UAE: ITC inaugurates Saadiyat and Rabdan marinas

According to Emirates News Agency (WAM), the Integrated Transport Centre (ITC) of the Department of Municipalities and Transport (DMT), in cooperation with Abu Dhabi Maritime, part of AD Ports Group, has opened Saadiyat Marina & Ferry Terminal and Rabdan Marina. The inauguration marks a significant milestone in enhancing maritime connectivity and infrastructure in Abu Dhabi.

The Saadiyat facility is designed as a versatile marine hub for different types of vessels and includes a range of amenities, such as floating pontoons, a slipway, dry berths, commercial outlets and parking spaces, along with a state-of-the-art ferry terminal.
Rabdan Marina comprises 19 berths for leisure boats and jet skis and has a slipway, dry berths, and food and beverage outlets. It also offers a range of services, including boat launch and recovery, washing and engine flushing and assisted berthing.
Recognising the potential impact the development of Saadiyat Marina may have on the surrounding marine habitat, extensive research was conducted in collaboration with AD Ports Group’s environment and sustainability department.
As a result, ecological articulated concrete mattresses were installed on the seabed and eco sea wall panels on the quay walls, each composed of unique materials that seamlessly integrate into the environment.
The mattresses, developed by a science-based company, and the panels developed by a pioneering tech company not only attract and promote the growth of organisms but also improve water quality and biodiversity, contributing to the preservation of marine life and habitats.
