Maritime Hub Abu Dhabi launched to bolster maritime sector

Abu Dhabi Maritime, part of AD Ports Group, working in cooperation with the Integrated Transport Centre – Department of Municipalities and Transport (DMT), has announced the official launch of Maritime Hub Abu Dhabi.

This is a platform that reportedly aims to bridge the gap between public and private stakeholders to connect and strengthen the maritime sector.

The Maritime Hub was formed following extensive research and benchmarking against other leading maritime cities such as Singapore and France. Founded on three core strategic pillars – Connect, Create and Collaborate, the Hub aims to harness collective synergies through cooperation across public and private sectors.

A committee composed of representatives from various segments of both the public and private maritime sectors will lead working groups, contributing innovative ideas, addressing challenges and guiding collaborative efforts to promote industry growth and development.

AD Ports said the Hub will also play a role in facilitating the maritime industry’s sustainability, by offering awareness, guidance and familiarisation on the pathway to decarbonisation, promoting best practice and the development of eco-friendly solutions to assist businesses in reducing their carbon footprint.

“This initiative will create an unparalleled platform for stakeholders to come together, share knowledge, and drive progress that will reshape the industry landscape and strengthen Abu Dhabi’s standing as an international maritime city.”

In November 2023, AD Ports in collaboration with KazMorTransFlot (KMTF), Kazakhstan’s national shipping company, announced the launch of two vessels designed to transport oil across the Caspian Sea.

More recently, AD Ports completed a comprehensive environmental and social impact assessment (ESIA), as part of their 30-year concession agreement with the Red Sea Port Authority (RSPA).
