he establishment of Abu Dhabi Ship Building (ADSB) was in line with the vision of H.H. Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed (Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces) to have a world-class facility in Abu Dhabi to support the UAE Navy.

The company boasts an impressive portfolio of build and refit projects that are collectively worth at least AED 4 billion. Moreover, the company is widely recognised for carrying out its projects in Steel, Aluminium Alloy and High Tech Composite Materials according to the most stringent international standards.

Scope of activities: Design, construction, repair, refit and conversion of naval and commercial ships in steel, aluminium and composite materials. Repair and upgrade of ship systems and components. Associated logistics and fabrication services.

Leveraging its highly strategic, centralised location in the Arabian Gulf region, ADSB is rapidly consolidating its position as the leading ship builder and support contractor for all Naval, Military and Commercial operators in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC).

ADSB has also built a global network of strategic partners from different countries, each offering a unique set of professional and technical expertise that complement ADSB's specialised maritime capabilities. ADSB's strategic partners have been carefully selected for their expertise, specialist knowledge and reputation in the design and build of Naval, Military and Commercial Ships.
