Fujairah Terminals said it has achieved a major milestone in its long-term AED1 billion ($272.2 million) port development programme with the completion of the project expansion works related to its multi-purpose terminal facilities.

Fujairah Terminals is a wholly-owned unit of Abu Dhabi Ports, the owner and operator of 11 ports and terminals in the UAE and Guinea, facilitating global trade and building capacity.

With this expansion, the terminal’s general cargo throughput has now increased to 1.3 million tonnes in addition to the development of multi-purpose area of 25,000 sq m for general cargo and Ro-Ro services.

Also the container capacity has risen to 720,000 TEUs, with a total of 110,000 sqm of container terminal area.

In addition, the quay wall has been extended from 760 to 1000 metres and the approach has been deepened from 12 metres to 15 metres to enable the port to handle larger vessels.

The northern emirate of Fujairah has become a leading international maritime transport centre due to its advanced infrastructure and its capacity to receive all sizes and categories of ships, tankers and shipments,' remarked Sheikh Mohammed bin Hamad bin Mohammed Al Sharqi, Crown Prince of Fujairah, after officially opening Fujairah Terminals’ expansion programme.

This in turn has enabled it to attract investment and support the national sustainable development process, he added.

Founded in 2017 as a strategic centre for international trade in the emirate, Fujairah Terminals is part of Abu Dhabi Ports, the region’s premier facilitator of logistics, transport, and trade.

Fujairah Terminals is now one of the Middle East’s most important economic, commercial, and logistics hubs, he added.
