Dubai Maritime City Welcomes Dutch Shipping Major

Dutch shipping company, Rederij Waterweg is to establish an operational presence in the Dubai Maritime City, in a move described as a significant development for the recently-launched maritime complex.

Rederij Waterweg operates a large and modern fleet of workboats, working worldwide in numerous projects for the dredging industries, offshore wind farm builders and maintenance companies, and cable and pipeline companies.

The company's services are regularly called upon by governments, ship owners, shipyards, insurers, and other companies and organisations operating in the maritime sector.

The firm's presence in the Dubai Maritime City, which will serve as the firm's regional base, is being seen by the organisation as a major boost for its development.

Amer Ali, Project Manager, Dubai Maritime City was quoted by the Dubai Photo Media News Agency as observing that Rederij Waterweg's decision "is a testament of the strategic importance of the project".

“With Rederij Waterweg’s know-how in the industry, backed by their experienced and well-trained seamen, we are confident that the Dubai Maritime City will be soon be a major hub for the global maritime industry, offering one-stop-shop services and catering to all industry requirements," he noted.

The Dubai Maritime City is one of the business units within the Ports, Customs and Freezone Corporation, part of the government organisation that developed the man-made 'Palm Island', the Jebel Ali Free Zone, and the port operator DP World. Dredging at the site began in August 2003.

The complex caters for all types of ship and yacht repair, and it is intended that the city will house over 100 workshops and warehouses.
