To deliver two more GW42M Aluminum Crew Boats this year
The fully integrated, UAE-based, Grandweld Shipyards, has exhibited immaculate operations and achieved a number of landmark milestones during 2018.
From environmentally friendly and sustainable services, to closing new deals; the company is embedding its footprint in the maritime industry to make its presence known.
Existing and new clients continue to seek Grandweld for its impeccable deliveries and designs, proving that the company is a invaluable port for all maritime related services.
Jamal Abki, General Manager of Grandweld Shipyards said: “Grandweld has been the trusted provider of workboats, security and offshore support vessels to a wide range of key players in the maritime industry; from offshore to ports and terminal operators.
“With the help of our in-house engineering and design team, we are able to tailor quality services to all our clients. The company has been incorporating safety and sustainable measures into its business, which makes us a favorable choice for the regional maritime industry’s stake holders.
“Our recent reports are an accurate representation of this, as we have witnessed high demand for our vessels, especially the 42M Crew Boats.”
Grandweld’s new facility at Dubai Maritime City (DMC) adheres to the highest environmental and sustainability standards.
Holding a LEED Gold certificate reinforces Grandweld’s efforts and status as a sustainable shipyard. LEED, or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is the most widely used green building rating system in the world.
Grandweld’s latest achievement was highlighted with the signing of two new contracts; One with Wesal Shipping, and the second with Mars Marine Services. Both companies are long term clients of the company.
The contracts entail the delivery of two more GW42M Aluminum Crew Boats.
The highly advanced design of the GW42M Crew Boats has proven to be a huge success, and therefore has stimulated the demand for this class of vessels from new and repeat clients.
“Grandweld is pleased to receive repeat business from its clients, as this is a reflection of the confidence our clients have in our products.” Abki said.
Abki commented: “We have sold more than 60 Crew Boats of GW42M design; it is one of our bestselling boats. Its top speed of 28 knots is a major contributing factor as to why it intrigues a great portion of our clients.
“The 42M Crew Boats also include luxury seating, accommodation for VIP guests, larger deck space and enhanced comfort for the crew.”
Other features which emphasize the vessel’s unique traits includes; 360-degree visibility from the wheel house, 100,000 cum of FO and 25,000 cum of FW, and a spacious passenger area which takes up to 100 personnel.
