Jebel Ali Port – Major Attraction at Sea Asia 2013

The new mega container terminal now under construction at DP World flagship Jebel Ali Port has been a major attraction at Sea Asia 2013, the 3-day cornerstone event of Singapore’s Maritime Week, with visitors including Singapore’s Minister of Transport H.E. Lui Tuck Yew.

DP World is participating in the international conference and exhibition, which opened on Tuesday, with a prominent pavilion showcasing the company and the UAE.

Mr Lui showed keen interest in a scale model of Jebel Ali Port’s 4 million TEU (twenty-foot equivalent container units) Container Terminal 3, currently under construction, and was briefed by Mohammed Al Muallem, Senior Vice President and Managing Director, DP World, UAE Region, on DP World’s on-going expansion plans and its role as Premier Partner in supporting the UAE’s bid for World Expo 2020 in Dubai.

Other prominent visitors to the DP World pavilion included Abdulla Al Mandoos, Deputy Head of Mission, Embassy of the United Arab Emirates in Singapore, and Abdalla Jasim Al Shamsi, Head of Economic and Consular Affairs Department.

Early this month DP World completed its largest dredging work in 10 years at Jebel Ali and is on schedule to add 1 million TEU of new capacity to Container Terminal 2 later this year. Jebel Ali Port’s total capacity will reach 19 million TEU by 2014 when Container Terminal 3 opens for business.

Mohammed Al Muallem, Senior Vice President and Managing Director, DP World, UAE Region, said:

“Sea Asia is the flagship event of Singapore Maritime Week and one of the focal points for international maritime leaders to discuss pertinent issues and explore business relationships. DP World is pleased to participate and fly the UAE’s colours at this event and to project Dubai’s leading position as the gateway for a region of two billion people. We congratulate the Singapore Maritime Foundation for organising an excellent event.”

DP World’s presence at Sea Asia 2013, which ends on Thursday, has drawn a steady stream of trade visitors, including top executives of blue chip maritime companies and dignitaries.
