Dubai Harbour

20 million tourists in

Just a stone's throw from Dubai's iconic Ain Dubai and Palm Jumeirah, the project involved reclaiming 60 hectares of additional land and constructing huge quay walls and a new marina in the azure blue water.  

Dubai:
Where the sky
is the limit

Dubai Harbour Masterplan
Set to open in October 2020, Dubai Harbour is a unique and luxurious waterfront development that combines world-class maritime facilities with the most advanced cruise terminals and the largest marina in the region.

Dubai Harbour’s state-of-the-art cruise facility can accommodate the world's largest cruise ships. The cruise terminals, currently under construction, can dock the largest existing and forthcoming cruise ships and the marina can ultimately accommodate 1,100 yachts up to 160 metres in length. All these new facilities will help the metropolis achieve its ambition of welcoming 20 million tourists in 2020. Van Oord completed its work for the Dubai Harbour Masterplan last November.

Project facts & figures

In the spotlights

Van Oord has been involved in some iconic waterfront and infrastructure projects in the Middle East over the past 40 years, and specifically in Dubai. It will play an active role in various programme components for the Dutch Pavilion at Expo 2020, inviting clients and partners to visit the Dutch Pavilion throughout the six months of the Expo, especially during theme weeks and on the Netherlands’ national day.

From October 2020, the world’s spotlights will be focused on Dubai for six months when it hosts Expo 2020. Van Oord is National Partner of the Dutch Pavilion.

‘We believe our role as National Partner of the Dutch Pavilion at Expo 2020 will provide the perfect opportunity for Van Oord to share its market knowledge and its expertise in marine engineering and energy infrastructure. We are looking forward to meeting our highly valued clients from all over the world in Dubai.’
