ABS certification for Asry tailshaft repairs.
Manama: Bahrain-based Asry, a leading regional ship and rig repair yard, has been certified by the American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) for cladding and welding of tailshafts.
ABS carried out a survey of Asry facilities and associated quality procedures in June and approved the yard for the certification based on the results of that survey.
In a statement yesterday, the yard said the certification affirms that tailshaft repairs done by it are carried out in accordance with the standards and rules of ABS, which is one of the leading global classification societies for quality assurance in marine-related facilities.
Asry's health, safety, security, environment and quality senior manager Adel Boutari said the approval was a strong endorsement of the yard's ability to repair and rebuild tailshafts - a top priority for ship-owners.
He said Asry was one of the pioneers in the Middle East to acquire the technology and expertise required to attain the certification.
