Rebranded Abu Dhabi Ports marine subsidiary expands fleet

UAE port operator Abu Dhabi Ports has announced that it has renamed its subsidiary, Abu Dhabi Marine Services, to SAFEEN – meaning ships in Arabic, as part of a rebrand.

As part of expanding its fleet and improving services, SAFEEN has added a new tug boat named MAQTAA to its existing fleet of five tugs, five pilot boats, six speed boats, one buoy maintenance boat and two oil spill response boats. The company also plans to acquire three more tugboats by the end of 2016.

“The ISM certification coupled with our acquisition of the new tug boat mark the grand launch of our new brand, which gives utmost value to servicing our esteemed clients. These achievements prove that this makeover is about achieving substantial improvement in the capacity and quality of our marine services, which play a major role in the region’s maritime industry,” said Captain Mohamed Juma Al Shamisi, ceo of Abu Dhabi Ports.

Established in March 2013, Abu Dhabi Marine Services provides a comprehensive range of marine and ancillary quayside services to vessels calling at Abu Dhabi seaports in a safe, secure and efficient manner.
