Dubai: Goltens today confirmed that it has leased a 23,000sq meter plot in Dubai Maritime City in order to develop a ship repair facility. The contract, for Industrial Precinct plots 6 and 7, will see occupancy of the area for 25 years.

Pointing out that the company is the first to sign up for a plot in Dubai Maritime City - Industrial Precinct  (DMC), Goltens Worldwide Services President Paul Friedberg said, "Finalising our agreement with the ship repair yard, Drydocks World, Jadaf Dubai, we can embark on building a new facility to consolidate all of our services in an optimum fashion under one roof, introduce some new services and provide additional capacity for future expansion. Despite a global shipping recession, there is a steady flow of ship repair activity and business. Our new workshop and repair/maintenance center will be our hub for the Middle East."

The 2.27 million square metre Dubai Maritime City - Industrial Precinct is divided into the Maritime Centre, the Industrial Precinct, The Academic Quarter, the Marina District, the Harbour Residence, and the Harbour Offices. The Maritime Centre District is the centrepiece of Dubai Maritime City and will serve as an international hub for maritime business.  [20/08/10]
