NMDC in Khalifa Port expansion contract

November 2018

Abu Dhabi’s National Marine Dredging Company (NMDC) says it is working on a Dh985.17-million ($268 million) contract for the expansion of Khalifa Port in the UAE capital.

 The Khalifa Port’s free zone includes around 40 companies in different business segments, such as industrial and commercial businesses.

The expansion at Khalifa Port, one of the world’s fastest growing container, bulk cargo and roll-on roll-off vehicle transport ports, will add 1,000 m of quay wall to the port and deepen its main channel and basin to 18 m from the current 16 m. The new quay wall will add a further 600,000 sq m for cargo handling, says the company.  The contract involves 10,415,000 cu m of dredging works.

 In another development, The Abu Dhabi Ports had earlier received automated rail-mounted gantry  (ARMG) ship-to-shore quay cranes for deployment at Khalifa Port.

 Shipped from Shanghai, the 10 state-of-the-art ARMG cranes and four STS cranes are the initial batches of equipment to be installed at Cosco Shipping Abu Dhabi Terminal, the second container terminal being built at Khalifa Port due for completion at the end of this year.
