EMAL's partnership with Khalifa Port aids Phase II construction

posted on 27/08/2013: 2874 views



More than seventy per cent of the construction of EMAL's (Emirates Aluminium) Phase II expansion is completed and on schedule to meet its December 2013 deadline, the company announced yesterday, hailing its cooperation with Abu Dhabi Ports Company (ADPC), "Almost half of the containers of vital equipment had been unloaded and delivered to the EMAL Al Taweelah complex in the six months prior to February 2013. Khalifa Port's integrated logistics - which includes radio frequency identification (RFID) tags and automated gates - have contributed significantly towards this rapid progress," according to a press release issued by the company.

By the time construction is due to be completed in December, around 5,000 containers destined for the EMAL complex will have entered the port, passed through customs and been transported directly to the site.

Khalifa Port's technology has helped to speed up delivery, allowing trucks to make two deliveries of containers every day to the site, which minimises the number of trucks required.

Commenting on the latest developments, EMAL's Vice President - Projects, Yousuf Bastaki, said, "One of the reasons for this success is the partnership we have developed with ADPC, which has enabled smooth and efficient transportation of the vital equipment needed to build one of the world's largest single-site aluminium smelters. Such local partnerships highlight the unity that exists within the UAE to deliver world-leading projects which will provide the foundation for our future economic prosperity." Exceptionally large bulk pieces such as compressors, modules, transformers and turbines are currently discharged at Zayed Port in Abu Dhabi, barged directly to Khalifa Port and then discharged at EMAL's construction jetty.– Emirates News Agency, WAM
