Abu Dhabi Ports Operating Company─Abu Dhabi Terminals PJSC
Abu Dhabi Ports Operating Company─Abu Dhabi Terminals PJSC (ADT) was established in 2006 in Abu Dhabi, UAE to operate and manage Mina Zayed, the Freeport, and Mussafah Port under a concession agreement with the local port authority, Abu Dhabi Ports Company (ADPC). Services provided by ADT included container handling, break bulk, RoRo, marine services and cruise terminal operations. The concession agreement expired in late 2012 by the relocation of the container terminal activities to the newly developed port in Al Taweelah (Khalifa Port) and a 30-year concession agreement for Khalifa Port was awarded to ADT in 2012.
Khalifa Port, located off the Island of Abu Dhabi in Al Taweelah, handles all container terminal activities in Abu Dhabi. Adjacent to the port is a 417 square kilometers industrial zone that includes the world’s largest operating Aluminium smelter, Emirates Global Aluminium (EGA), and other industrial clusters.
Khalifa Port is the first semi-automated and most technologically advanced container terminal in the Middle East region with a current total capacity of 2.5 million twenty-foot equivalent containers (TEUs), covering 1,200 meter of quay wall capable of accommodating the largest afloat container vessels.
In addition to the container handling activities, ADT also owns and operates a state-of-the-art bagging facility and is involved in the supply chain of some of its key industrial customers such as Abu Dhabi Polymers Company Ltd. (Borouge).
In 2013, US-based JOC Group Inc. ranked Khalifa Port as the fifth most productive port in the Europe, Middle East, and Africa region, based on the average container moves per-ship, per-hour on all vessel sizes.
ADT handled over 1.6 million TEUs in 2016.
MIP acquired a 25% stake of ADT in January 2010.
