Abu Dhabi Ports owned Fujairah Terminals has acquired two cranes from China-based Shanghai Zhenhua Heavy Industries (ZPMC) to improve its operational efficiency.

The acquisition and installation of ZPMC cranes is part of Fujairah Port’s $272.3m (AED1bn) expansion project.

The new quay cranes will expand the Fujairah Terminals’ cargo-handling capacity to an additional 500,000 twenty-foot equivalent unit (TEU).

The cranes will offer an improved propulsion speed during container transfer between ship and quayside.

It will not only boost cranes’ productivity and overall safety but also accelerate the ship turnaround.

Fujairah Terminals sent two United Arab Emirates (UAE) national graduates to China to participate in a technical training programme at ZPMC’s facility so that the cranes can be operated with maximum efficiency.

The ongoing expansion programme will focus on increasing the port capacity to 1.5 million TEU and the cargo-handling capacity to 1.3 million tonnes. It will include the development of an 18m draft, a larger quayside. It will also enable the port to accommodate larger ships.

Fujairah Terminals acting CEO Abdul Aziz Al Balooshi said: “The arrival of these two new quay cranes is an exciting development in the ongoing expansion of operations at Fujairah Terminals.

“The ambitious expansion plan underscores our commitment to continuing development of world-class infrastructure, capable of facilitating global trade and logistics, and will contribute to the UAE’s economic growth.”

Fujairah Port operates as a multi-purpose port. It manages containers, general cargo, cruise ships and roll-on / roll-off (RoRo) vessels and connects to Africa, India and Asia.
