About Oman Drydock Company.
Oman Drydock Company (ODC) is one of the largest and most modern ship repair yards throughout the world. Located in Duqm, in the Al Wusta region of Oman, ODC is strategically located on the southeast corner of the Arabian Peninsula outside the straits of Hormuz and is in close proximity to the busy regional trade routes traversing Oman’s coastline.
ODC was established in September 2006, by the Government of the Sultanate of Oman with 100% investment and was initially operated by South Korea’s Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering Company Limited (DSME). During end of 2016, the formal agreement between ODC and DSME expired, however the good relationship between ODC and DSME has remained.
ODC’s strategic location, climate, world-class shipyard facilities, and integrated services will provide ODC’s customers with great advantages and merit. ODC can serve owners/operators trading within the Arabian Gulf as well as those whose fleets transit east to west along the Omani coastline and the west coast of India.
The Port of Duqm is expanding and, once the new refinery has been built in Duqm, the port will become an attractive end port for many shipping lines in the oil business.
