Abu Dhabi Ports takes control of Fujairah

Abu Dhabi Ports has signed a 35-year concession to develop and manage the Port of Fujairah, taking over from Dubai-based DP World, whose contract expired at the UAE port a couple of months ago.

Abu Dhabi Ports will dredge to get berths down to 16.5 m alongside. It will also add another 1 km of quayside and construct 300,000 sq m of extra storage yard space.

The Port of Fujairah’s capacity is expected to reach 1m teu and 700,000 tonnes of general cargo by 2030, Abu Dhabi Ports predicted.
