RAK Ports in the UAE has further enhanced its already close relationship with the Boskalis group by re-opening its Al Jeer facility to enable the safe lay-up of the Dutch company’s marine equipment in Ras Al Khaimah.
During the past few months, RAK Ports has dedicated considerable time and effort to prepare the facility to suit Boskalis’ requirements in the region, with the support of a number of governmental agencies. Kenneth Neves, Boskalis Yard Manager, Ras Al Khaimah, says, ”We set up our Regional Technical and Logistic Centre in Saqr Port Free Zone in 2012 and have been working closely with RAK Ports ever since. When we ran out of lay-up space for our marine craft at our current facility, RAK Ports was quick to offer a solution of re-opening their Al Jeer port facility dedicated for us. We wish to thank RAK Ports for their support, as it has been smooth sailing from the start.”
