MaK Middle East will be participating in the 9th edition of Seatrade Maritime Middle East, the region’s biggest maritime exhibition taking place from the 29th of October to the 31st of October at the Dubai World Trade Centre.
The direct distributer of Caterpillar Inc’s medium speed engine brands; MaK, CM and EMD, and Napier and KBB turbochargers; will be showcasing its products and business model at the event for the first time, after establishing itself in Dubai in 2017.
MaK Middle East has opened a dedicated facility in Dubai Maritime City and provides engine maintenance and component servicing in the workshop and on-board vessels berthing and trading in the region.
The company also serves as a base for the supply of spare parts and components used for repair, maintenance, upgrading and refurbishment of vessel, rig and power plant engines.
Service engineers have been transferred from Caterpillar’s Singapore and UK operations into the Dubai hub and turbocharger engineers and technicians are trained and certified at the Napier factory in Lincoln UK and the KBB factory in Bannewitz, Germany.
MaK Middle East said in a statement that its participation at Seatrade Middle East was aimed at supporting the Dubai Maritime Vision 2030.
“Dubai has exponential growth opportunities in the maritime sector with an established, integrated and vibrant industry. We are extremely pleased to be part of the largest maritime exhibition and conference in the region, reiterating our support for the UAE Maritime Vision 2030 aimed at developing new opportunities with the highest quality and excellence standards,” said Alan Naisby, Managing Director of MaK Middle East and MaK Asia.
