N-KOM celebrates its 200th vessel at the shipyard

Shipyard says it's attracting major clients in the Middle East.


 Nakilat-Keppel Offshore & Marine has celebrated the completion of its 200th project.

The Qatar yard made repairs to the VLCC Janah Star from Vela International Marine.

The delivery of the vessel coincided with the shipyard’s third anniversary, since its opening in November 2010.

The facility has also successfully undergone a recertification process by the American Petroleum Institute for its ISO 14001 and ISO 18001 quality systems.


With comprehensive service offering and excellent infrastructure, the shipyard says it has made significant progress in capturing the regional maritime market and attracting major oil and gas clients in the Middle East and from around the world.

Abdullah Fadhalah Al Sulaiti, Chairman of N-KOM and Managing Director of Nakilat said the yard is very proud to celebrate the completion of its 200th project.

“N-KOM has positioned itself as a leader in ship repair well recognised by the regional maritime industry as a premium shipyard providing a full range comprehensive shipyard services,” Al Sulaiti said.

He says the milestone reaffirms the yard’s growing presence in the Middle East.

“We would not have been able to build up our capabilities so rapidly if not for the immense support we have received from HE the Minister for Energy and Industry Dr Mohammed Bin Saleh Al Sada. I would also like to express our deepest gratitude to Qatar Petroleum and the management, port staff and employees of Ras Laffan Industrial City for their full and continued support, and the same which we have received from our valued business partners.”
