Salalah Port sets productivity record thanks to new equipment


The Port of Salalah in Oman racked up a new productivity record in August, after delivering 412.9 port moves per hour (PMPH) on vessel Cap San Tainaro. The port also handled 3,820 moves in a port stay of 9.25 hours.
These achievements indicate that the US$31 million spent on asset replacement and capacity improvements at the port over the past year are starting to pay off, reported New York's Maritime Logistics Professional.
"We continue to place a very high emphasis on safety and focus on continuously improving our processes to deliver world class productivity," said the Port of Salalah's chief executive Mark Hardiman.
"In the competitive environment of the transshipment business, delivering these levels of performance enhances the overall value proposition of Salalah to the shipping line in terms of network cost savings and reliability."
The US$31 million investment over the last year is part of a long-term equipment renewal and deployment plan. Investments also support new business initiatives at the port, such as ship-to-ship liquid transfer operations which were introduced last year.
With further investments in the pipeline, over the past year the company has invested in 214 new terminal tractors, 28 spreaders, 29 forklifts, four rubber tyre gantry cranes (RTGs), welding equipment, lifts, general cargo equipment and state-of-the-art ship loaders for bulk.
APM Terminals has a 30-year concession agreement with the government of Oman to build and manage the port's container facility until 2028.
