Saudi Arabia state-owned tanker operator Bahri has committed to a fleet repair framework agreement for their assets to be repaired and drydocked at the Bahrain-based maritime repair and fabrication facility, Arab Shipbuilding and Repair Yard (ASRY) into 2019.
“ASRY has been a long-term partner of Bahri, having repaired many of their vessels successfully. We’re pleased to take this next step with them and we look forward to this agreement allowing our fleet to be repaired with even greater ease and in greater numbers in the future,” said Mideast Ship Management president Abdel Aziz Sabri, from Bahri’s shipmanagement arm.
‘It’s very encouraging to enhance our relationship with such a prestigious owner as Bahri. This agreement allow us to offer the best value and flexibility for drydock availability, prices, and repairs and continue to deliver high standards of safety, quality and schedule. We understand the downward pressure being faced by owners, and encourage these collaborative ways of supporting fleets both regionally and globally,” said ASRY chief executive Andrew Shaw.
