Sheikh Hamad Bin Saleh Al Sharqi (son of Fujairah ruler [right] presented the appreciation award to Capt. Pramod Arora (MISC, MNI, Master Mariner) Shipping Manager - East Coast, Kanoo Shipping [left]
Dubai, UAE: Kanoo Shipping received recognition during the 20th Anniversary celebration of Fujairah Port Clinic held on 7th November 2013 at Al Diar Siji Hotel, Fujairah. 200 guests from local dignitaries and members of the Shipping Fraternity also gathered in the event. The function was held under the patronage of Sheikh Hamad Bin Saleh Al Sharqi, Vice Chairman of Fujairah National Group and Chairman of Al Sharq Healthcare.


Kanoo Shipping was awarded during the event as one of the big supporters for the Fujairah Port Clinic since its inception, for getting medical services for vessels calling under our agency.

Kanoo Shipping is an active and regular user of Fujairah Port Clinic for all the Seafarers requiring medical attention and also sending emergency Doctor Assistance to the vessel where emergency medical assistance is required.

Mr. Ahmed Alhafeiti, Deputy CEO, delivered his welcome address. Subsequently Dr. Antony Thomas gave an interesting presentation on “Healthy Living” which was very much appreciated by all guests and followed by a speech by Mr. Manuel Terreiro, HOD of Fujairah Port Clinic, speaking about the History of Fujairah and their achievement for the last 20 years and also their future plan for the maritime industry.

Historically, it was mentioned that Fujairah anchorage gained its prominence after the Iran-Iraq War (1980-1988) and the First Gulf War (1990-1991). The main attraction thereafter for Ship owners was to capitalize on the strategic advantages of Fujairah Anchorage before entering the Gulf where a number of Shipping Agents were available to provide a variety of husbandry services. Today Fujairah is recognised as one of the world’s biggest bunkering stations.

Fujairah Port Clinic, from a humble small beginning has grown to become the biggest healthcare services provider in the East Coast region (Covering Fujairah, Khorfakkan and Dibba) with various medical establishments under the brand name of Al Sharq Healthcare across UAE East Cost.  


Fujairah Port Clinic pledged to continue to provide 24-hour Quality Medical Services to all its seafaring patients and is currently in the process of upgrading its clinic with a new 3-storey building. There will also be upgrades on medical services in the form of more doctors, laboratories, pharmacies and a ‘day stay’ room for patients.

The celebration concluded with closing remarks from Mr. Wagdi Zayed, Deputy CEO of Al Sharq Healthcare and Social Interaction.

A grand buffet followed after that which was a networking opportunity for all guests which included management representatives of Kanoo Shipping.
