Nakilat, on behalf of Nakilat–Damen Shipyards Qatar (N-DSQ) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Qatar Petroleum for the provision of 19 vessels including harbor tugs, pilot and service boats at the port of Mesaieed.

Subject to the outcome of the tender, the successful bidder will be obliged to build all the vessels required for the contract at the N-DSQ facilities at the Port of Ras Laffan.

Nakilat’s Managing Director, Muhammad Ghannam said, “The MoU with Qatar Petroleum for the construction of harbor tugs, pilot and service boats and other equipment is an historic milestone for N-DSQ. It is a large contract that will supply a variety of vessels of different types and sizes at the new purpose-built shipyard that is ideally suited to this type of construction.
