DP World, a leading enabler of global trade and operator of 77 marine and inland terminals across six continents, has selected CH2M’s port and maritime experts to provide design review and site supervision services in support of the delivery of the civil, mechanical and electrical works for the new Container Terminal 4 at Jebel Ali Port.
The deep-water port, located in Jebel Ali, Dubai, United Arab Emirates, is the world’s largest man-made harbour and the largest and busiest port in the Middle East. Under Phase 1, Terminal 4 will add 3.1 million TEU (twenty foot equivalent unit cargo capacity) by 2018, taking Jebel Ali Port’s total capacity to 22.1 million TEU. The port will be equipped with approximately 110 cranes with a total quay length of around 11,000 metres.
DP World will further expand Terminal 4’s capacity to a total of 7.8 million TEU in line with market demand under Phase 2, adding an additional operational yard with a quay length of 1,000 metres.
Haider Musa, CH2M’s Project Director, said: “We are delighted to continue to work in partnership with DP World to deliver this latest strategic investment, which marks a further key milestone in the development at Jebel Ali. Our 40 years of knowledge and experience at the port will serve us well in the delivery of this state-of-the-art container terminal.”
CH2M is currently providing design review and site supervision services for the marine works associated with the Container Terminal 4 project.
