Fujairah Terminals expansion reaches 1.3mn tonne milestone

Expansion increases terminal’s general cargo throughput as features multi-purpose area of 25,000sqm for general cargo and Ro-Ro services

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

The expansion has increased the terminal’s general cargo throughput has now increased to 1.3 million tonnes in addition to the development of a multi-purpose area of 25,000sqm for general cargo and Ro-Ro services. Container capacity has risen to 720,000 TEUs, with a total of 110,000sqm 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.

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

“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.
