Abu Dhabi port expansion on track

[ September 14, 2020   //   ]

Abu Dhabi Ports says that phase 1 of its Khalifa Port expansion is on pace for completion in the first quarter of 2021. The scheme will provide additional deep-water access and enhanced infrastructure. To date, 200 metres of quay wall and almost 175,000sq m of land have been handed over, despite the Covid pandemic. Five new 90-tonne capacity ship-to-shore cranes have also been delivered to Abu Dhabi Terminals.

Arabian Chemical Terminals recently signed a 50-year agreement to establish the first commercial bulk liquid and gas storage terminal at Khalifa Port with 16-metre direct deep-water quay access.
