Abu Dhabi Ship Building has been awarded a contract to build four landing craft for the Bahrain Naval Forces. The multi-million dollar contract was won in the face of competition from international shipyards.

This is the second Bahraini order for Abu Dhabi Ship Building (ADSB), the only dedicated naval shipbuilding and repair facility in the Arabian Gulf.

The new contract, awarded by the Kingdom of Bahrain Defense Force, is for the construction of two 42-metre steel landing craft and two 16-metre landing craft made of composite materials. The work will be undertaken at ADSB’s Mussafah shipyard.

The steel vessels are designed for troops and vehicle or cargo transportation and for beach landings in Gulf coastal waters.

The 16-metre craft, the Sea Keeper 715, will be built in ADSB’s state-of-the-art composite workshop and, with a capability of traveling at 35 + knots, are designed for the rapid deployment of personnel and supplies.

Work is also currently underway at ADSB’s Mussafah shipyard on the refit and upgrade of ten Bahrain Coast Guard patrol boats in a contract that was awarded last year.

Abu Dhabi Ship Building, a UAE Public Joint Stock Company, was established in 1996. ADSB is listed in the Abu Dhabi Securities Exchange (ADX) and its current shareholding is 40% by Mubadala Development Company, 10% by the Abu Dhabi Government and 50% by several thousand individual shareholders.
