Nakilat – Keppel Offshore & Marine (N-KOM) the joint-venture shipyard between Qatar’s Nakilat and Keppel Offshore & Marine has signed a landmark agreement with the Angelicoussis Group of Companies to be the preferred shipyard for ship repairs in the Middle East. The agreement applies to all vessels operating under the Group’s three ship management companies. N-KOM is located at Erhama Bin Jaber Al Jalahma Shipyard, in Ras Laffan, State of Qatar.
Maran Gas Maritime’s LNG carrier was the first vessel to be drydocked at the shipyard when it commenced operations five years ago and since then, the shipyard has gone on to service thirteen LNG carriers and tankers from Maran Gas and Maran Tankers.
Nakilat Managing Director Eng. Abdullah Al Sulaiti said, “The Angelicoussis Group has been an important partner in Nakilat’s expansion and growth over the years. We are delighted to see our long-standing partnership continue to grow with the signing of this fleet agreement and we are confident of providing Maran with quality ship repair services for their fleet of vessels. Our world-class Erhama Bin Jaber Al Jalahma Shipyard in Ras Laffan remains demonstrative with its state-of-art facilities that it is the premier choice when it comes to ship building, repairs and maintenance.”
With over 110 vessels, the Angelicoussis Group of Companies owns and operates the largest fleet of vessels in Greece.
“We are very satisfied with the high quality of repairs executed by N-KOM for our vessels and are pleased to be extending our association with the Nakilat family through yet another strategic venture. We look forward to work with their experienced team of professionals in maintaining our fleet of vessels,” said Angelicoussis Group of Companies CEO Mr. John Angelicoussis.
