Qatar’s QTerminals has appointed Trent Port Services to manage the equipment procurement for its CT2 development.
Following the rapid development of Hamad as the gateway to Qatar, Mwani Qatar, the Qatar state port’s management company, is pushing forward to develop its second phase, CT2.
QTerminals, a joint venture between Mwani Qatar and the Qatari shipping line Milaha, has appointed Trent Port Services as the primary Project Management Consultant (PMC) for the delivery of the Hamad Port CT2 expansion. Trent is a crane and engineering consultancy founded by industry veterans including Jon Arnup and Eddie Atichian, and will use the iSpec procurement software to manage the entire project from start to finish.
Last year WorldCargo News reported that Mwani Qatar wanted to develop CT2 as a fully automated terminal, with AGVs for the horizontal transport between the quay and the yard, but it appears those plans have changed. The procurement for CT2 includes seven STS cranes with remote control functionality, 26 RTGs, 52 Tractor trailer sets, plus reachstackers and other ancillary equipment.
"QTerminals has been working with the Trent team for more than two years and are very pleased to have them working alongside the QTerminals team to deliver our CT2 expansion project,” said QTerminals CEO Neville Bissett.
