Other marine services offered


    Demucking & desloping services

N-KOM has collaborated with Al Haya Engineering to establish tank cleaning services for crude oil tankers. Through this collaboration, we are able to directly provide our clients with demucking and desloping services at Ras Laffan anchorage and Fujairah.

    LNG solutions

With our vast group engineering experience and resources, N-KOM can effectively undertake the following:

  1. ME-GI (Main Engine Gas Injection) conversion:
    ME-GI is the conversion of heavy fuel oil engines to run on clean fuel (e.g. LNG) in accordance with IMO ruling. The technology allows for significant reduction in greenhouse gas emissions while enhancing engine efficiency. Together with our partner M.A.N Diesel & Turbo, N-KOM will undertake its first ME-GI conversion project on a Q-Max LNG carrier in 2015, utilizing MAN Diesel’ & Turbo’s ME-GI (M-Type Electronically Controlled–Gas) technology.

  2. FSRU (Floating Storage Refining Unit) conversion
  3. Design & installation of LNG supply and/or transfer systems (e.g. STS)
  4. Design & construction of LNG bunker barges to support offshore installations
    Mobile repair squad (for anchorage/voyage repairs)

Our team of experienced and qualified engineers can be readily mobilized to undertake vessel inspections and carry out repairs such as motor chemical cleaning, BOG motor laser alignment and emergency repairs either at anchorage or during the vessel's voyage.

    Ferry Services

Having its own pilot boat gives N-KOM the flexibility to support towage activities at the shipyard and/or Ras Laffan port, as well as sea-trials and ferrying supplies to vessels in the vicinity.
