Abu Dhabi Ports Co (ADPC) has said the emirate's new $7.1bn Khalifa Port is expected to reach an initial target for container handling capacity in five years on the back of a growing industrial park nearby, Gulf Times has reported. "The Khalifa Industrial Zone Abu Dhabi (Kizad) is a linked proposition to the port. As it starts to populate, tonnes of feedstock will come in," said Tony Douglas, chief executive of ADPC. Since the port at Taweelah became operational in September, 30% of container traffic has been transferred from Abu Dhabi's older port, Mina Zayed. In six months, all container traffic is to have migrated to the new port, which has a phase-one capacity of 2.5m TEUs (twenty foot equivalent units). That limit is expected to be reached by 2017, said Douglas.
