|| Al Ain International Group's Abu Dhabi MAR to invest in German shipbuilding firm

abudhabi germanAbu Dhabi MAR, a holding company based in Abu Dhabi, has entered into a strategic partnership with the German company ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems.

The partnership involves the establishment of a 50:50 joint venture for the construction of naval surface ships. In addition, the agreement will allow Abu Dhabi MAR Group to move into the mega-yachts, repairs and ships' components businesses. To this end Abu Dhabi MAR Group plans to acquire a majority 80% stake in each of the companies Blohm + Voss Shipyards, Blohm + Voss Repair, and Blohm + Voss Industries.
