King Abdullah Port Development: Berths 5 and 6 in Its Final Stages

The King Abdullah Port has announced that the infrastructure works for Berth 5 and Berth 6 are about to be finished in a few weeks.

Commenting the progress, Eng. Abdullah Hameedadin, Managing Director of the Ports Development Company, the owner and developer of King Abdullah Port, said: “With the two new berths, the port’s annual capacity will rise to four million TEU as of the beginning of the first quarter of 2017.”

The two berths are part of the port’s strategic expansion plan, which aims to significantly uprate the port’s capacity, thus boosting its standing in the maritime industry, both regionally and internationally, the port stated in its announcement.

The management of King Abdullah Port expects to finalize the first phase of bulk cargo terminals with a capacity of three million tons, in addition to the RORO (roll-on/roll-off) terminals with a capacity of 300,000 CEU by the beginning of 2017.
