FUJAIRAH

Fujairah Port is strategically positioned on UAE’s East Coast, approximately 70 nautical miles from the Straits of Hormuz, an attractive location for a range of users of the multi-purpose port and the significant number of vessels calling at the Fujairah anchorage for bunker supplies and services. Since commencing operations in 1983, Fujairah Port has embarked on a continuing process of enhancement of its facilities and functions. Improvements in recent years include the dredging of the entrance and the inner basin to 15 metres, the completion of an additional 600 metres of main quay (giving 1.4 kilometres of continuous quay), an additional 720 metres of tanker berth quays along the northern breakwater additional paved area, (storage for up to 30,000 TEUs), and the provision of a bulk loader for the emirate's growing aggregate export market.

The offshore tanker anchorage, supervised by Fujairah's Port Authority, has been a major component of the port's success and Fujairah is now the second-largest oil-bunkering port in the world.
