ASRY (Arab Shipbuilding & Repair Yard) is the Arabian Gulf’s leading maritime repair and fabrication facility. Founded in 1977 in Bahrain, the multi-service yard operates in four sectors – Ship Repair & Conversion, Rig Repair & Conversion, Naval Repair & Conversion, and Fabrication & Engineering.
ASRY’s variety of facilities, from graving dock to floating dock, to slipways, to 4km of alongside berth space, means maximum flexibility in accommodating ship schedules.
Every major repair sub-contractor, classification society, and specialist workshop has an on-site presence at ASRY so that any repair requirements can be met without delay.
Bahrain’s trade policies mean that importing and exporting parts and labour is quicker and more efficient than regional yards, meaning faster turnaround for all repair projects.
MANAMA: ASRY, the leading ship and rig repair yard in the Arabian Gulf, has donated $50,000 to the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) International Search and Rescue Trust Fund. The purpose of the Trust Fund is to improve maritime search and rescue capabilities to locate and rescue persons at sea in what has always been one of the world’s most dangerous professions.
The donation took place during the recent Seatrade Global Awards Ceremony held in Guidhall, London. The event honors the global leaders in the shipping industry and provided the ideal platform for ASRY to demonstrate its commitment and support of the safety and security of persons.
ASRY Chairman, Shaikh Daij Bin Salman Al Khalifa, said at the cheque handover: “As the leading shipyard in the Arabian Gulf, ASRY is dedicated to the security and safety of all persons at sea. Shipping can be one of the most dangerous professions in the world and we hope this donation helps to reduce the risks involved in seafaring, helps the delivery of priority activities and projects on maritime search and rescue, and helps make the seas as safe and secure as possible.”
