On 29 May at the presentation ceremony for the International Maritime Awards, held at the two-day Shiptek 2016 conference in Dubai, Damen Shipyards Sharjah (DSSh) received the prize for Best New Building Yard. The trophy was accepted at the ceremony by DSSh managing director Lars Seistrup.

DSSh is a joint venture between the Damen Shipyards Group and Albwardy Investment, bringing Damen quality and skills to the UAE. The new yard has the facilities to repair and construct all type of vessels, and has recently delivered tugs, workboats, support vessels, dredgers, landing craft, floating docks, barges and pontoons, to operators in and around the Arabian Gulf. The yard in the Hamriyah Free Zone, Sharjah, was officially opened in January 2014 and meets the highest standards of modern ship construction and repair. Among the many facilities it features are an undercover, new build hall, a 5,200 tonne ship lift and eight dry docks, each 125 metres in length.

“What makes us unique in Hamriyah is that we took the opportunity to build the perfect yard and offer services that are quick, efficient and safe, all in one place,” said Lars Seistrup. “We are proud to say that we can offer our clients the highest quality and still maintain reasonable prices. It is wonderful to receive this award, which shows that our suppliers and clients value the quality of the vessels that we build and the services that we provide. I would also like to congratulate everyone in our new building department for their hard work and enthusiasm.”
