July 13, 2020: Dubai Maritime City Authority (DMCA) has announced the move to increase the number of licensed vessels to 12 ships, for supplying fuel across the emirate's territorial waters.

The decision was made in conjunction with the move to resume maritime operations in Dubai anchorage areas, including ship repair and maintenance operations and in compliance with the controls applied to ensure the highest levels of security and safety of ship crew members and visitors.

Strengthening of the bunkering fleet falls within the framework of the DMCA's commitment to develop and improve the operational and legal framework--further guaranteeing the growth and development of the marine segment and ensuring the continuous supply of ships with fuel without interruption, especially in view of the ongoing preparations to receive regional and international tourists coming to Dubai.

Mohammad Al Bastaki, director, marine anchorage operations department, Dubai Maritime City Authority, said, "Strengthening the bunkering fleets represents a quality-focused addition to the efforts aimed at providing guarantees for the return of momentum to the local marine sector”

"We look forward to providing the necessary support for all services offered in Dubai anchorage areas to ensure the return of maritime operations with strong momentum, in line with the ongoing inclination to receive international tourists again. We affirm our continuous commitment to provide the best services that meet the aspirations of the marine sector pioneers, while applying best practices that guarantee maritime safety, safe navigation and operational efficiency, in order to enhance Dubai's position as a leading destination on the global marine map,” Al Bastaki added.
