Dubai Maritime City construction on track
Staff Report

Dubai: Dubai Maritime City has reported significant progress in the construction of its new breakwaters in order to provide the Project and the adjacent Dubai Drydocks with new access channels and harbour basins.

The breakwaters project, which began in April 2003, is now 90 per cent complete and well on track for the final deadline of April 2006.

In addition to this, 92 per cent of the rockworks have been finished and the 25-year old breakwater has been removed, using a mixture of demolished and new rock material to create the new breakwater structures.

"We are pleased with the significant progress that has been made on the project and we are confident that we are able to meet the April 2006 deadline," said Amer Ali, project manager of Dubai Maritime City.

"With the breakwater and rockworks construction having begun nearly two years ago, the formation of the peninsula is now clearly visible and is taking shape.


Construction of the breakwaters consists of 4.4 million cubic metres of rock and 38,000 units of 15 tonne concrete armour. The removal of the breakwaters consists of 1.25 million cubic metres of rock and 27,500 units of 15 tonne concrete armour.

When completed, Dubai Maritime City will serve as the world's most comprehensive maritime complex located on a 216-hectare man-made peninsula between Port Rashid and the Dubai Dry Docks, and surrounded by the waters of the Arabian Gulf.

Dubai Maritime City will be a 216-hectare manmade peninsula and will create an iconic multi-dimensional maritime centre providing a unique world-class environment for the global maritime community.

Dubai Maritime City will be the world's largest maritime development and will be located on a manmade peninsula measuring 25 million square feet.

The first development of its kind, Dubai Maritime City will offer world-class facilities to maritime businesses in the region and worldwide.

It will be the hub for six large and diverse sectors: marine marketing, management, services, recreation, education, ship design and manufacture.

Dubai Maritime City starts 3.5 km quay walls construction

Dubai Maritime City has signed a contract with Van Oord/Belhasa Six JV for the construction of 3.5 km of quay walls with water depths of up to 10m at high tide.
United Arab Emirates: Tuesday, March 07 - 2006 at 13:40 GMT+4


Amer Ali, Project Manager of Dubai Maritime City.


The completion of the quay wall is expected to take 20 months, and will be conducted in a phased manner starting with the industrial precinct. Other construction phases of the industrial precinct includes preparation of the ship lift area, which is ongoing. The quay wall of the industrial precinct will be finalized by the end of the year when other phases will follow.

The area is cordoned by walls and is planned around two separate basins around 12 to 14 metres deep. The first one will be a rectangular shipyard basin measuring approximately 600m long by 450m wide. Berthing facilities are provided to the North, South and East of the site and two shiplifts of 6000 tonne capacity and 3000 tonne capacity will be provided to the West of the basin.

'The quay walls mark a new phase in the Dubai Maritime City project and we are pleased with the rapid progress of construction'



said Amer Ali, Project Manager of Dubai Maritime City. 'The peninsula is now taking shape and the quay walls are an important step forward in the overall construction of the industrial precinct.

A slipway or boat ramp, will be provided in the South East corner while a finger pier, for the removal of smaller boats, will be located at the East end of the site. In addition, there will also be sufficient access and storage to the rear of the quay walls for equipment and materials to be used in boat repair and manufacture.

The second basin will be oval, measuring approximately 400m long and 300m at its widest point. The quay walls will be provided at the edge of the marina with a water depth of between 5 and 9 metres. Whilst the basins are linked by an access channel approximately 500 m long.

All quay walls have been designed as pre-cast concrete block on a rock foundation, with the exception of the half a kilometer stretch of area surrounding the ship lifts, which have been designed as sheet piled quay walls in order to accommodate the shiplift mechanisms.

When completed, Dubai Maritime City will serve as the world's most comprehensive maritime complex located on a 216-hectare man-made peninsula between Port Rashid and the Dubai Dry Docks, and surrounded by the waters of the Arabian Gulf.

87 per cent of reclamation work completed in Dubai Maritime City

Dubai Maritime City announced that reclamation work for its man-made peninsula has reached 87% of its total reclamation work, in order to meet the January 2007 deadline.
United Arab Emirates: 1 hour, 37 minutes ago


Dubai Maritime City.

Infrastructure work is expected to start in a few months on the reclaimed area and will be completed in stages.

The total volume of reclaimed (dredged sand) material is now over 30 million cubic meters spread over a land area of approximately 216 hectares. The reclamation procedure started in April 2003; this is undertaken using sea-going trailer suction dredgers to recover sand, which is either 'bottom dumped' or 'rainbowed' by pumping sand from dredgers, or discharged by pipeline into its final resting place.

Commenting on the level of progress of the project, Amer Ali, Project Manager of Dubai Maritime City said:

'Reclamation work for Dubai Maritime City is well underway and runs parallel to the ongoing construction of the peninsula's breakwaters. The depth of sand placed for reclamation is 12 meters from seabed level to finished ground level at +4/+6 meters, which accounts to a total of 18 meters in total.'



Three or four compaction rigs are used across the newly reclaimed land to compress the sand. These work incessantly using two 20 meter long steel vibrator probes which are lowered into the ground in order to achieve compression.

Ground improvement works began last December following technical trials to verify treatment methods down to 18 meters, below the finished level of the reclamation area.

When completed, Dubai Maritime City will serve as the world's most comprehensive maritime complex located on a 216-hectare man-made peninsula between Port Rashid and the Dubai Dry Docks, and surrounded by the waters of the Arabian Gulf.

I wonder if there are renders of the other areas aswell.
What do they need all this office space for though? I would have thought 1 or 2 towers would be sufficient.

Dubai Maritime casts the first Quay Wall block

Dubai Maritime City sets a new milestone with the casting of the first pre-cast block for its quay walls in the first week of April 2006.
United Arab Emirates: 1 hour, 32 minutes ago


Dubai Maritime casts the first Quay Wall block

This procedure was carried out for the first time with concrete produced at the project site, using the site's batching facilities, and marks significant progress in the development of the Dubai Maritime City industrial precinct - the first phase of the overall project development.

This is the first step in the construction of the quay wall of the industrial precinct and includes the preparation of the ship lift area which will be finalized by the end of the year when other phases will follow. The 20-month construction process for the entire quay wall will require the casting of over 10,000 blocks to form the 3.5 km quay wall.

This is a vital stage in the project and is testimony of the way Dubai Maritime City is now taking shape. When completed, Dubai Maritime City will serve as the world's most comprehensive maritime complex located on a 216-hectare man-made peninsula between Port Rashid and the Dubai Dry Docks, and surrounded by the waters of the Arabian Gulf.

Current construction stage includes the completion of the mobilization of the marine equipment and will commence block placing by mid May 2006. The Quay Wall at Dubai Maritime City will form the ship yard docking and wet berth areas, all of which are critical to the successful completion of the project.

All quay walls have been designed as pre-cast concrete block on a rock foundation, with the exception of the half a kilometer stretch of area surrounding the ship lifts, which have been designed as sheet piled quay walls in order to accommodate the shiplift mechanisms.
