Abu Dhabi Ports (ADP) has completed the second phase development at Delma Port anchored by a new 315-metre quay wall for use by recreational and commercial vessels.

Aimed at extending the multipurpose port’s capability to benefit both the Al Dhafra region and the local community’s recreational, fishing and commercial needs, the project will further facilitate movement of landing craft vessels, passenger ferries, pleasure boats, and fishing boats.

A 315-metre quay wall was designed to accommodate up to 60 boats, along with the creation of a new protection breakwater to shelter the northern half of the harbour.

Captain Mohamed Juma Al Shamisi, group ceo of ADP, said: “Projects such as the ongoing development and evolution of the new Delma Port are vital to facilitating the economic growth of Delma Island and Al Dhafra region.

“By ensuring that Delma Port continues to serve the needs of the region’s maritime community and attract interest as an international destination, Abu Dhabi Ports is delivering on our leadership’s vision to establish our emirate as a top global maritime centre, one that is backed by streamlined ultra-modern services, infrastructure, and health, safety and quality standards.”

When phase one of the project was inaugurated in 2017, it featured a 103-metre long quay for a ferry terminal, a marina with 160 wet berths and 104 dry berths for fishing and recreational craft, a repair yard, an administration building, a fish market, and the Adnoc marine fuelling station, making it one of the largest multipurpose ports in Al Dhafra.
