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.
ASRY, the leading rig and ship repair yard in the Arabian Gulf, has entered into new negotiations with several European fleets while exhibiting at SMM Hamburg, one of the largest maritime exhibitions in the world. The exhibition, the largest version in its history, with 2,100 exhibitors from 67 different countries, and over 50,000 visitors expected, is a leading platform for all major maritime players to attend.
“Every major shipyard, as well as nearly every one of ASRY’s customers, comes to Hamburg,” commented ASRY Chief Executive, Nils Kristian Berge, “which makes it an essential platform for a shipyard of our size and reputation. This year’s show had us talking with potential customers about upcoming repair opportunities from the very first hour. These kind of new leads are the reason SMM is so important.”
ASRY’s exhibiting strategy shifted in 2014 to take advantage of their local agents expertise. By co-exhibiting with their local German agents, Zoepffel & Schneider, the yard has been exposed to more potential customers than ever before. Berge confirmed that ASRY’s business levels in Q4 is looking to increase, and the new leads scored at SMM may well bolster those levels.
