Khalifa Port’s South Quay Now Operational

On 27 December 2020 the first shipment, of bauxite destined for Emirates Global Aluminium (EGA)’s Al Taweelah alumina refinery, arrived at Khalifa Port’s South Quay, marking the commencement of operations at the newly completed facility.

The bulk carrier Alfred Oldendorff brought the first in several shipments to the South Quay for EGA, and was soon followed by two large general cargo consignments, making use of the recently completed first phase of South Quay, which offers a total of 650m of quay wall comprising two berths and 37,000 sq metres of terminal yard.

EGA will use the South Quay, in addition to its own nearby quay, which began receiving Capesize vessels loaded with bauxite in 2019.

The onset of the South Quay’s operations at Abu Dhabi’s dedicated flagship deep-water terminal is the latest in a string of major achievements for the port’s owner and operator, Abu Dhabi Ports.

The opening of the South Quay, together with the adjacent Khalifa Port Logistics (KPL) development will boost Khalifa Port’s ability to handle any type of cargo and service a wide variety of customers.

In addition to the South Quay phase 1 completion, approximately 800m of quay wall and almost 175,000 sq metres of land within KPL has been handed over in advance of the project’s full phase 1 conclusion in Q1 2021.
