Asyad Dry Dock
Asyad Drydock (formerly Oman Drydock Company LLC - a subsidiary of Asyad Group) is located at the Port of Duqm and is strategically positioned along the global shipping routes, benefitting customers by reducing deviation time. With a 2,800-meter quay, a water depth of 9-10 meters, 14 sets of jib cranes and two graving docks, the Drydock can handle vessels up to 600,000 DWT efficiently.
Commencing operations in 2011, Asyad Drydock initially specialized in handling LNG and VLCC vessels, before expanding into gas carriers, car carriers, bulk carriers, pipe layers, heavy lift ships, cruise vessels and oil tankers. Today, Asyad Drydock provides ship maintenance and conversion facilities for all types of vessels, offering a full range of general vessel repair services, including engineering, electrical, propulsion, accommodation upgrades, fitting, blasting, and painting, as well as procurement, testing, trials and class surveys.
Asyad Drydock's substantial steel work capabilities and expertise enable it to manage major and minor emergency repair projects swiftly and efficiently. Following the expansion of its services, Asyad Drydock also designs and fabricates steel works for the petrochemical industry and the construction and maintenance of off-shore platforms for the oil and gas industry; it is increasingly investing in new technology.
In 2017, Asyad Drydock further extended its service portfolio by signing a Joint Venture agreement with Babcock International Group to establish Duqm Naval Dockyard (DND), offering unique naval ship repair services. With extensive expertise gained from working with international navies around the globe, DND adds a strategically important dimension to Asyad Drydock’s world-class ship repair and maintenance capabilities, offering support to military forces operating in the region.
