Khalifa Port’s expansion work on track

October 2020

Abu Dhabi Ports has announced that the expansion work on its Khalifa Port project was moving at a steady pace with 80 per cent of construction already completed within Phase One of its South Quay development which is on track for completion by year-end.

Upon completion, the project is expected to substantially increase handling volumes by providing additional deep-water access and enhanced infrastructure.

To date, 200 m of quay wall and almost 175,000 sqm of land within Khalifa Port Logistics (KPL) have been handed over ahead of the project’s full phase one completion in Q1 2021, said the statement from Abu Dhabi Ports.

The Khalifa Port expansion, announced in December 2019, aims to attract new business and significantly boost capacity in line with evolving customer expectations, and has progressed significantly since its inception despite the challenging economic conditions presented by the global pandemic.  At the same time, considerable progress has also been made on the Phase One of Khalifa Port’s South Quay development that is slated for completion by Q4 2020.

With 80 per cent of construction already complete, a total of 650 m of quay wall, containing two berths alongside 37,000 sq m terminal yard is now available in advance of receiving its first shipment.

Progress has also been made on Abu Dhabi Terminals’ (ADT) expansion plans with the delivery of five new ship-to-shore cranes. With each unit boasting a lifting capacity of 90 tonnes, the new cranes have boosted capacity at the terminal significantly.
