“Yameela Ferry” conversion works

In focus: ✔ Conversion works ✔ Drydocking ✔Albwardy Damen Sharjah ✔Yameela Ferry ✔ Abu Dhabi Ports

Abu Dhabi Ports

The Department of Transport (DoT) was established in 2006 to cover the entire value chain and ensure fully coordinated planning in all aspects of transport policy and development in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi. Yameela, one of the main assets of the Department of Transport (DOT) of Abu Dhabi’s ferry transportation sector, required a new accommodation module and needed a reliable contractor to execute the project.

DOT has appointed Abu Dhabi Ports -their Strategic Partner- to handle the Tendering process of the Yameela Ferry Conversion Project.

Today, Albwardy Damen is competing with the best ports and industrial zones in the world having earned a reputation for exceptional, value-added services. Eng. Magdy Ahmed technical superintendent appointed by DOT (Department of Transport) of Abu Dhabi states: “Albwardy Damen with its reputation regionally and globally is a reliable place to handle such one of a kind conversion project.

“The Yard is state-of-the-art, a one-stop-shop for repairs, modification and conversion works with its in-house engineering department that facilitates any required adjustments or discrepancies that may occur throughout the execution process.

“The Yameela Project is a unique project that includes prefabrication with installation of a new accommodation module structure, along with all other drydocking general works such as scrapping, blasting and painting works, along with miscellaneous aluminium renewals at various locations.

“Albwardy Damen will also carry out the outfitting for the new accommodation block and a general drydocking. Although the yard is consistently busy, they still manage to provide high quality service whilst maintaining the highest standards of HSE throughout the project execution. Along with their several locations in Dubai, Sharjah & Fujairah, their new facility coming up next year in DMC (Dubai Maritime City) will be a great advantage as it will bring the same quality of work to Dubai as we currently enjoy in the Sharjah yard.

“We definitely would recommend Albwardy Damen for our future works, the history we have already reflects that it’s a reliable place to do business with."
