Khalifa Port expands capacity

Abu Dhabi: Abu Dhabi Ports Company (ADPC) announced yesterday the arrival of three of the world’s largest ship-to-shore (STS) quay cranes at Khalifa Port. 

The cranes, costing $28m, were delivered by Shanghai Zhenhua Heavy Industry.

Commenting on the recent deliveries, Mohamed Juma Al Shamisi, ceo, ADPC, said: “After more than 100,000 teu passed through Khalifa Port last year in October, which was the highest number of containers ever handled in a single month in Abu Dhabi, the start of the new year has already been promising and signalled a significant increase in the emirate’s import and export activities over the next twelve months.”  [27/01/14]
