The Dubai shipyard took to new building in 1994 and since then has seen a plethora of orders. The first is a 16,000 tonnes lifting capacity floating dock, constructed to supplement the yard’s own facilities. The yard built and delivered a 14,500 tonnes floating dock for Saudi Aramco in 2003.

This was quickly followed by several orders for tugs for Dubai Ports Authority, which was quickly followed other orders for pontoons, the suction dredger Umm Sequeim that is used by the yard, aluminium workboat and a line-handling tug. The yard progressively took on larger and more diverse assignments, such as a lube oil carrier, skiff boats, diving support vessels, pilot boats, harbour and anchor handling tugs, mooring launches, barges, bunker tankers and the 2000 tonnes floating crane for the yard’s own use. 

The yard has completed over 80 projects since its first new building project. The most challenging assignments include the world's largest offshore HVDC platform structure - DolWin beta, the Turret for Prelude FLNG and the Solan subsea oil storage tank. The New Building Division has constructed a series of sophisticated and modern X- Bow design seismic vessels.
