*Offshore Anchorage Site Visit Details

Fujairah Port is situated on the Eastern Seaboard of the UAE, approximately 70 nautical miles from the Straits of Hormuz. Its strategic position has proved attractive to both the range of users of the multi- purpose Port and the significant numbers of vessels calling at the Fujairah Anchorage for Bunkers, Supplies and Service. The Fujairah Anchorage is internationally recognised for its safety, security and calm waters.

The Port’s Oil Terminal, FOTT, has the flexibility to operate either 9 main berths or 14 wing berths (up to 200,000 dwt), in addition to 4 dedicated bunker barge berths for low sulfur oil tankers that comply with IMO 2020. It also operated the region’s first VLCC jetty capable of handling both fuel oil and crude oil vessels of up to 330,000 dwt. Infrastructure is in place to add a second VLCC jetty plus an additional 12 main berths should the business need arise. The Port’s two matrix manifold systems provide customers (the storage terminals) with full connectivity between any of the FOTT berths, as well as the unique option of transferring products directly between terminals without having to charter a vessel.

The Port of Fujairah as a multipurpose Port, caters for Container, General and Dry & Liquid Bulk cargoes and Cruise Vessels. Two bulk loaders handle the Emirates considerable aggregate exports and the Port also hosts UAE’s strategic grain reserve.

The Site Visit is open to all registered participants for FUJCON 2023. For further details and registration, please contact the Events Team.
