Albwardy Damen, the joint venture shipyard in Sharjah, UAE, between the Damen Shipyards Group and UAE-based Albwardy Investment, has received a prestigious Superbrands 2018 Award from Superbrands Worldwide.
Albwardy Damen received its Superbrands Status and Superbrands Certificate from the Superbrands Council at a grand event held in the Hamriyah Free Zone in early February.
The awards ceremony was attended by representatives from Superbrands Middle East, a number of senior officials from the Hamriyah Free Zone Authority (HFZA), and representatives from the companies that operate in the HFZA that had also won awards.
Albwardy Damen brings Damen quality and technology to the UAE.
The main yard is located in the Hamriyah Free Zone, Sharjah, and offers the highest standards of modern ship construction and repair. Among its many facilities it features a covered build hall, a 5,200 tonne ship lift and eight dry berths, each 125 metres in length.
In 2017, it opened a new office and workshop facility in Dubai Maritime City to operate alongside its other facilities in Sharjah, Al Jadaf and Fujairah.
