Drydocks World’s flagship Dubai shipyard was conceived and developed to address the repair needs of oil tankers traversing the Gulf region. Ship repair remains the core business of the yard and is the main stay of the company’s annual turnover. Its service portfolio includes ULCCs and VLCCs, bulk carriers, containerships, ro-ro vessels, cargo vessels, gas carriers, chemical tankers, offshore vessels and rigs. The yard has repaired over 7,500 vessels. The aggregate tonnage of ships repaired is over 500 million dwt.

The Dubai shipyard has dry docked the world’s largest ship Knock Nevis, previously known as Jahre Viking, several times before it was converted to a FSO at the yard.  The yard has repaired vessels from independent owners, managed vessels and from oil majors. Its large 1m dwt graving dock is used to dry dock several ships or rigs at a time. 
It has created a niche of its own in carrying out multi-tasking scopes on Offshore Platform Vessels, drilling rigs and jack-up rigs. The yard has successfully dry-docked, repaired and refurbished over a hundred offshore platform vessels in the past three decades.   

It is one of the major players in the LNG repair market is adding a modern cryogenic workshop to enhance capabilities to service this sector. The yard repaired its first vessel, the largest Moss type LNG carrier at that point of time, ’Mubaraz’ in 1996. Since then, nearly 100 LNG carriers of both Moss and Membrane type have been repaired at the yard. 
The yard has a Technical Service Agreement with ‘Gaztransport and Technigaz’ (GTT) since 2004 for repair of Membrane type containment system. In addition, Makers’ Service Engineers are available locally for Shinko cargo pumps, Osaka, Nakakita and Fukui Seisakusho valves, Foxboro custody transfer system and Bently Nevada vibration monitoring system.
Drydocks World-PaxOcean yards have extensive experience in undertaking comprehensive ship repairs and upgrades for life extension, consisting of services like steel renewals, pipe work, automation, blasting and painting, re-engineering and dry-docking.
Arahura, Passenger Ferry
Arahura owners, Interislander, trusted us with the task of modifying and repairing the iconic passenger ferry from New Zealand. This ship has been performing her duty of ferrying cars and people between the North and South Island of the New Zealand archipelago. One of the most dramatic changes in this project, the modification of a section on the aft of the ship, required the cutting of the aforementioned which used to be passenger accommodations to make room for recreational areas.  
Jascon 28, Accomodation Barge

The accommodation barge Jascon 28 was docked in February 2008 to be fitted with some new items and to undergo a major upgrade of accommodations. The project scope included the installation of a 270t Seatrax crane. For this crane, the pedestal was pre-fabricated and assembled before its installation onboard. A 34t TTS deck crane was also installed after the strengthening of the under deck structure. One Warstila retractable thruster and two new ThrustMaster thrusters were added to the existing 4 thrusters. Fifteen new cabins were added to the existing ones and this barge now has the capacity to sleep 462 persons. Some of the new additions to the barge were the DP3 positioning equipment, a new communications system, an extra switchboard and Genset.
