First Vessel Calls at DP World’s New Terminal

DP World has today welcomed the first scheduled vessel to call at its new Container Terminal 3 in Jebel Ali, Dubai, as it gears up to serve customers at the state-of-the-art facility.

 The first vessel to call at the port was ‘APL Phoenix’.

“We are proud to welcome the APL Phoenix to Terminal 3 as trial operations begin at our newest terminal.  As the USD 850 million Terminal 3 comes on line, it will support the growth of Dubai, the UAE and the wider region,” HE Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem, Chairman, DP World, said adding that Terminal 3 will be 30% more carbon efficient than a traditional terminal.

  Once fully operational next year, the container terminal will add a further 4 million TEU (twenty-foot equivalent container units) capacity to the port, taking total handling capacity at Jebel Ali to 19 million TEU. 

With its 21st century infrastructure and 18 metre draft, Terminal 3 gives Jebel Ali the ability to handle more of the new generation mega vessels, and as many as 10 Ultra Large Container Ships (ULCS) at the same time.

 Terminal 3 features 19 modern quay cranes remotely operated from a  control room off the quayside.

 HE Sultan bin Sulayem said that Terminal 3 was built in direct response to the feedback from customers like APL “who told us clearly they needed more capacity at Jebel Ali.  Shipping lines can now bring more of the world’s largest ships to our facilities and help improve the efficiency of the supply chain.”
