42nd UAE National Day Fireworks 2013 - Burj Al Arab

Our special events team has had an intense week preparing for the UAE National Day Fireworks at the Burj Al Arab.  And what a spectacular event it was!

Although we unfortunately cannot claim credit for the amazing fireworks display (c/- the incredible Ruggieri), we were contracted to project manage the marine elements of the fireworks.  This included supplying a "fleet" (literally!) of barges and pontoons and modifying them for the fireworks set-up, developing the anchoring configuration in close but safe proximity from the Burj, installing the vessels and providing all project management services for the marine based works.  

The team had fun navigating an unusually large swell on the morning of the event, moving the fireworks armada from their set-up location to their final event position.

One of the most stunning fireworks events we have worked on to date, we're looking forward to working on the next events planned in the lead up to Expo 2020!

Here are some clips of the display:
