Trident extends its underwater servicing capabilities

Trident, a subsidiary of the technology group Wärtsilä, is strengthening its underwater-related servicing capabilities with the opening of a new diving centre facility in Fujairah, United Arab Emirates. This expansion into a major global shipping region will enhance Wärtsilä’s ability to serve its global customers with underwater repairs, refurbishments and maintenance. By performing this work below the waterline using fully trained technician divers, the need to dry dock the vessel is eliminated, thereby significantly reducing costs and avoiding interruptions to the vessel’s operations. The UAE centre became fully operational in February 2019.

“Our certified technicians can perform safe, reliable, and cost-effective repairs either underwater or afloat. Furthermore, we can assess repair requirements with thorough underwater inspections by our specialist teams. This adds considerable customer value since it increases the vessel’s operational efficiency while minimising its downtime,” says William Winters, Managing Director of Trident – a Wärtsilä Company.

Wärtsilä already has strong underwater servicing capabilities in Europe through its acquisition of the Trident Group in February 2018, and its subsequent acquisition of the Spanish underwater services company Burriel Navarro later that year. This latest expansion into the Middle East shipping region extends the company’s global footprint in this specialist field.
