Your problem - our fix

Dockings up to 130M LOA

Our largest operation, Albwardy Damen - Sharjah is conveniently located in the Sharjah Hamriyah Free Zone with unrestricted access to the sea. Just like Dubai, this yard is ideally positioned for easy access to all seven Emirates, as well as providing connections to neighbouring Gulf States closer to the Strait of Hormuz.

Designed and built to the highest technical and environmental standards, the spacious new yard is located on a huge 210,000 square metre site with a fully enclosed blasting/painting shop, as well as a covered newbuild construction hall. We have all the major trades in-house, including an extensive and experienced Engineering Department. With a 120x26 metre shiplift, ample docking space and 1,000 metres of quayside with a water depth of up to 8 metres, we are serving all operators in the region which have vessels of up to 120 metres.

Drydockings are also offered from Dubai and Fujairah. Our operation in Dubai offers drydocking repairs in Al Jadaf and Dubai Maritime City where we can dock vessels up to 130 x 33 metres in size.

Our mechanical teams can perform in-house repairs to all the main, auxiliary and propulsion equipment from the major suppliers. We also provide a service and maintenance hub for Damen-built vessels.
