Dubai Maritime City (DMC), DP World’s purpose-built maritime hub, has announced the launch of a major project to develop its infrastructure at a cost of $40 million. The project is part of ongoing efforts to boost Dubai’s economy and enhance the efficiency of the logistics sector.
The new infrastructure project, launched as part of DMC’s commitment to serving the modern business community and providing its customers with the best roads and facilities, will cement DMC’s position as a multi-purpose maritime hub, and further strengthen Dubai's status as a global maritime centre.
Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem, Group Chairman and Chief Executive Officer DP World said: “The principles of innovation, constant 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 enhance the growth of the UAE’s maritime sector. The new upgrades will certainly bring about a radical change.”
Mohammed Al Muallem, Executive Vice President, DP World said: “The major upgrade to the roads and infrastructure at Dubai Maritime City is part of our efforts to support the Dubai Maritime Vision 2030, which aims to develop, regulate and enhance the local maritime industry.
"As the world’s leading, multipurpose maritime centre, DMC caters to the local and the regional maritime community by providing all the necessary facilities to conduct their businesses.”
The infrastructure project includes developing networks for deep sewage, stormwater, fire, irrigation, potable water, telecommunication, and roads.
The new DMC infrastructure will integrate DMC with the Mina Rashid area that includes the QE2 Hotel, P&O Marinas and Marina Cubes.
