Khamis Juma Buamim, Chairman of Drydocks World & Maritime World, the international service provider to the maritime and oil and gas sectors, visited Jadaf shipyard, one of the oldest such yards in the region addressing the repair and maintenance of small to midsize vessels.

The visit to the shipbuilding and repair yard Jadaf Dubai, the oldest facility in the Gulf region, was aimed at inspecting the facility, services and competency at repair and maintenance of ships, yachts and cruise ships and small and medium-sized tugs operating in the Dubai Creek.

It is a significant part of UAE’s traditions steeped in maritime culture and heritage. Jadaf Dubai is considered an important part of the maritime traditions, culture and heritage of the United Arab Emirates and provides support and special services to ship owners, boats and fishing vessels and large timber ships cross the seas of the Arabian Gulf to the ports of India, Pakistan, Iran and the Arab states in the Gulf and Gulf of Oman and the African coast.

Mr. Buamim was briefed on marine services and operations on jetties and dry berths and various business processes and customer service. He announced a complete cessation of sandblasting as part of a strategic plan to maintain environment and represented by "Zero Harm" to the sea and air environments and civil rights.

The yard, which is located near Dubai Creek, has completed over 70,000 operations. In addition to docking and undocking of vessels weighing up to 250-2,500 metric tons, the yard provided a number of technical services such as power and water supply to the contractors who worked on the vessels that were docked at the yard. The combination of adequate berthing space, a wide variety of craft expertise and a remarkably flexible facility, all serve to attract ship owners continuously. The energy and water supplies were upgraded for contractors who work on ships that dock at the facility and work to provide adequate space for docking ships, in addition to the availability of large staff with extensive experience in various crafts and technical skills to serve the ship owners continuously.

It is estimated that nearly 80% of all the small and medium sized vessels passing through the region used to dock at the shipyard for maintenance and repair.

His Excellency Khamis Juma Buamim met representatives of client companies in Jadaf and expressed his desire to work co-operatively and offered all necessary assistance for fuelling business growth. “We are aware of the stellar contributions made by our business partners based in Jadaf, towards furthering the rich maritime cultural heritage of the country. They help complement our portfolio of services and offer a plethora of diversified services to vessel owners, as a one-stop-shop for all maritime and ancillary services. We have had maintained regular contact with our clients to update ourselves and to ventilate on pressing issues of mutual concern from time to time. This has helped upgrade our service so that they remain current and relevant.”

Mr. Buamim listened to some observations from owners of large commercial wooden ships of Somalia, India, Iran, and called for everyone to work to overcome the difficulties and to facilitate services and help stakeholders liaise with government departments to encourage and attract more business and increase productivity.

Several major companies are operating from the workshops and warehouses that are available on lease within the Jadaf facility. A steady increase in volume of maritime trade in the Middle East meant more ships pass through the area and more business to the ship repair companies based in the facility.
