Jebel Ali terminal docks its first ship, the 8,500-TEU APL Phoenix

DUBAI global terminal operator DP World has welcomed the first scheduled vessel at its new Terminal 3 in its home port of Jebel Ali.

The 8,500-TEU APL Phoenix called at the terminal, which will add 4 million TEU to Jebel Ali's capacity, when fully operational, taking the port's total capacity to 19 million TEU.

The US$850 million terminal's 18-metre draught alongside enables the port to handle as many as 10 ultra large containerships at one time.

Terminal 3 has 19 remotely-operated quay cranes and 50 automated rail-mounted gantry cranes (RMG).

DP World chairman Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem said Terminal 3 will be the world's largest semi-automated terminal and will be 30 per cent more carbon efficient than a traditional terminal.

Mr Sulayem also said the coming connection of Etihad Rail to the port will add a further dimension to its multi-modal supply chain.

Jebel Ali was the worldis 9th biggest port in 2013 and by far the biggest in the Middle East, as it handled 13.6 million TEU, a three per cent increase year on year.
