Abu Dhabi Ports (ADP), a developer and regulator of ports and industrial zones in the emirate of Abu Dhabi, has announced that Khalifa Port’s expansion is on pace for completion.
The Khalifa Port expansion is set to attract new business and significantly boost capacity in line with evolving customer expectations, said ADP.
The expansion has progressed significantly since its inception despite the challenging economic conditions presented by the global pandemic.
To date, 200 metres of quay wall and almost 175,000 sqm of land within Khalifa Port Logistics (KPL) have been handed over ahead of the project’s full phase one completion in Q1 2021.
At the same time, considerable progress has also been made on the first phase of Khalifa Port’s South Quay development that is slated for completion by Q4 2020.
With 80 percent of construction already complete, a total of 650 metres of quay wall, containing two berths alongside 37,000 sqm terminal yard is now available in advance of receiving its first shipment, said ADP.
Upon completion, the project is expected to substantially increase handling volumes by providing additional deep-water access and enhanced infrastructure.
