Dubai Maritime City Authority strengthens bunkering fleet to enhance services

15 Jul 2020

Dubai Maritime City Authority (DMCA) on Monday (13, July) said it has strengthened its bunkering fleet in Dubai waters as part of an advanced step towards the path of organizing, facilitating and enhancing maritime activity. 

The DMCA has revealed increasing the number of licensed vessels to 12 ships, for supplying fuel across the emirate’s territorial waters.

It explained that the decision was made in conjunction with the move to resume maritime operations in Dubai anchorage areas, including ship repair and maintenance operations and in full compliance with the controls applied to ensure the highest levels of security and safety of ship crew members and visitors.

“Strengthening the bunkering fleets represents a quality focused addition to the efforts aimed at providing guarantees for the return of momentum to the local marine sector, particularly in the present scenario,” said Mohammad Al Bastak Director of Marine Anchorage Operations Department.

He pointed out that the return of maritime operations in the landing areas for the ships strengthens confidence and offers a positive outlook of the promising opportunities available within the local maritime sector, which is based on advanced infrastructure, key legislation and world-class maritime and logistical capabilities that make it a safe and sustainable marine environment.

DMCA added that the decision to resume maritime activity across Dubai’s anchorage areas will enable ships based in the emirate’s territorial waters to have access to the ship husbandry services
