Project Description

NMDC started on this project in September 2008. The works of the project consisted of dredging and reclamation for the new central areas of the Fujairah port, deepening of the then existing port to a depth of -15 meters and to dredge a complete new basin to a depth of -18 meters with some stockpiling of material to be used by the Fujeirah Municipality for their expansion project. 

Approximately 1,500,000 m3 was dredged for the increased depth of the breakwater berths and 4,900,000 m3 volume was dredged for the new port expansion. This project marked a new milestone for NMDC executing it outside the Abu Dhabi area triggering a big step towards our future development in such geographies. 


NMDC was awarded the site preparation works which laid the foundation for subsequent work contracts awarded.The scope includes; dredging, reclamation, segregation of material and installation of quay wall construction. 

The dredged materials (about 6 million m3) were used to reshape the Island and as fill material for this construction. 

Approximately 1,450 meters of precast Quay wall was installed.
