Dubai Maritime City progressing fast

Progress at Dubai Maritime City continues at full pace, with construction of quay walls at the east and west side now completed.

Progress at Dubai Maritime City continues at full pace, with construction of quay walls at the east and west side now completed. This latest development is a further step towards the planned relocation of Jadaf Dubai — one of the oldest ship repair yards in the Arabian Gulf — to Dubai Maritime City.

“The construction phase of the quay walls is one of the pivotal steps in our overall development, aimed at facilitating easy access, conformity and fulfilment of our industry requirements,” said Amer Ali, project manager, Dubai Maritime City.

“We are in the midst of the finalising the construction phases of the ship basin, and the basic infrastructure for the shiplift and ship transfer area.”

Approximately 10,000 concrete blocks have now been laid for the quay wall, at a pace of 40 to 45 blocks per day. When completed, Dubai Maritime City will offer comprehensive maritime facilities across 227 hectares of man-made peninsula between Port Rashid and Dubai Dry Docks.

“With the relocation of Jadaf Dubai to the Maritime City, we are confident that we will be able to offer the maritime community world-class services and the best facilities,” added Ali. “The new purpose-built facilities will extend a unique opportunity to a number of companies currently operating at Jadaf Dubai to expand their operations.”
