DMC facilities showcased in South Korea
Dubai, June 29, 2008
Dubai Maritime City (DMC), the world’s first purpose-built maritime centre and a member of the Dubai World Group of companies, participated in the Asian Oil & Gas Show (AOGS) 2008 held recently in South Korea.
DMC is the first-of-its-kind maritime complex and it drew overwhelming support for its key role in setting new benchmarks for the maritime industry.
DMC focused its exhibition on its state-of-the-art facilities and technologies dedicated to the oil and gas industry, particularly on transport and ship building infrastructure.
DMC conducted a detailed presentation of the unique features of the Maritime Centre, the business capital. The high-profile exhibition of the Maritime Centre at AOGS 2008 served as a significant follow-up to its highly successful global launching during the opening day of Posidonia, the world’s biggest maritime industry event held in Athens, Greece, wherein nearly 20,000 visitors, exhibitors and journalists from more than 80 countries were present.
“The response we have gathered at the Asian Oil & Gas Show 2008 was tremendously overwhelming. The event was particularly important for us because of Dubai Maritime City's crucial role in the oil and gas transport segment, which is naturally a very critical component to the regional economy,” said manager of sales and special projects, DMC, Ahmed Bin Hareb.
“The event served as an excellent opportunity to showcase our plans for the oil and gas sector along with the key facilities that have been incorporated into the project specifically for this vital industry.”
DMC, a 227-hectare man-made peninsula, is now in its third and final phase of development. The Maritime Centre is one of six clusters developed within DMC, which also include the Marina District; Industrial Precinct; Dubai Maritime City Campus; Harbour Offices; and Harbour Residences.
The mega project has been developed according to stringent internationally recognised ‘green building’ policies, requiring all developers to obtain environmental certification to ensure energy conservation and optimised living conditions.
Located at the heart of the DMC, the Maritime Centre is a cluster of five high-rise towers called the Creek Towers and Plaza; a landmark tower located at the top of the man-made peninsula; and seven plots reserved for developers planning to construct their own towers.
It will be equipped with a full range of complementary facilities to enhance its reputation as the focal point of Dubai Maritime City and ultimately the universal capital for all maritime businesses.
“DMC will bring us to a new frontier, revolutionising practically all aspects in the maritime industry. With its fully integrated facilities and infrastructure, we have developed Dubai Maritime City to be a centre of excellence for international maritime activities, and will be a key instrument in realising the long-term economic goals outlined in Dubai's strategic plan.” added Bin Hareb.
The Asia Oil & Gas Show 2008, the first event of its kind to be held in South Korea, provided a suitable platform for DMC to network with specific players and potential partners in the oil and gas sector, particularly those in the field of transport, ship building and marine technology.
The event also offered insights on future trends and covered all relevant industry issues particularly those related to the environment and business development. – TradeArabia News Service
