Abu Dhabi Terminals (ADT) has selected Konecranes to be the supplier of an automated stacking crane (ASC) system for the second phase expansion of its container terminal in Khalifa Port Container Terminal (KPCT).

As informed, ADT has placed an order with Konecranes for a total of 54 automated rail mounted gantry (ARMG) cranes.

The value of the deal has not been disclosed.

Konecranes has previously delivered 52 ARMG cranes for the first phase of KPCT, which went live in December 2012.

The second phase involves a large expansion of the terminal area, infrastructure and container handling equipment including the delivery of 54 Konecranes ARMGs.

ADT has, along with Abu Dhabi Ports’ multi-billion-dirham port expansion project and the Khalifa Port South Island project, embarked on the expansion of KPCT. This project will see the terminal’s capacity grow from its current 2.5 million TEU to 5.5 million TEU by 2021.
