Grandweld Shipyards Announces Solid 2018
UAE-based Grandweld Shipyards said that it has closed a number of deals, as part of its landmark milestones achieved during 2018.
Grandweld’s latest achievement was highlighted with the signing of two new contracts; One with Wesal Shipping, and the second with Mars Marine Services, said a press release from the company. Both companies are long term clients of the company.
The contracts entail the delivery of two more GW42M Aluminum Crew Boats. The highly advanced design of the GW42M Crew Boats has proven to be a huge success, and therefore has stimulated the demand for this class of vessels from new and repeat clients.
Jamal Abki, General Manager of Grandweld Shipyards said: “We have sold more than 60 Crew Boats of GW42M design; it is one of our bestselling boats. Its top speed of 28 knots is a major contributing factor as to why it intrigues a great portion of our clients."
Reflecting the vision of Dubai’s 2021 for a more sustainable future, Grandweld has been committed to environmental responsibility, it said in the release.
The company said that its new facility at Dubai Maritime City (DMC) adheres to the highest environmental and sustainability standards. “Designed with premium green building technologies and standards, our new facility at DMC has been awarded The LEED Gold certificates by the US Green Building Council (USGBC).” Abki added.
