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, showcased its products and services at one of the world’s leading shipping exhibitions, Posidonia, in Athens, boosting its commercial presence in one of the globe’s main shipping hubs.
Nils Kristian Berge, ASRY Chief Executive, commented at the show that “Posidonia is a strategic focal point for many of our European customers, especially Greek ship owners. Historically, the Greek market has been an important part of our ship repair revenues stream, and the show is an ideal platform to make personal contact with those clients, as well as raise awareness of ASRY in the continental market.”
Posidonia has grown on the back of a market upswing, with the 2014 iteration expecting record attendance to the 1,870 exhibitors from 93 countries. Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaris highlighted the importance of the show with a keynote speech and personal tour of the exhibition, including the ASRY stand. Greece is a Mediterranean hub for the shipping industry accounting for 7% of the countries GDP, and provides jobs for almost 192,000 people.
