Abu Dhabi Ship Building (ADSB) will show its full support for the Bahrain Defence Force by sponsoring the 44th World Military Sailing Championship.
The world's largest military sporting competition is being hosted and organized by the Bahrain Defence Force with the assistance of the Bahrain Coast Guard.
ADSB is a Gold Sponsor for the mega sporting competition that will pit over 25 representatives from around the world against each other in more than 26 tournament categories.
ADSB Chairman Humaid Al Shemmari will present the company's services, capabilities and major achievements at the event. He will also highlight major Bahrain contracts such as the upcoming delivery of two 42m steel landing vessels for the Bahrain Navy and a refit program for the Ministry of Interior.
'We have been extremely privileged to have contracts from the Bahrain Defence Force for some 42m and 16m Landing Craft and also from the Ministry of Interior for a major refit program awarded to our company in the last 24 months,' he remarked.
ADSB finished two composite 'Seakeeper' fast landing craft for the Bahrain Navy ahead of schedule last year. It also refitted and upgraded 10 Patrol Boats for the Bahrain Coast Guard to extend the vessel's lifetimes by another 15 years.
The shipbuilder's newly-formed logistics company, Gulf Logistics and Naval Support (GLNS), will provide the Bahrain Coast Guard complete through-life service and maintenance support, he added.
