Wednesday, November 29, 2006
Abu Dhabi Ship Building (ADSB) has delivered a multi-purpose vessel to Emirates Dredging Company (EDC) four weeks ahead of schedule. The Multi Cat 1908 is the first vessel of its type built by ADSB and will be used in dredging support operations in Abu Dhabi waters. It will join a 12 metre Pushy Cat Tug Boat that was delivered last month by ADSB. Emirate Dredging Company General Manager Mr Ahmed Nagi Al Masaabi said: “We are delighted to receive this high quality new vessel one month ahead of the contract delivery schedule. These two achievements provide EDC with the satisfaction that they have chosen the right builder in Abu Dhabi Ship Building. This versatile 18.70 metre Bureau Veritas classed Multi Cat, named EDC M1, has been designed by ADSB’s strategic partner Damen Shipyards of Holland. It has a speed in excess of 9 Knots, a 10.6 tonne bollard pull and is fitted with a 6.4 tonne hydraulic crane. The vessel is also fitted with cargo tanks for fuel oil and fresh water. Source: HK Law
