DRY BULK

The Port’s strategic location, just outside the Arabian Gulf, makes it the preferred site from which to load the Middle East’s highest quality aggregate and limestone. More than 20 quarries are in close proximity to the Port and a highly efficient conveyor and bulk-loader system ensures quick turnaround for vessels of up to 150,000 DWT.

The Port handles significant export volumes of aggregate and limestone for the GCC-Indian subcontinent markets, in addition to the imports of coal, furnace slag and grains. A highly skilled workforce ensures quick turnaround based on 24-hour service, supported by an extensive range of modern equipment including mobile cranes, all types of cargo slings, forklifts, trailers and MAFIs. The Port of Fujairah offers five dry bulk and general cargo berths dredged to 15 m, three of which are dedicated to bulk loaders.

AGGREGATE & LIMESTONE

Fujairah is well known for its high quality rock resources, including gabbro, limestone, mudstone and basalt. This has made Fujairah a destination of choice for investors in material for buildings, roads and other construction, including cement factories and crushers.

Fujairah Natural Resources Corporation (FNRC) has divided all mining activities into three zones distributed across the Emirate. From these zones, mined rocks are trucked to a stockpile area operated by the Port. Two conveyor belts (one 3.3 km and the other 4.8 km) connect the stockpile area with the two bulk loaders inside the Port, resulting in a highly efficient vessel loading operation.

Key features:

  • Two bulk loaders with 2,000 mt/hr and 4,000 mt/hr loading capacity
  • High productivity and quality control
  • Environmentally friendly loading solution
  • Capacity to handle large vessels of up to 150,000 DWT
  • Flexible stockpile storage arrangements
  • Accommodation of gearless vessels

GRAIN TERMINAL

Since 2016, Etihad Mills, a joint venture between Al Dahra and Loulis Mills, has operated a high-tech grain terminal for both strategic reserves as well as commercial purposes. The company handles a wide range of products, from wheat to barley and corn. Third-party storage is offered for transhipment and trading purposes.

Etihad Mills operates 20 silos in Fujairah, with a total grains storage capacity of roughly 300,000 tons. This enables domestic and regional capabilities in grains trading and ensures a consistent flow of grains into the region. Etihad Mills’ business model is based on the import of grains from North America, South America, Europe and Australia for storage and distribution across the UAE, various GCC counties, the Indian subcontinent, East Asia and Africa.

The Grain Terminal is connected to the Port via a conveyor belt system, and the two bulk loaders at SSB # 2 have the capacity to discharge 1,200 mt/hr and load at 600 mt/hr for vessels of up to 90,000 dwt.
