Yemen: New Cranes Will Boost Capacity of ACT

New Cranes Will Boost Capacity of ACT

As part of its continued focus on efficiency and commitment to customers, DP World Aden this month received and operated an additional two gantry cranes, bringing up to seven the number of cranes at the Aden Container Terminal (ACT).

The two new Liebherrs Super Post Panamax quay cranes with a capacity of 65 tons and a reach of 22 rows of containers, further boost the capacity of ACT, operated by global marine terminal operator DP World, to receive and service large container ships in the most efficient way.

Earlier this year, ACT received and serviced the 8,441 TEU (twenty-foot equivalent unit) MSC Tomoko, the largest container vessel ever to call at the facility, located in Yemen’s premier port city.

Capt. Faisal Al Qahtani, Senior Vice President and Managing Director, DP World, Middle East, said: “We are committed to providing our customers with the most efficient service when and where they need it. DP World Aden occupies a strategic position as a gateway port to meet the needs of Yemen’s importers and exporters. At DP World Aden we have proven experience in handling large vessels, and with the new cranes that have been mobilised at the terminal we have boosted the efficiency with which we do that even further.”

Aden has one of the finest natural deep-water harbours with a depth alongside of 16 metres at berths 1 and 2. A 48 hectare terminal area supports the facility.
