Aiming to provide faster repair service in the Middle East to ship operators whose vessels have sustained propeller damage, Stone Marine Shipcare has signed a Service Agency Agreement with Dubai Drydock World which sees one of the companies’ mobile workshops permanently based there. 

 
The workshop will be used, not just at Drydock Worlds’ own facilities, but can be quickly transported to other Middle Eastern shipyards, wherever a ship is in need of repair or maintenance to its propeller.
 
Stone Marine technicians are training Drydocks World personnel under an Agency Agreement and repair and maintenance work will then be carried out by a combination of Drydocks World and Stone Marine technicians.
 
Don Quilliam, Managing Director of Stone Marine Shipcare, said, “With over 300 vessels docking at DDW each year we are confident  this will be a strong partnership, further enhancing the excellent service and facilities offered by Dubai Drydock World with an unrivalled propeller repair and modification service."
