General – Crewboats
Grandweld Shipyards Dubai has signed a landmark contract with Jana Marine Services to build five 42m GrandExtreme crew boats.
This order brings the total number of vessels built by Grandweld for Jana Marine to twelve vessels, with Grandweld previously having built seven vessels for Jana Marine, including four crewboats, one work vessel and two harbour tugs.
Grandweld is part of Stanford Marine Group which is wholly owned by Thalassa Investments. Thalassa Investments is 46.7% owned by Goldilocks Investment Company Limited, an ADGM company owned by Eshraq Investments, a public company listed on Abu Dhabi Securities Exchange.
Jamal Abki, General Manager of Grandweld Shipyards said: “Customers only return when they see great value in the products, and we are very pleased to have achieved this again with Jana Marine. Grandweld has delivered the majority of crewboats to this region, with the key reason being that we build and design the best crewboats for the market.”
Mohammed Al Subaie, Managing Director of Jana Marine said: “We have always been highly impressed with Grandweld’s ability to deliver quickly and on-time without compromising quality. Prompt delivery, an excellent design, competitive pricing, and our long relationship built on trust made Grandweld the clear choice. The GrandExtreme design will differentiate Jana’s crewboat fleet in the crewboat market, as it has proven capabilities, reliability, and quality we always see from Grandweld, with the addition of added comfort and space for personnel.”
