Two mega-vessels call at CSP Abu Dhabi Terminal within a month

The new container terminal has been built and operated by China’s Cosco Shipping Ports Limited (CSP) under a 35-year concession agreement with Abu Dhabi Ports. The calls by the two 20,000 TEU vessels follow the call of the 14,000 TEU CSCL MERCURY 20 April 2019 and the 19,000 TEU CSCL GLOBE, which arrived on 27 April 2019.

 

Captain Mohamed Juma Al Shamisi, CEO of Abu Dhabi Ports, said: “The arrival of both the COSCO SHIPPING SOLAR and PISCES is a milestone moment for Abu Dhabi Ports and its partner, CSP. Not only does it demonstrate our growth as a hub port in the region, but also our position as the heart of COSCO’s network in the Middle East.

 

“The container industry is constantly looking for ways to improve efficiency, and the use of mega-vessels to cut costs and time is a trend shaping the future of the sector. We have ensured that through CSP Abu Dhabi Terminal, Khalifa Port is able to handle the largest vessels of today and adapt to those of tomorrow.”

 

Captain Ju Weiping, CEO of CSP Abu Dhabi Terminal, said: “We are excited to facilitate the arrival of two of the world’s largest mega-vessels at CSP Abu Dhabi Terminal as it demonstrates the strength of our partnership with Abu Dhabi Ports.

"The terminal has been built to accommodate the evolution of trade in an increasingly competitive global economy; applying the latest port technologies to improve efficiencies, reduce calling times, and ultimately deliver a competitive edge to our customers. We are proud to contribute to facilitating trade in the region and look forward to welcoming further large-scale vessels over the coming years.”
