UAE’s leading EPC contractor NMDC Group has signed a MoU with AD Ports Group, a leading facilitator of global trade, logistics and industry, to further boost co-operation on international projects with the full support of its expertise and capabilities.
As part of the agreement, NMDC and AD Ports Group will continue to work closely together on future international projects, utilizing NMDC’s world-class engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) and marine dredging capabilities to enable AD Ports Group to successfully continue to undertake large scale international projects.
The agreement is in line with the objectives of the national strategy for industry and advanced technology, said NMDC Group CEO Engineer Yasser Zaghloul after signing the deal with AD Ports Managing Director and Group CEO Captain Mohamed Juma Al Shamisi in the presence of leading figures across maritime, ports and shipping sectors.
This MoU, he stated, will enable NMDC to explore new opportunities for collaboration and expand the range of innovative solutions it can provide.
"We plan to leverage our full capabilities, resources and exceptional workforce to fully support AD Ports Group to achieve even greater success in the years to come," he added.
Captain Mohamed said the signing of this MoU at the International Association of Ports and Harbors (IAPH) Conference 2023 in Abu Dhabi was a significant milestone in its relationship with NMDC.
"It demonstrates our shared commitment to working together to strengthen the global maritime industry and support the economic growth of the UAE, in line with our wise leadership’s vision. We look forward to collaborating on a range of global projects and initiatives in the coming years to further strengthen our position at the forefront of international infrastructure development," he added.
In June last year, NMDC and AD Ports Group had established a joint venture, Safeen Survey and Subsea Services, to conduct offshore surveys and subsea services in the UAE, across the GCC region, as well as in select international markets.
The company offers a unique portfolio comprising offshore surveys (geophysical and geotechnical), trenching, and dredging support services.
Additionally, NMDC provides integrated subsea services, such as commercial diving services, remotely operated vehicles, and unmanned inspections vessels, along with the provision of customized, cost effective and innovative solutions tailored for offshore operations related to the oil & gas and renewable energy sectors.-TradeArabia News Service
