UAE’s Abu Dhabi Terminals (ADT) has selected Konecranes to supply an automated stacking crane (ASC) system for the second construction phase of its container terminal in Khalifa Port.

The second phase of the Khalifa Port Container Terminal (KPCT) involves a large expansion of the terminal area, infrastructure, container handling capacity, and the delivery of 54 Konecranes automated rail mounted gantry (ARMG) cranes.

Konecranes earlier provided 52 ARMG cranes for the first phase of KPCT container terminal.

The latest crane order will be similar to the equipment delivered in the first phase. The new cranes will have a lifting capacity of 40 tons, stacking 1-over-6 containers high. Thirty of the cranes will be nine-wide, and twenty-four will be eleven-wide.

They will be equipped with automation controls and Konecranes’ Active Load Control (ALC) system, which combines advanced sway control and horizontal fine positioning.

Inaugurated in 2012, KPCT is the region’s first semi-automated port and one of the most technologically advanced terminals, according to Abu Dhabi Terminals.
