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.
