Abu Dhabi, UAE: Rolls-Royce, a provider of power systems for the marine and aerospace industries, has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Abu Dhabi Ship Building (ADSB)—which specialises in the construction of frigates, mega-yachts, and ship repairs—to provide shipbuilding, repair, and refit services across the Gulf region.
The Rolls-Royce Partners With ADSB To Extend Naval Repair And Overhaul Services will cover fixed service rates for onsite service attendance, turnkey repair projects, and spare parts.
Leo Pantazopoulos, senior vice president, Rolls-Royce Marine, Asia and Middle East, commented: “By working with ADSB, located in the heart of the Gulf, we are strengthening our ability to provide regional governmental and commercial customers with access to skilled engineers and state-of-the-art facilities, allowing them to repair and overhaul their ships efficiently and with minimum downtime.”
The contract extends an existing relationship between the power systems provider, ADSB and the UAE Navy for both new builds and retrofits, and has the potential to lead to the development of advanced technological products such as equipment health monitoring as well as remote and autonomous vessels.
