DUBAI, 14th May, 2018 – The Roads and Transport Authority, RTA, has received a delegation from the Danish Consulate in Dubai, accompanied by representatives of Exilator Marine Transport Management Company in Denmark, to exchange experience and knowledge about marine transport. The visit was part of RTA’s strategy to share international experience and familiarise with the latest developments in all relevant fields.
“The visit of the Danish delegation stems from our keenness to review the best global practices of marine transit means, which attract considerable numbers of tourists, visitors and residents of Dubai. We have screened the practices applied in Denmark including air purification from the combustion of fuel used by marine transit means. The process applies state-of-the-art filters that eliminate 98 percent of pendants, and 99 percent of carbon that contributes to the preservation of the environment, and the green economy,” said Fahad Al Suwaidi, Director of Marine Transport at RTA’s Public Transport Agency.
The meeting reviewed RTA’s experience in adopting optimal practices for reducing carbon emissions of marine transit means. The move is part of RTA’s capacity as a leading government entity in reducing the carbon footprint and pushing the green economy and sustainable energy drive. Al Suwaidi said that RTA have introduced electric abras and made plans for using clean energy in the authority’s marine transport projects.
“Exchanging ideas with the industry concerned parties at the regional and international levels aims to gain access to cumulative experience and the highest practices of improved marine transit means. Dubai coast is a fascinating destination for marine transport riders, especially tourists,” he added.
