Drydocks World, based in Dubai, has announced the signature of a memorandum of understanding (MoU) between Shell and Dubai Maritime City.

The two organisations are to explore various options for alternative sources of energy, such as LNG, in the UAE and the wider Middle East, North Africa and South Asia region.. The primary focus would be on exploring opportunities for LNG as a fuel, not only in the maritime markets but in other transport and power industries.

“We are privileged to have reached this understanding with Shell in an area of mutual and topical interest of developing sustainable and environment friendly sources of energy in the maritime sector. This is part of our Dubai Maritime Green Initiative, which seeks to develop and propagate viable and environment-friendly alternatives especially in the field of renewable energy and alternative fuels for improved fuel efficiency,” said His Excellency Khamis Juma Buamim, chairman of Drydocks World & Maritime World.

Representatives from Shell and DDW recently discussed the possibility of future business opportunities as well as the continuing cooperation in projects such as the building of the world’s largest turret mooring system for the floating LNG facility at DDW in Dubai.
