DTA Maritime, an arm of shipowner and cash buyer Dubai Trading Agency, said it was honored to have been able to support the police in their quest, chief executive Flemming Jensen said.
“When Dubai police asked if DTA could provide a suitable vessel only a few days before the record-breaking event, we immediately confirmed that it would be an honour to partner up with the police in this connection.”
DTA Maritime provided the vessel and the logistical support. To ensure the record would be accepted by Guinness World Records, DTA contacted DNV GL and the United Arab Emirate’s Federal Transportation Authority, which immediately confirmed full support of the event.
