Abu Dhabi, ADT and the UAE’s Automobile and Touring Club (ATCUAE) will cooperate to strengthen the international road transport system (Internationaux Routiers) regarding the maritime movement of goods under import, transit and export customs regulations using Abu Dhabi Terminals (Khalifa Port) located in Abu Dhabi.
Khalifa Port announced it will invest 3.8 billion dirham ($1 billion) increasing its capacity by 50% by the end of 2020, aiming to meet clients’ demand and expanding the port, according to Reuters. Khalifa port began operations in 2012, and is located between Abu Dhabi city and the financial centre of Dubai where the region’s largest transshipment port Jebeli Ali is located.
Skuld Club informed about an advice by Lloyd’s Register, warning about a number of fuel oil samples from deliveries in Fujairah which have been found to have an elevated Total Acid Number (TAN). The tested TAN values were all significantly over the average for the port
Abu Dhabi Ports, Fujairah Terminals, Khalifa Industrial Zone Abu Dhabi (KIZAD) and network operator Etihad Rail signed an agreement to connect Khalifa Port with the UAE’s national railway network. The facility will ensure the safe navigation of vessels around ports in Abu Dhabi and will provide a variety of services for an efficient access and departure from territorial waters.
KIZAD, which is an industrial zone and part of Abu Dhabi Ports, announced the launch of the KIZAD Polymers Park, which is expected to form an integral part of the UAE’s polymers conversion ecosystem. The new park will benefit Abu Dhabi’s positions as a development and innovative hub in sustainability and technology, including advanced polymer technologies such as composites and 3D printing.
Abu Dhabi Terminals selected Konecranes to supply an Automated Stacking Crane system for the second phase of the building of its container terminal in Khalifa Port, namely the Khalifa Port Container Terminal. The order includes 54 Automated Rail Mounted Gantry cranes.
