: Oman Drydock Company (ODC) will formally launch a new partnership targeting the LNG carrier repair market at next month's Posidonia trade fair in Greece.
The new package is being launched with DSEC, a subsidiary of Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering Company Ltd (DSME), which is Oman Drydock Company's official partner.
ODC Chief Executive Yong Duk Park said Posidonia, which is one of the shipping industry's biggest trade fairs, is an ideal location to raise the profile of ODC and the new partnership. ODC has a 52 square metre stand in Hall 2 stand 2.217. "We are very excited about marketing this new package and welcoming visitors to our stand to hear about our plans," he said.
"Working with the DSME, we believe we have developed one of the most advanced LNG repair packages in the world. Our new services will cover areas such as cargo containment systems and the supply chain of various materials," he said.
"Meanwhile, we are also investing in new facilities including renovating our cryogenic shop so that it can cater to repairing up to four LNGCs at any one time. Our expansion into LNGC will further be strengthened by our new license to support the French engineering firm Gaztransport & Technigaz which specialises in cargo containment systems for high-end LNG carriers," he added.
Park said the Greek shipping market is of vital importance to ODC.
"ODC has already delivered repairs for more than 50 Greek owned or operated ships," he said.
"We have an important relationship with Dynacom Ship Management helping drydock a number of its vessels including VLCCs. We are further proud to repair the Astro Polaris owned by Maran Tankers which we delivered a day ahead of schedule."
Park said ODC will be looking to increase awareness of its world class facilities and workforce at Posidonia.
