About Abu Dhabi Ship Building

//About Abu Dhabi Ship Building

At Abu Dhabi Ship Building (ADSB), one of the region’s leading shipyards, we have leveraged our historic relationship with the UAE Navy to develop innovative solutions for  customers across diverse sectors, while striving to expand our international footprint.

Our story began in 1996, spurred by the vision of H.H. Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces who understood the need of developing a home-grown world-class ship yard facility in Abu Dhabi to support the UAE Navy. We initially focused on naval repairs and refitting services and gradually expanded our expertise to include building sophisticated war ships like the Baynunah 70m Corvette.

Our portfolio of products and services now specializes in the construction, repair and refit of naval, military and commercial vessels.

We are fortunate to call Abu Dhabi home, and are in a highly strategic, centralized location in the Arabian Gulf region, between East and West. We have leveraged this position to consolidate our position as the leading ship builder and support contractor for all naval, military and commercial operators in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries.

A UAE based Public Joint Stock Company, we are proud to serve and support the UAE and the GCC’s military and commercial maritime sectors.
