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 announced that Andrew Shaw will be the new Chief Executive of the shipyard, effective early January 2017. He re-joins the company after previously holding the position of General Manager of the ASRY Offshore Services division from 2009 to 2014.
ASRY Chairman, Shaikh Daij Bin Salman Al Khalifa, confirmed the selection: “With the current challenges facing the Middle East ship repair market, we were looking for a candidate that would bring not only relevant industry experience, but also a proven track record of good leadership, as well as a dynamic hands-on approach to facing the challenges in our future. Andy is all these things, and is also intimately familiar with the inner workings of ASRY having worked here for almost five years previously, positioning him perfectly to take the yard forward.”
Shaw has more than 25 years experience in the global maritime industry. He was most recently Group Managing Director for two and half years of a leading UK ship repair and conversion company. Prior to that he was General Manager of ASRY Offshore Services for almost five years. His previous career also includes time at Vickers Shipbuilding & Engineering Ltd (VSEL) and Vosper Thornycroft.
