The service agreement will be signed in October 2012.

As per the agreement, ABB Turbocharging Dubai will provide international factory warranties to all service jobs done at Drydocks World, including dedicated machines and engineers at a workstation within the shipyard facility. Over 100 ABB Service Stations worldwide will also provide assistance to Drydocks World if required, giving it the advantage of accessibility to a quick response and global services.


H.E. Hisham Abdulla Al Shirawi, 2nd Vice Chairman, Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry stated that the signing of the agreement on the sidelines of the Dubai Chamber Trade Mission to SMM 2012, came in line with the mission’s aim of establishing new business partnerships, exchanging of experiences and innovations in the maritime sector.

It goes out to showcase the competitive advantages and maritime facilities offered by the emirate as this also caters to Dubai Chamber’s strategic objective of creating a favourable business environment while promoting Dubai as an international business hub,” said Al Shirawi.
