Updated: Jul 25, 2023

AD Ports Group is to implement a state-of-the-art Vessel Traffic Management Information System (VTMIS) across its UAE operations as the company invests in innovative solutions to drive safety, security and security efficiency. The new technology is set to be installed across Khalifa Port, Zayed Port, Free Port, Musaffah Port, and Al Dhafra region ports.

AD Ports Group Invests in Latest VTMIS Technology to Enhance Maritime Safety and Efficiency

The investment marks the latest move by AD Ports Group to deploy advanced digital solutions within the UAE to support the nation's efforts to develop a world-class maritime and port sector.

Implementing an advanced and fully integrated VTMIS is vital in developing an enhanced Ports Community System (PCS) and ensuring the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS). The system provides the integration and interconnection of all assets in a port and maritime environment, integrating tools such as radar, CCTV, radios, meteorological systems, radio direction finders and towers.

This provides port operators access to real-time information and improves vessel-to-vessel and vessel-to-shore communication.

Captain Ammar Al Shaiba, Acting CEO - of Maritime Cluster and Safeen Group, AD Ports Group, said: “AD Ports Group has invested in a state-of-the-art Vessel Traffic Management Information System (VTMIS) to maximise the safety, security and efficiency of our port and maritime operations. This demonstrates our drive to improve quality and safety by the highest international standards and assists our marine services team in making smart, rapid decisions informed by real-time information.”

This advanced level of transparency and communication can support maritime operations' safe and secure management by supporting traffic management systems, including collision avoidance and safe navigation, search and rescue, oil pollution detection and environmental protection.


To support the implementation of the new system, AD Ports Group intends to advance and upgrade the current VTC Centre with video walls and operator consoles to provide a comprehensive view of tracked vessels within the VTMIS area.

Once implemented, the new technology will support safe and efficient navigation, enhancing AD Ports Group's ability to remotely monitor shipping from the command centre at Khalifa Port in locations as far as 300km away.
