Capt. Adil Banihammad, Acting CEO of Safeen, said: “The establishment of the Environment and Anti-Pollution Department at Safeen, under the Marine Services Directorate back in 2015, demonstrates Abu Dhabi Ports’ utmost priority to protect the environment, attain sustainability and preserve marine resources and life.”

“The department, run by Emirati staff trained to the highest international standards, has designed a special boat which was responsible for the collection of tons of floating debris, such as plastic, wood, ropes and fishing nets in Abu Dhabi waters. In addition, the department coordinates joint actions with all parties involved in protecting the environment and the marine life, particularly coral and sea turtles, and organizes awareness campaigns about the hazards of throwing waste in the sea,” Banihammad explained.
