ASRY, a ship and rig repair yard in the Arabian Gulf, is expanding its range of in-yard services by signing a Service Agreement with Solas Marine Services Group. The Agreement will allow Solas to build a 2,000-square-meter Service Center for Life Boats, Life Rafts and Fire Fighting & Life Saving Appliances in ASRY, which will not only expand ASRY’s services portfolio, but also bring new business opportunities to the Kingdom itself.

This is the first development in a program of increasing ASRY’s technical resources, which will continue to roll out in 2014. ASRY already boasts a leading line-up of in-yard workshops, but is investing in even more third-parties setting up in the yard, with a view to maintain its reputation as a one-stop solution for all marine repairs.

Berge emphasized the importance of the Agreement, which has been concluded under the guidance of H.E. Sh. Duaij Bin Salman Al Khalifa, the Chairman of ASRY, who is keen to diversify the income of ASRY through partnerships with major international companies.  Berge said that such partnerships would further strengthen the leading position of ASRY.  "The Agreement is in line with ASRY's policy for developing the yard’s technical resources and stay ahead of client’s needs," he pointed out.

Under the agreement, Solas will offer its variety of services to the local market as well as ASRY customers, which will contribute positively to the national income of Bahrain and boost further training and employment opportunities for Bahrainis.

The project will commence in March on an area of 2,000 square meters, and is expected to be completed in 4 to 6 months. The term of the Agreement is five years.

ASRY's Technical Resources & Business Development General Manager, Magdy M. Moustafa, said that the Agreement is the first is a series of similar arrangements which will serve as additional resources for ASRY to the satisfaction of the Board of Directors under the chairmanship of His Excellency Shaikh Duaij bin Salman Al-Khalifa. He expressed his hope that the Agreement would act as another element of success in the series of achievements of ASRY.

Solas General Manager, Sanjay Prabhu, also expressed his confidence in the fruitful cooperation with ASRY for the mutual benefit of the companies. He emphasized Solas's endeavors to further enhance future association with ASRY.

Solas Marine Services Group provides professional services in the field of Marine Safety, Life Boats, Life Rafts, Rescue Boats and other Life Saving & Fire Fighting Appliances as well as design, supply, installation and commissioning of Fire Fighting & Gas Detecting Systems.
