Minister of Transport Launches Two Eco-Friendly Boats

HE Minister of Transport Jassim bin Saif Al Sulaiti launched two boats at Doha Port on Monday, which are the latest units to have joined Mwani Qatar’s fleet of vessels, on the sidelines of the closing day of the Ministry of Transport’s (MOT) “Sustainable Transportation and Legacy for Generations” Conference and Exhibition – under the patronage of HE Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman bin Jassim Al-Thani.
The first boat, Aljurula, is a multifunctional garbage and oil spill collection vessel, used in cleaning the basins of Doha Port, Hamad Port, and Al Ruwais Port using the best eco-friendly practices.
The 12.6-meter-long Aljurula can collect spilled oil and garbage. Its full capacity of 25,000 liters. It can collect spilled oils in an area of 200 m. Its draft is 1 meter deep.
The second boat, ALSAMLAH, is 32.7 meter long used in maintenance of navigational aids such as the buoys, in addition to the maintenance of commercial and tourism ports, thereby contributing to providing safer, more efficient traffic for all types of vessels in Qatari waters.
The launching of the two boats reflects MOT’s commitment to protecting the Qatari marine environment and maritime navigation safety and security. This helps achieve the goals of Qatar’s national plan to combat oil pollution and relevant regional and international conventions.
The launching event was attended by HE Deputy Chairperson of Qatar Tourism Saad bin Ali Al Kharji, Chairperson of the Permanent Committee for the Management of Maritime Ports Brig. Dr. Abdulhadi Mohammad Zabin Al Dosari, and several Mwani Qatar officials.
