ADPC and TDIC behind development that will “support ongoing tourism projects”
A new logistics port has been opened by Adu Dhabi Ports Company (ADPC) and Tourism Development and Investment Company (TDIC), as Sir Bani, Yas Island.
Acting as a mid-way point between the mainland ports of Jebel Dhanna and Mugharrag Port, the new Sir Bani port is equipped to “sufficiently support the ongoing tourism projects being developed on the island,” according to a press release.
The port will handle all TDIC construction materials and operational support. It has been constructed to allow for further development, according to the needs of TDIC.
“This new facility will help streamline business, contributing to the region’s economic and tourism development. We will continue with our ongoing commitment to provide excellent services in all the ports we look after,” said vice president of ADPC ports unit, Captain Mohamed Al Shamisi, at the opening on January 29.
Also in attendance were ADPC CEO Tony Douglas, ADPC CEO, and Jim Pringle, acting CEO for TDIC, along with Western Region Municipality general manager, Musabah Mubarak Al Marar and representatives from the Department of Transport (pictured).
“Sir Bani Yas Island is considered as one of the largest open natural reserves which the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan first laid its grounds and which Abu Dhabi’s leadership is continuing in his footsteps of developing it into one of the Emirate’s top touristic destinations. The new logistics port at Sir Bani Yas will efficiently contribute to the development and completion of the touristic projects at Sir Bani Yas Island,” commented Al Marar.
The port took two years to develop and is now fully operations, with three roll on/off ramps, a boat pontoon, and control office.
