Drydocks World and Maritime World marked a key milestone in achieving environmental excellence at the steel cutting ceremony for the Middle East’s first LNG powered harbour tug ‘Elemarateyah.’ Held in Drydocks World’s state-of-the-art steel fabrication centre, the beginning of this project sets a regional first and demonstrates Drydocks World’s innovative approach to providing maritime and energy sector solutions.

This landmark undertaking represents a major breakthrough in the future of green technology and sets the course towards a green economy for sustainable development. The large global reserves of gas and the energy efficiency of LNG fuel, compounded by stringent emissions standards, positions LNG as a commercially viable opportunity. LNG fuel has almost double the energy content of MDO fuel, with LNG approximately reducing emissions of NOx by 85% and CO2 by 25%. LNG as an alternative energy source is gaining momentum as the ‘fuel of the future’ among the global maritime community and Drydocks World strives to be a pioneer in implementing this green technology throughout their facilities, wholeheartedly supporting the Government of Dubai’s environmental initiatives.
