VIDEO: Khalifa Port Development (UAE)
Khalifa Port, the flagship state of the art gateway to Abu Dhabi, was officially inaugurated on December 12, 2012.
Khalifa Port is crucial to the ADPC megaproject which includes Khalifa Industrial Zone Abu Dhabi (Kizad), whose Area A consists of 51 square kilometres. Khalifa Port offers direct access for all companies setting up in Kizad. The megaproject will create more than 100,000 jobs, contributing 15% of the Emirate’s non-oil GDP by 2030.
With the commencement of commercial operations at Khalifa Port’s unique semi-automated container terminal, on September 1st, 2012, Abu Dhabi has seen record cargo traffic.
The offshore Port has been constructed on a reclaimed Port Island with an offshore area extending over 2.7 square kilometers and the Container Terminal situated more than four kilometers out to sea.
