DUBAI, November 28, 2021 (WAM) – The maritime center specially built by DP World, the Maritime City of Dubai (DMC), announced the 20% completion of the upgrade of the wastewater management network in the Industrial Zone.

The network will link DMC, Mina Rashid and P&O Marinas to the existing core infrastructure of the Municipality of Dubai.

Currently, their customer base includes companies that primarily deal with boat lifts, ship repair and yacht manufacturing. The AED 13.4 million upgrade project will meet growing demand within the industrial hub, creating an increase in occupants.

Ahmed Al Hammadi, COO, DMC, said: “The Dubai Maritime City Industrial Zone is a bustling business hub, home to leading shipping companies. Currently, the occupancy rate in the district has reached 82% with 299 business partners. The growing number of occupants prompted us to undertake the upgrade of existing effluent treatment systems to provide premium quality services to businesses here. We are constantly working to ensure that our existing facilities meet the needs of our customers. Thus, supporting our mission and with the aim of helping DMC’s business partners to prosper and preserve the quality that we provide to our demanding customers, while facilitating the wastewater treatment processes in the city. ”
