Abu Dhabi Maritime, part of the AD Ports Group, has agreed to collaborate with ADNOC Distribution, an ADNOC Group subsidiary, and Abu Dhabi’s Department of Municipalities and Transport (DMT), to explore consumer-facing and industry-leading innovations to develop emirate’s coastal and marine locations.

The new agreement calls for Abu Dhabi Maritime and ADNOC Distribution to form a joint working team to explore three potential collaboration areas: an ADNOC fuel station at Rabdan Marina, fuel stations at future marinas in Abu Dhabi, and special services (floating fuel and grocery vessel). Customers will benefit from the proposed extra services, which will make refueling easier and more convenient.

His Excellency Dr. Salem Khalfan Al Kaabi, Director-General of Operational Affairs at DMT, said that “This agreement demonstrates the unwavering commitment of the DMT, represented by Abu Dhabi Maritime, to elevate Abu Dhabi’s coastal and marine locations.”
