Abu Dhabi Ship Building to deliver first vessel to UAE Navy in 2008

The Abu Dhabi Ship Building Company will deliver the first of four naval vessels comprising the US$500 million (Dh1.83 billion) Baynunah contract to the UAE Navy in 2008, the company's chief said. The first vessel is scheduled to be completed in 2008 and the other three will be ready at approximately six-month intervals following the first," William Saltzer, chief executive of ADSB, told Gulf News.



The contract was awarded in late 2003 and the first several months went into finalising the UAE Navy's selection of the major platform and combat system equipment. ADSB has also won its first naval defence deal in Oman and is bidding in some other GCC markets, he said. Rolls-Royce will supply the warship water jets for the Baynunah-class corvettes being built by Abu Dhabi Ship Building Company. Three Kamewa waterjets on each Baynunah-class corvette will help create a top speed of more than 30 knots, a statement from Rolls-Royce said yesterday. (The Emirates News Agency, WAM)
