Abu Dhabi Ports (ADP) has started operations at Fujairah Terminals – located in the East coast of the United Arab Emirates – after signing a 35-year concession agreement with the Port of Fujairah earlier this year. 

Captain Mohamed Juma Al Shamisi, the chief executive of Abu Dhabi Ports, said: “As we mark the official commencement of commercial operations, we express our pride, clear commitment and intention to bring the full breadth of our experience to the table; whether it is container, Ro-Ro, bulk, cargo or cruise, supporting expansion into the Indian sub-continent and East African markets, which is set to accelerate the economic and social development of the emirate, eventually becoming a strategic and vital artery for international trade.”

Abu Dhabi Ports also said in its announcement that they have entered a concession agreement with the Port of Fujairah which will grant their exclusive rights to develop port infrastructure, including deepening of berths to accommodate bigger vessels. ADP will also manage the port’s operations as part of the 35-year concession agreement and they already plan new investments in infrastructure and equipment.

In the past decade, the port has tripled its berths to nine and increased shipping traffic more than eight-fold, with the port handling more than 2,200 vessels last year.
