Improved designs to provide an even faster repair service in the Middle East to operators whose vessels have sustained propeller damage. Stone Marine Shipcare has signed a service agency agreement with Dubai Drydock World. This sees one of the UK-based company’s mobile workshops permanently based at the yard.
The workshop will, however, not only be used at Drydock World’s own facilities, Stone Marine points out. It can be transported quickly to other Middle Eastern shipyards, whenever a ship is in need of repair or maintenance to its propeller.
Stone Marine technicians are currently training Drydocks World personnel and once this process is completed, repair and maintenance work will be carried out by a combination of Drydocks World and Stone Marine technicians. Don Quilliam, Managing Director of Stone Marine Shipcare, says, “With over 300 vessels docking at DDW each year we are confident this will be a strong partnership, further enhancing the excellent service and facilities offered by Dubai Drydock World with an unrivalled propeller repair and modification service.”
