Drydocks World has been honoured at the 2019 Mastech Awards in recognition for completing the UAE’s heaviest load-out on the BorWin Gamma High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) platform topside. This was achieved by skidding the 21,000 tonnes topside unit, including the deck support frame structure, using a sophisticated hydraulic pulling system. The yard was then able to transfer the topside onto the heavy lift vessel for transportation to the North Sea.
Speaking after the Awards ceremony Capt. Rado Antolovic, the Chief Executive and Managing Director of DP World’s Maritime Services Division, said: “This award validates the strong capabilities of our Dubai yard and positions us as a leader in providing innovative solutions to the energy sector in the UAE and worldwide.”
