Abu Dhabi Ports has signed a strategic agreement with Arabian Chemical Terminals (ACT) for the development of a greenfield bulk liquids storage terminal at the deepwater Khalifa Port. The terminal, the first commercial facility in Abu Dhabi, will be developed on a 50,000-m2 plot of land adjacent to a quay with 16 m water alongside, with an option on a further 150,000 m2 of land. It is envisaged that the terminal will be developed in two phases, the first scheduled for commissioning in the second half of 2022 with 44 tanks of 1,250 tonnes and 3,000 tonnes capacity; a second phase will include larger tanks and gas spheres.
“Located between Abu Dhabi, Ruwais, and Dubai industries, the new liquid terminal will not only prosper as a result of its strategic location, but will be further bolstered by Khalifa Port’s multimodal connectivity with access to the sea and UAE’s extensive road and future GCC railway network,” says Rakan Alireza, managing director of ACT. “In addition to supporting our overseas expansion strategy, the project will also provide the foundation for other potential terminal activities within the emirate of Abu Dhabi.”
ACT is exploring further opportunities to expand its service offering in and around Khalifa Port, including the facilitation of bunkering services, drumming and tank container filling services, ADR trucking and distribution, and stevedoring services to support other liquid product transfers.[post_title] => ACT wins Abu Dhabi terminal deal [post_excerpt] => [post_status] => publish [comment_status] => open [ping_status] => open [post_password] => [post_name] => act-wins-abu-dhabi-terminal-deal [to_ping] => [pinged] => [post_modified] => 2020-04-09 08:45:26 [post_modified_gmt] => 2020-04-09 07:45:26 [post_content_filtered] => [post_parent] => 0 [guid] => https://hcblive.com/?p=19275 [menu_order] => 0 [post_type] => post [post_mime_type] => [comment_count] => 0 [filter] => raw )
