Two of Mourjan Marinas’ properties — Lusail Marina in Qatar and Almouj Marina in Oman — have been awarded International Clean Marina accreditation, a first for the region’s marine industry.


Both facilities scored in the mid-90s in the audit stage of the process, a voluntary system for marinas, yards, and clubs.


The Clean Marina initiative aims to reduce non-point source pollution, the result of running water picking up contaminants from land and depositing them into waterways.


“We are fully committed to reducing pollution in both the local community, and boating industry as a whole,” said Wayne Shepherd, general manager at Mourjan Marinas. “The benefits of managing clean marinas are endless, whilst the consequences of neglecting our environmental responsibilities are not even worth considering.”
