Dr Sultan Ahmed Al Jaber, Minister of State and Chairman of Abu Dhabi Ports (ADP), has officially inaugurated Al Mirfa Port in the Western Region of Abu Dhabi.
“Abu Dhabi Ports, the developer, operator and manager of ports and Khalifa Industrial Zone in the Emirate, recently completed extensive redevelopment work at Al Mirfa Port, upgrading its infrastructure and facilities to better serve the community,” the company said in an announcement.
The redevelopment of Al Mirfa Port included a rock revetment to protect the port berths and the construction of a breakwater to guard the port’s basin from the force of strong water currents.
Floating pontoons were also established creating new berths to accommodate 140 fishing boats and leisure ferries.
“The development of the Western Region’s ports is a strategic priority and in line with our leadership’s directives of enhancing the region’s economic resources,” said Dr Sultan Ahmed Al Jaber.
The extensive redevelopment work is part of Abu Dhabi Ports’ commitment to diversifying the Emirate’s economy by supporting and serving local communities, ADP said in a statement.
