Halul Offshore Services Company, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Milaha, won the prestigious Seatrade ‘Offshore Marine Award for Owners & Operators’ at the Seatrade Maritime Awards ceremony for the Middle East, Indian Subcontinent, and Africa which was held in Dubai on October 19th, 2015.
The award, which Halul also won in 2013, came in recognition of the company’s operational and financial success despite the current challenges in the offshore marine services market. A high-level delegation from Milaha and Halul attended the ceremony, which included a pre-dinner reception followed by a gala dinner.
Commenting on the award, Milaha’s President and CEO Mr. Abdulrahman Essa Al-Mannai said: “We are honored to have been recognized by Seatrade and the maritime community at large, especially during such a challenging time for the offshore industry. Halul is an integral part of our group’s vision to become a globally-recognised player in the maritime services sector, and its success is a recognition for the entire group.”
For his part, Halul’s CEO Vivek Seth, who received the award, added: “This recognition by Seatrade and our peers in the industry would not have been possible without the concerted efforts of our wonderful team at Halul who have worked demonstrated on a daily basis the highest levels of commitment to operational and environmental safety. I am confident that Halul will be able to continue its success story in the future.”
Now in their 12th year, the Seatrade Maritime Awards were attended by more than 800 leaders and senior executives from the maritime sector, and are considered an annual highlight in the regional maritime calendar. The award winners are chosen by an independent panel of judges based on a set of fair and transparent criteria.
