For the past 6 years, Ecocoast has been contracted to manage all marine works relating to New Year’s Eve Fireworks in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Our marine event teams have been carrying out design, fabrication and installation of barges and floating pontoons at the most prominent locations throughout the UAE, such as Downtown Dubai, Business Bay, Atlantis The Palm, Al Majaz Waterfront in Sharjah, Abu Dhabi Corniche and Ras Al Khaimah, just to name a few. We helped the city of Ras Al Khaimah break two world records, smashing the Guinness World Records for the longest chain of fireworks AND the longest straight line of fireworks.
Designs vary from year-to-year. However, one of the past years, Ecocoast was assigned to design and manufacture over 180 floating platforms, including 50 custom catamarans and trimarans. These platforms had to withstand high forces and Shamal weather, and be deployed along over 20km of Dubai coastline and waterways.
Every single year without exceptions, Ecocoast was able to successfully provide Project Management for all marine-based work involved in the events, and deliver a large-scale job in a short amount of time. The fireworks’ displays always set off successfully at midnight on December 31 at the various locations. Ecocoast is honoured to have been part of so many New Year’s Eve fireworks events in the UAE.
