Drydocks World wins 'Seatrade Award for Clean Shipping

posted on 12/05/2015: 2461 views

Drydocks World and Maritime World has received the Clean Shipping Award at the Seatrade Awards ceremony, held last week in London, for the Chariot Robotics technology implemented in the yard.

When Chariot Robotics machines for hull blasting were introduced, the technology instantly became a huge success both in the yard and with clients. Several studies were carried out at the start of the project to understand the technology and its implications in Drydocks World. Both these studies and the technology gave the confidence to invest in the robotics machines.

The equipment operations were modified to suit Drydocks World's environment with the yard increasing the number of robotics machines used to 20% of all maintenance and repair operations. The success of the group's approach in implementing Chariot Robotics technology is the outcome of the continuous study, ongoing development and the unlimited innovation that the group is consistently maintaining.

The company has incorporated Chariot Robotics machines into the yards operations to reduce pollution and increase productivity. This hydro-blasting method on a vessel's hull emits zero toxins to the environment and the eco-friendly enclosed blasting and painting sheds with dust and fumes extraction systems minimise air emissions through a grit recycling system that is capable of using 100% recycled steel grit.

Drydocks World strategy since 2012 aims to implement the concept of sustainable development in evolving future business, where the concept of sustainability is defined by the revolutionary changes in methods of dealing with environmental issues by finding solutions and planning the appropriate methods to overcome obstacles. %. - Emirates News Agency, WAM –
