2018 has been a year where in Albwardy Damen Fujairah we have branched out into new activities and new locations.

Above water hull cleaning

We are actively carrying out above water hull cleaning (from water line to boot top) on vessels at the Khorfakkan anchorage. The Port Authorities in Khorfakkan analyze the type of fouling on the ships hull when we receive a request from client. They do this by looking at hull condition photographs and then decide if the vessel is suitable for this activity. So far all vessels that we have requested have received approval as these have not been contaminated with oil. To ensure environmental compliance during this activity our trained cleaners ensure that paint is not damaged.

Cargo tanks cleaning pipes renewal

During mid of year, we attended an FSU Oceania (Floating Storage Unit) for her Cargo tanks cleaning pipes renewal. Approx. 1KM of pipes were renewed at the Fujairah anchorage. This was a very challenging job where we co-ordinated with a company carrying out tank cleaning simultaneously. We renewed this pipework without using hot-work (Pipes were fabricated in our workshop inside Fujairah Port). Entire job was completed on time and to satisfaction of vessel owners

Sohar and Salalah Ports in the Sultanate of Oman

We now also mobilize from our Fujairah workshop to, Sohar and Salalah Ports in the Sultanate of Oman. We have carried out a variety of jobs in these ports ranging from Anchor Recoveries and installation back on board the vessel to steel repairs on a Gas Carrier. We can even put a riding Gang on board vessel in Fujairah carry out the work during the sea passage to Sohar and disembark the team there. Overall, attending jobs at Sohar have been found easy to attend (if planned in advance).

The Diving Division has had an extremely busy year and are active in all UAE ports and in addition Sohar & Salalah in Oman.

The Fujairah Team look forward for great beginning of 2019!!
