offerings.
Commenting on the occasion, Dr Khaled Al Mazrouei, CEO of Abu Dhabi Ship Building, said, “We are proud to announce this latest milestone for Abu Dhabi Ship Building. The addition of the floating dry-dock contributes to our commitment to expanding our service offering, strengthening our local maritime services and industries, and delivering on the large scale goal of Abu Dhabi’s continued economic diversification.”
The new floating dry-dock enhances the company’s service capabilities, allowing ADSB to service ships that were previously too large to be handled to their headquarters in Mussafah. The floating dry-dock now allows ADSB to dock vessels up to 180m in length, almost the length of two football pitches. The floating dock was commissioned in mid-July.
