Dubai Maritime City launches AED 140 million project

Dubai Maritime City (DMC), DP World’s purpose-built maritime center, has announced a major AED 140 million project to develop its infrastructure. The project is part of an ongoing effort to develop Dubai’s economy and improve the efficiency of the logistics sector.

The new infrastructure project, launched as part of DMC’s commitment to serve the modern business community and provide its customers with the best roads and facilities, will cement DMC’s position as a multi-purpose maritime hub and further enhance Dubai’s status as a global maritime hub.

Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem, Chairman and CEO of DP World, said: “The principles of innovation, continuous development and excellence are key pillars of Dubai Maritime City, which features a diverse range of industrial and commercial facilities. The timely launch of the infrastructure project is part of our commitment to drive growth in the UAE’s maritime sector. The new upgrade will certainly lead to a radical change.”

Mohammed Al Muallem, executive vice president of DP World, said: “The major road and infrastructure upgrade in Dubai Maritime City is part of our efforts to support Dubai Maritime Vision 2030, which aims to develop, regulate and improve the local maritime industry and strengthen Dubai’s position as a world-class, first-class international maritime hub. As the world’s leading multi-purpose maritime center, DMC serves the local and regional maritime community by providing all the necessary facilities to do business.”

The infrastructure project includes deep sewer, stormwater, fire, irrigation, potable water, telecommunications and roads. The sewer and storm sewer networks are served by a lift station. The sewage lifting station consists of an underground reinforced concrete “wet” well with a capacity of 360 m3 with a ground control station. The well is equipped with pumps with a capacity of 300 l/sec. The network consists of 6 km of sewage pipelines, 150 wells and chambers to connect the houses. Storm water lifting station serves a drainage network of 8 km long with 70 wells and 300 gully chambers.

The fire and irrigation network is served by a combined pumping station consisting of an underground reservoir of 460 m3 for firefighting and 1240 m3 for irrigation. They support a fire network of 38 hydrants and 5.5 km of pipeline, the irrigation tank supports 39 valve chambers and 6 km of pipeline. Other networks consist of 6 km of drinking water, 10 km of telecommunications and 7 km of roads.

The new DMC infrastructure will link Dubai Maritime City with the Mina Rashid area, which includes the QE2 Hotel, P&O Marinas and Marina Cubes.
