Abu Dhabi Ports Company (ADPC) Abu Dhabi Ports Company (ADPC) has invested more than AED 27 million in the Al Gharbia region of Abu Dhabi over the last year. ADPC has five ports in the region; Marfa, Al Sila, Sir Bani Yas, Mugharrag, and Delma. As part of its remit as master developer of the non-oil and gas maritime assets in the emirate, ADPC is leading a program of investment in each area designed to boost local industries and support the port communities.
The region is an area of exceptional natural beauty occupying a vast area of 60,000 square kilometers - 60% of the total area of Abu Dhabi, with a coastline stretching for 350 kilometers. Rich in natural resources such as palm trees, pearls, oil, gas and solar energy, Al Gharbia contributes 45% of the emirates GDP.
Overall in 2013, ADPC invested over AED 27 million in the region, including AED 7.5 million in Mugharrag Port, AED 17 million at Marfa Port and most recently AED 2.5 million for the first phase of development at Delma Port. More investment is planned for the year ahead, as the development plans for ports in the region progress to the next stage.
Mohamed Juma Al Shamisi, CEO ADPC said: "Our ports in the Western region play a very significant role in each of their respective communities. The ports provide a valuable source of livelihood and offer enormous business and leisure potential for the future.
"In time, each of these ports will be contributing significantly towards the Abu Dhabi Economic Vision 2030. As a result, we are working in consultation with the community and key stakeholders to assess current facilities and to ensure the investment is as strategic as possible, while supporting the traditional culture and values of each location." In Mugharrag Port, ADPC's investment has improved the gate and entrance security, enhanced the fendering along the quay walls, built a new marine slipway for a small landing craft and has upgraded the facilities for ferries operating between the mainland and Delma Island.
The development work in Marfa Port is being split into two phases. The first which started in 2013 will focus on the port facilities, installing floating pontoons for the fishing community and improving coastal protection with dredging and reclamation work. The second phase of the development, will focus on the landside infrastructure and new marina facilities, including a fisherman's association, fish-market, caf?, restaurant and small supermarket. There will be retail units for maintenance businesses, boat parking, a shaded dry dock area for boat maintenance and around 240 new berths for boats.
Finally, the first phase of development work at Delma Port will boost the existing facilities for local fishermen and improve the provisions for water sports. A second phase of development work will focus on building a new concrete wharf for heavy loads, while floating pontoons will create a marina setting for 280 boats and a passenger terminal for local commuters.
