Albwardy Marine Engineering

Welcome to Albwardy Marine Engineering, a joint venture between Albwardy Investment and the Damen Shipyards Group from the Netherlands. We provide shipbuilding and ship repair services to the marine, oil and gas related industries in the Middle East.  Operating in three UAE locations, with our management based in Sharjah Hamriya freezone, we employ around 1250 people. Our services include new building of steel and aluminum vessels, repair and services of marine as well as O&G assets. We also offer offshore and afloat repair services to clients worldwide. Our diving division offers diving and underwater cleaning services from Fujairah.

We carry out 150+ dry dockings per year from 3 UAE locations: Dubai, Sharjah and Fujairah. Our afloat and voyage repair division carries out repair jobs from our Dubai and Fujairah workshops ranging from routine maintenance to complex steel renewals and conversions afloat. With all key competences in house, including an extensive engineering division, we repair and build vessels to the highest technical and environmental standards. We are certified by LRQA to ISO 9000-14000-18000 as well as API.

With the opening of Damen Shipyards Sharjah (DSS) in early 2014, we can now offer full maintenance support at our own facility for ships up to 120 metres in length. DSS aims to be the best and most efficient shipyard in the area and since the opening of the yard we are now able to do things even more safely and efficiently than previously. DSS is now most suitable for complex conversions which are carried out regularly for O&G, dredging and other marine clients.

For our new building projects we use state-of-the-art designs and production methods both supplied and supported by the Damen Shipyards Group. We also serve as a repair and service station for Damen vessels operating in the region.
