AUGUST 31, 2016 — Dubai headquartered Elcome International is supplying electrical switchboards, safety, monitoring and control systems for three vessels under construction at Abu Dhabi Ship Building (ADSB).
Elcome was selected for this newbuilding project after a rigorous technical and commercial evaluation by the shipbuilder. The scope of work included supply, installation and commissioning of main switchboards and electrical systems, bridge and engine room consoles, tank gauging and fire detection systems.
The three vessels are being built for a customer in the Middle East for delivery in 2017.
“These orders from ADSB represent a significant achievement in our growth as a major supplier for newbuilds as well as retrofits, and showcases our engineering and manufacturing capabilities,” said Jimmy Grewal, executive director of Elcome International. “We completed the production and factory acceptance tests (FAT) of the electrical systems in just 43 business days.”
Dr. Khaled Al Mazrouei, CEO of Abu Dhabi Ship Building, said: “Elcome is a proven partner in delivering quality systems for these new vessels. Both ADSB and Elcome are committed to delivering world-class support services and we are happy to be partnering with a team whose customer service is unparalleled in the marine industry.”
