DP World unveils the first phase of plans to upgrade Dubai's Al Hamriya Traditional Port

DP World, UAE Region announce  completion of the first phase of the Al Hamriya port development plans aimed at modernising and upgrading the port to meet customers and fishermen’s growing needs.

The first phase now opened includes the upgrading of 1 million square feet of yard, which has been paved, metal fenced, and gated. These open yards  are now available for lease for traders and logistics companies.

Details of the next phase of the project were unveiled by Mohammed Al Muallem, Senior Vice President and Managing Director, DP World, UAE Region, Ghanem Al Abbar, Deputy Director, Al Hamriya Port, at a media roundtable

The second phase includes a modern facility for the exclusive use of the fishing industry at the port. Construction work has already begun on the facility and is due to be completed this year. The development will create a new 1,650-metre long wharf with a capacity to accommodate 190 fishing boats.

The changes will strengthen Al Hamriya Port’s traditional capability and leverage the strategic location of the port in the centre of Dubai.

Khalifah Sultan, Director, Al Hamriya Port, said:
“Al Hamriya plays a key role in facilitating non-containerised cargo movements between Dubai and countries in the Gulf, South Asia and East Africa. It also serves the local fishing industry. The current upgrade plans are aimed at delivering sustainable value to our customers through operational innovation.”
