Aug 05 2016

Nakilat-Keppel Offshore Marine (N-KOM) signed a fleet agreement with Samos Steamship (SS) during the recent Posidonia exhibition.

The Greek shipping concern was already an existing client of N-KOM, with several repairs undertaken to its tanker fleet to date.

Under the new fleet agreement, N-KOM will be the preferred shipyard in the Middle East for all SS vessel repairs.

Nakilat managing director, Eng Abdullah Fadhalah Al Sulaiti, said, “We are pleased to be strengthening our strategic partnership with our client Samos Steamship through the signing of this fleet agreement, during one of the largest international shipping events of the year no less.

“Nakilat has enjoyed successful long-standing partnerships with Greek shipping companies such as Maran Gas Maritime, and we look forward to the continued support from our Greek and other International clients to grow Qatar’s reputation as a maritime centre of excellence in the region,” he said.

SS managing director, Anastassios Tzamouranis, said, “We have been very satisfied with the high quality and timely repairs of our tankers by N-KOM over the years and are happy to further grow our partnership with this fleet agreement.”
