Dubai Maritime City (DMC), DP World’s multipurpose maritime zone, has launched a $38.11 million project to develop its infrastructure as the emirate seeks to strengthen its status as a global maritime center.
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 help to cement DMC’s position as a multipurpose maritime hub. The project is part of the ongoing efforts to boost Dubai’s economy and enhance the efficiency of the logistics sector.
The infrastructure project includes developing networks for deep sewage, stormwater, fire, irrigation, potable water, telecommunication, and roads. The new infrastructure project will integrate DMC with the Mina Rashid area that includes the QE2 Hotel, P&O Marinas and Marina Cubes.
“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 enhancing the growth of the UAE’s maritime sector. The new upgrades will certainly bring about a radical change.”
Commenting on the launch of the project, Mr. Mohammed Al Muallem, Executive Vice President of 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 and strengthen Dubai’s position as a world-class, premiere international maritime hub. As the world’s leading, multipurpose maritime center, DMC caters to the local and the regional maritime community by providing all the necessary facilities to conduct their businesses.”
