Dubai-based Drydocks World has announced the development of ‘South Yard’ facility, as part of DP World strategy and Dubai ‘s smart technology transformation.

This latest project aims at increasing its fabrication capacity equipped with new technologies to offer improved services to its clients.  

‘South Yard’ facility focuses on offering construction of world-class facilities for the Oil and Gas and Renewable Energy segments. The firm, a leading provider of Marine and Offshore services to the shipping, oil, gas, and energy sectors, is building a 70,000 square-metre-area dedicated facility for newbuilding projects.  

The ‘South Yard’ will be a world-class yard featuring cutting-edge equipment, a much leaner execution process and a completely new load-out facility for heavy structures which is expected to appeal to O&G and renewable energy clients.

Drydocks World is focused on efficiency improvements whilst maintaining the highest levels of safety and quality standards. The ‘South Yard’ facility will support that strategy by developing specific infrastructure to realise the future project pipeline thereby enabling competitive advantages in the region and globally. 

“Drydocks World shipyard has set ambitious targets to increase its production capacity and operational efficiency. It is currently working towards achieving these goals by developing existing facilities and raising their performance using smart technology adoption and leading engineering practices,” commented Mohammed Al Muallem, Executive Vice President of DP World.

“We are very excited by the plans we have for our South Yard facility as we believe there are a number of firms in the market looking for this kind of dedicated area offering specialist facilities and technology,” said DryDocks World CEO Captain Rado Antolovic.

“We are confident it will play a vital role in attracting new strategic partnerships, gaining more value from operational costs and improving profitability, all of which are directly proportional to the high HSSE standards, smarter logistics, leaner execution, improved fabrication material flows and safer operations.”
