Work Continues at Dubai Maritime City

Monday, June 19, 2006
According to reports, Dubai Maritime City has announced the launch of manufacturing process of new shiplifts of Jadaf Dubai -- one of the oldest ship repair yard in the Arabian Gulf - which is currently located at Dubai Creek. The shift of Jadaf Dubai to Dubai Maritime City reflects the distinction of the Maritime City as a prestigious location and is expected to provide a major impetus to regional maritime trade. The relocation will also facilitate a number of companies operational at Jadaf Dubai to expand their operations. With its direct access to sea, vessels calling at Dubai Maritime City will not be limited by size, as is the case at Al Jadaf Dubai's current location where vessels are restricted because of bridge crossings. Dubai Maritime City is also going full steam ahead with setting up the new shiplift facilities, which will be commissioned by March 2007. Construction of the support structures for the new facilities is currently under way. To be manufactured by world-renowned shiplift specialist company Hydraudyne Rexroth, the City will incorporate two shiplifts side-by-side. One of the shiplifts will be 90m long and 25m wide and designed to lift vessels up to 3000 tonnes while the other will be 140m long and 30m wide and designed to lift boats of up to 6000 tonnes.

Both the shiplifts will be capable of 14m vertical travel and the platforms and vessels shall be raised and lowered by a series of winches and steel ropes along the length of the shiplifts. Source: AMEinfo
