Abu Dhabi, June 11, 2014
ADPC, the master developer of ports and industrial zones, has awarded a Dh20 million ($5.4 million) contract to Alba Tec, a construction company specialised in pre-engineered building, to manage the second phase development of Marfa Port in the Al Gharbia Region of Abu Dhabi.
The Marfa Port development work has been split into two phases. The first phase of development represented an investment of Dh17 million and focused on improving the port facilities, said a statement.
The second phase of the development will focus on the landside infrastructure and new marina facilities.
It will include an administration building, a fish-market, a supermarket, café and new restaurant building, besides retail units for boat maintenance businesses and dry boat parking, said the statement.
All of the projects and the new buildings will be Estidama compliant, with two-pearl rating, meeting the government’s environmental and sustainability regulations, it said.
Akram Chalich, managing director of Alba Tec, and Capt. Mohamed Juma Al Shamisi, CEO of ADPC, met at ADPC’s headquarters to formally seal the agreement and sign the contract.
Capt Mohamed Juma Al Shamisi, CEO of ADPC, said: “The development of Marfa Port is one of our most important projects in the Al Gharbia region. Established in the 1970s, Marfa has been a fishing port and a location for pearl diving. It is a beautiful location for tourism and substantial development is planned for the area, as part of the 2030 Economic Plan.
“The investment in port facilities and improved infrastructure will support and facilitate this development in the years ahead.”
Akram Chalich, managing director of Alba Tec, added: “We are committed to delivering the project on time and to the highest quality standards. All of the buildings will be sustainable, meeting the Estidama Pearl 2 rating standards using green materials and saving energy.” - TradeArabia News Service
