Drydocks World and Dubai Maritime City Group, the international service provider to the maritime, offshore oil and gas and energy sectors, is participating in Sea Japan conference and exhibition from April 9-11, 2014 at the Tokyo Big Sight East Hall 1&2. The Japanese market is a very important market for the group and participation is aimed at reinforcing its reach within this market and to providing clients with an update on services and new projects being undertaken. 

This year Sea Japan will focus on issues relating to environmental protection, advanced ocean technology, offshore exploration and maritime security. Prototypes and production examples for low-energy and environmentally friendly vessels will receive major attention. This is an area where the group has undertaken some pioneering work at the global level. The group has manufactured a range of specialized ships, including seismic survey vessels for research to identify the best possible subsea areas to drill for oil. These vessels have the ‘green passport’ for energy, efficiency and environment management. These are some of the most multi-functional offshore support vessels and generate more progress in the growth of the oil and gas industry all over the world than any other type of ships. These vessels have broken the world bollard pull record by an AHTS, at 402.4T, surpassing the previous record of 397T.
