Tasneef showcases key achievements   

Gulf Today - 20 March, 2017

Emirates Classification Society ‘Tasneef’ recently showcased its key 2017 first quarter achievements at the Naval Defence Exhibition and Conference 2017 (Navdex) in Abu Dhabi.

The event also provided the opportunity for Tasneef to establish strategic partnerships with similar organisations exhibit its projects and connect with customers.

Tasneef made significant headway strengthening its industry relationships at the event, agreeing on future cooperation with classification societies such as the British maritime classification society “Lloyd’s Register”, the American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) and the Italian classification society (RINA).

The first ‘Arialah’ vessel was also commissioned at the event, for which Tasneef had developed the standards for building the vessel, from planning through to construction and its first sea trail. The ‘Arialah’ project represents an important milestone for Tasneef as a strategic partner for the national shipping industry that supports a wide range of maritime sectors such as fishing boats and yachts to the largest oil and gas exploration platforms exported all over the world.

A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was also signed during Navdex between Tasneef and Tawazun Safety, Security and Disaster Management City ‘Jaheziya’. During this two-year MoU, Tasneef will provide its expertise in safety and training for all Jaheziya training programmes. The event also witnessed Tasneef handing over the ISO quality management system certificate (ISO 9001:2015) to Abu Dhabi Autonomous Systems Investments, the first company in the autonomous system industry to receive the certificate.

The Floating Seahorse project was showcased by Tasneef at Navdex, featuring floating villas that are unique feats of architecture and engineering, and which combine luxury yachting and water housing development. Tasneef has already overseen the construction standards of these villas and is currently working on developing pioneering engineering standards, representing a world first for architecture and engineering. This project is carried out in partnership with UAE regulatory authorities in the navigation and maritime transport sector.

Eng. Rashed Al Hebsi, CEO of Tasneef, emphasised, “The Emirates Classification Society Tasneef empowers a number of UAE industrial and strategic sectors, through the development of Emirati technical expertise and standards. Today, we have established ourselves as setting a new benchmark for the UAE marine industry’s development, having developed the Sahara Notation for vessels operating in warm waters. Our organisation also issues certificates of compliance to the UAE Yacht Code, the first of its kind in the world, which is issued by the Federal Authority for Land and Maritime Transport. Tasneef is certified to issue inspection and technical examination certificates in the GCC and many Arab countries. Today, we provide expertise, quality standards and business assurance certificates that are essential for the advancement of the global competitiveness of the UAE industrial and commercial sectors.”

Al Hebsi adds, “Our first quarter results have provided much cause for optimism this year compared to last year, demonstrating remarkable progress and diversified projects serving multiple sectors.”
