Duqm: Oman Drydock Company (ODC) successfully repaired a giant iron ore carrier 'Liwa Max' and 'Sohar Max', of Oman Shipping Company (OSC). The move strengthens a real and viable partnership between ODC and the government owned companies in the field of rendering repair and maintenance services and technical and logistic support to the giant vessels and fast ferries.
This cooperation comes as a step taken by two companies affiliated to ASYAD Group (Former, “Oman Global Logistic Group), which endeavours for achieving a global vision by means of the integration between both companies.
Eng. Abdul Rahman Al Hatmi, CEO of ASYAD Group noted that this partnership is one of the upshots of the logistics sector companies being under the same umbrella and as one of the group’s principle for development for the group as represented in the optimal utilisation of the available assets and resources to boost the economic and financial returns on the government investments. Moreover, Eng. Al Hatmi has highly praised the cooperation reached between ODC and OSC as the same has its positive reflections and impacts on both companies and will ultimately send an important message to the Logistic Sector about the powers and capacities of both companies, their competitive privileges and ambitions for future growth and hence, establish ASYAD’s future concept towards a global approach.
Stephan Aumann, CEO of the ODC is convinced that the professional level of cooperation with OSC is deemed as one of the successful sustainable business relations for ODC.
Aumann pointed out that winning the confidence of our highly valued clients, such as OSC in the company’s ability for magnetizing many giant vessels on both regional and international levels is one of the most important factors. ODC is proud serving OSC since it has an impressing fleet comprising of 51 vessels while persisting in rendering a sustainable repair and maintenance service for this big company, which helps both of the companies win an international reputation in the global logistics market in this regard.
The first cooperation between both companies was marked by the reception of the giant LNG Carrier "Muscat" in October 2011 and since that time, ODC could receive many vessels and tankers such as "Manah," "Saham," "Mirbat," "Al Amerat" and "Sumail".
