Dhow Wharfage Development Overview

The Dhow Wharfage Development Project was launched in May 2012 by the Dubai Municipality to facilitate an increase in dhow trade through Dubai.

The project, now complete, involved constructing a comprehensive wharfage stretching 3km between the Deira Corniche and Palm Deira in front of the Hyatt Regency Hotel.

The development of the wharfage allows over 450 dhows to berth at the same time. It has 30 loading/unloading areas totalling 90,000 square metres, adding more than 50% to the previous loading/unloading area on Dubai Creek.

This translates into loading and unloading of 1.7 million tonnes of cargo every year.

The wharfage has been designed with a depth of seven metres below the low water level compared to the level of five metres at the creek, thus enabling Dubai Creek to receive and anchor bigger dhows than before.

The project included new quay structures and associated dredging and reclamation, including the support services and infrastructure such as entry and exit reporting wharves, administrative and control buildings, sailors’ facilities and a re-fuelling wharf.

A lighting network is provided for the entire wharfage area to facilitate cargo handling work during the evening hours.

The construction of the project required the excavation and dredging of 390,000 cubic metres of sand from the seabed adjacent to the wharf site. The dredged sand was re-used for the reclamation work for the new wharfage.
