Abu Dhabi's Khalifa Port takes delivery of super post Panamax STS container cranes


Abu Dhabi Ports Company (ADPC) has received the first batch of super post Panamax ship-to-shore (STS) container cranes at Khalifa Port.
The three massive STS cranes, which are 44 metres high under the spreader and capable of lifting 110 tonnes, are designed and constructed by Shanghai Zhenhua Heavy Industries Co Ltd. The second batch of three cranes is scheduled for delivery in the second quarter.
By the fourth quarter, the flagship facility will be the first semi-automated port in the region, capable of initially handling two million TEU and 12 million tonnes of general cargo annually, a company statement said.
"I am tremendously proud to be a part of this instrumental project, which will play such a key role in Abu Dhabi's economic development," said Ahmed Al Jaber, chairman of ADPC. "Ports in the UAE account for 61 per cent of the trade volume among GCC countries. With this fast-paced growth, ports are striving to be more competitive and productive for their customers."
Khalifa Port is said to have been designed to accommodate the largest containerships currently at sea and those planned for the future. By 2030, the port will be able to handle 15 million TEU and 35 million tonnes of general cargo a year., according to the Shipping Gazette.
