Abu Dhabi Ports has completed an AED1 billion (US$272.25 million) expansion project covering the infrastructure and services of its Fujairah Terminals maritime hub.
The completion of the expansion works, which commenced three years ago, will increase the terminal’s general cargo throughput to 1.3 million tonnes, incorporate a new multi-purpose area of 25,000 square metres for general cargo and Ro-Ro services, and increase container capacity to 720,000 TEUs within a total area of 110,000 square metres.
In addition, the quay wall has been extended from 760 to 1,000 metres and the approach has been deepened from 12 metres to 15 metres to enable the port to handle larger vessels.
