Reduction in rates aimed to benefit small vessel owners.
 

Maritime World has announced the reduction of tariff rates along all aspects of the business at Dubai Maritime City (DMC) and Jadaf from January 2013. This is in light of Drydocks World – Dubai’s 30th Anniversary celebrations in 2013. The reduction by from 2012 rates is aimed at facilitating the growth of the industry at the micro-level and increasing the repair and maintenance options available to small to medium size vessel-owners.
 

“We are able to play our part in the growth and development of the industry, especially the small scale vessel owners, and offer greater value by enhancing the quality of service delivery. We have pledged our support to the small boat-owners and to organizations such as the Dubai Fishermen’s Cooperative Association and other such association which benefit small commercial fishermen. They represent our rich maritime heritage and are in danger of being phased out by the great technological strides taken by the industry. Vessel owners registered with the Dubai Fishermen’s Cooperative Association will be entitled to a further 10 percent discount on certain services,” said Khamis Juma Buamim, Chairman of Drydocks World and Maritime World.
 

DMC and Jadaf offer ship lift operation and technical support to vessel owners. The former has ship lifts capable of lifting 3000 and 6000 tonnes and the latter, which is located adjacent to Dubai Creek and is one of the oldest shipyards in the region, has ship lifts that can lift 300 tonnes and 2400 tonnes vessel deadweight. Both yards offer an extensive range of services through contractor companies based within the premises. There is a move to increase the berthing capacity at DMC ship lifts in the near future by adding 5 dry berths, each berth of 150 meters and wet berths by 200 meters. This would help address increasing demand from the region.
