Fujairah Terminals, part of the Abu Dhabi Ports, has opened its newly expanded container terminal under the Dhs1bn programme for the development of multi-purpose terminal facilities within Fujairah Port.

The completion of the expansion work at Fujairah Terminals, which commenced three years ago, will increase the terminal’s general cargo throughput to 1.3 million tonnes, multi-purpose area of 25,000 sqm for general cargo and RoRo services, and increase container capacity to 720,000 TEU, 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, according to state-run news agency WAM.

Capable of accommodating the largest breakbulk vessels, the facility is equipped with extended bonded warehousing and covered storage capacity.

Fujairah Terminals offer a multipurpose facility located at Fujairah Port delivering a range of services covering containers, general cargo, cruise, RoRo, land lease and transhipment.

Sheikh Mohammed bin Hamad bin Mohammed Al Sharqi, Crown Prince of Fujairah, officially opened the Fujairah Terminals’ expansion programme on Sunday.

“The emirate of Fujairah has become a leading international maritime transport centre, due to the directives of Sheikh Hamad bin Mohammed Al Sharqi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Fujairah, as well as its strategic geographic location, enabling it to attract investment and support the national sustainable development process,” said Sheikh Mohammed bin Hamad.

The Fujairah Terminals facility also features a customer happiness centre, X-ray scanning and custom inspection zones, 600 square metre engineering workshop and an operations command centre.

The development of multi-purpose facilities at the port is in line with the Fujairah Strategic Plan 2040, that is aimed at enhancing the emirate’s role as a key centre to facilitate trade between GCC countries, India, the Red Sea and east Africa.

Founded in 2017 as a centre for international trade in the emirate of Fujairah within the UAE, Fujairah Terminals is part of Abu Dhabi Ports which is the owner and operator of 11 ports and terminals in the UAE and Guinea.

Earlier this month, the Abu Dhabi Securities Exchange said that it had listed $1bn of bonds issued by Abu Dhabi Ports. The 10-year bonds, with a primary listing on the London Stock Exchange, are rated A+ (stable) by S&P and A+ (stable) by Fitch, and were 4.5 times oversubscribed.
