Ship repair, conversion and new building yard Drydocks World – Dubai has announced that it has renewed its long-standing association with BP Shipping with the signing of a new alliance agreement.
In a statement released to the press Drydocks World said the agreement will see the two companies work closely to achieve “optimum production levels” based on mutually agreed terms, which includes “strict implementation of accepted standards in safety, quality and environmental protection”.
Under the terms of Agreement, a joint team headed by Ravi Senaratne, commercial director, Drydocks World – Dubai and Andrew Cassels, manager, Fleet Integrity Team, BP Shipping, will monitor all repair projects from the outset, even prior to the vessel’s arrival in Dubai, until the work is complete and the ship leaves the yard.
“BP Shipping has been one of our key partners for over a decade. The continuance of this alliance proves the level of satisfaction the company has experienced with our services, global standards of excellence and the quality of our professional and technical expertise,” Nawal Saigal, MD of Drydocks World – Dubai said.
Drydocks World–Dubai has a long history of co-operation with BP Shipping, starting in 1992 when British Renown became the first vessel from the company to dock at the Dubai yard for repair works. Since then 44 major projects have been completed for BP Shipping at the yard.
