    Albwardy Damen recognised as Best New Building Yard at ShipTek Awards 2021

    Albwardy Damen, a leading provider of shipbuilding and ship repair services in the marine, and oil and gas related industries in the Middle East, was recognised as the Best New Building Yard at the 14th edition of the ShipTek International Awards 2021, held in Dusit Thani Hotel, Dubai, on June 7, 2021. The award was received by Willem Moelker, sales & marketing director, Albwardy Damen.

    The ShipTek International Maritime Awards has established itself as one of the most distinguished events in the maritime, offshore and oil & gas sectors. The 14th edition of the awards recognised significant industry players who contributed to the sector's growth, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting market disruption.

Furthermore, the company's diving services and anchor recoveries division in Fujairah serves ports and anchorages across the UAE and provides services such as underwater hull cleaning.

    Commenting on the company’s achievement at ShipTek 2021, Lars Seistrup, managing director of Albwardy Damen, said, “2020 was a very challenging year for all of us due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Having said that, it was also one of the busiest years ever for our newbuilding department. Our schedule was packed with the construction and delivery of two vessels of almost 100 metres length each. Having worked so hard over the past one and a half years of the pandemic, it is a great honour to be given this award”
