Grandweld Shipyards has completed delivery of ‘ARADAH’, a 55m dive and maintenance support vessel (DMSV), especially built for ADNOC. The new state- of- the- art DMSV is the first from its class to be built by Grandweld Shipyards and will serve as the flagship to ADNOC offshore fleet operating in the region.

The vessel, equipped with 360 degree Schottel Rotatable Propulsion System, will serve dive and maintenance operations in Abu Dhabi offshore fields.

The vessel is also equipped with a subsea lifting crane of 70 Ton @ 14m capacity positioned at the aft of the vessel, capable of handling Deadweight Anchors, Mooring Buoys and SBM hoses.

The vessel is also equipped with two self-contained integrated diving systems complete with decompression chambers in order to facilitate under water diving operations. In addition to that, the vessel is equipped with external fire fighting capability to class 1. (3300 cubic meter per hour).

Grandweld has significant deliveries scheduled for 2012, which include a broad range of offshore vessels of both steel and aluminum, including Hybrid vessels, Harbor Tugs, Work Maintenance Vessels, Crew Boats, Service Boats, Anchor handling tug and supply vessels. This will position Grandweld as the largest shipbuilder in the Middle East with established shipyards in Dubai Maritime City and Al Jadaf.
