The event was held in the presence of His Excellency Dr. Sultan Ahmed Al Jaber, the UAE Minister of State and Chairman of Abu Dhabi Ports, Mr. Zheng Chiping, Deputy Director of the foreign investment department of the National Development and Reform Commission of PRC and Mr. Wan Min, President of China COSCO Shipping Corporation Limited. Captain Mohamed Juma Al Shamisi, CEO of Abu Dhabi Ports and Zhang Wei, Vice Chairman and Managing Director of COSCO SHIPPING Ports Limited signed the agreement at Emirates Palace – Abu Dhabi, ushering a new prosperous journey of Abu Dhabi Ports, in line with the progressive aspirations of Abu Dhabi Vision 2030 for a more diversified economy.

CAPL SPV and AD Prots are establishing a joint venture company in 2016 to operate the new Khalifa Port Container Terminal 2 in Khalifa Port, one of the world’s fastest growing container ports and a leading hub for the Middle East, Africa and South Asia (MEASA) region. As per the agreement, the joint venture company will be entitled concession rights of Khalifa Port Container Terminal 2 for a span of 35 years, with a renewable period of 5 additional years. CSPL SPV will have the controlling stake in the joint venture company. 

COSCO SHIPPING Ports Limited will operate a container terminal with a draft depth of 18 metres, with 1200 metres of quay wall and adjacent land. The first 800 metres of the quay length (and the corresponding Concession Area) is expected to commence operations in H1 2018 and the later 400 metres (and the corresponding Expanded Concession Area) is expected to commence operations in 2020. Once the expansion areas are occupied, the Concession Area will span an area of approximately 70 hectares with 3 berths, which will add 2.4 million TEUs a year to the Port’s existing capacity of 2.5 million TEUs. The agreement includes the option for a further 600 metre of quay length in the future to allow for anticipated volume growth, the nominal annual handling capacity will increase to 3.5 million TEUs when all phases are complete, creating a new overall annual capacity of up to 6 million TEUs.

Besides Khalifa Port, COSCO SHIPPING Ports Limited operates a global network of 46 terminals and 169 berths across mainland China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Korea, Singapore, Greece, Turkey, Egypt, Belgium and the United States . Building on COSCO SHIPPING Ports’ successful operations at Khalifa Port, the agreement aims to further boost economic ties and bilateral trade between the two countries.

“The signing of the concession agreement between Abu Dhabi Ports Company and COSCO Shipping Ports Limited will significantly expand trade between China, the UAE and the broader region. This new volume will greatly enhance the UAE and Abu Dhabi’s role as a key logistics and trading hub, between East and West. It will also serve to further diversify the UAE’s dynamic and growing economy,” said H.E. Dr. Sultan Ahmed Al Jaber, UAE Minister of State and Chairman of Abu Dhabi Ports. “With the development of China’s “One Belt One Road” strategy, there is boundless potential for expanding the UAE-China relationship further. We look forward to closer collaboration with China and to creating even greater economic progress for both our nations in the years ahead.”

Mr. Wan Min, President of China COSCO Shipping Corporation Limited, said: “Abu Dhabi’s Khalifa Port is a strategic hub along the ‘One Belt One Road’, as it has unique geographical advantage for the development of terminal and logistics businesses. Its well-developed transportation and nearby ample supply of cargoes are conducive to Khalifa Port, to become the next hub port in the Middle East region. Khalifa Port Container Terminal 2 will be the second overseas terminal in which COSCO SHIPPING Ports holds the controlling interest. This investment is expected to strengthen COSCO SHIPPING Ports’ sustainable growth and create value for our shareholders. With the strong support from the large container shipping fleet of COSCO SHIPPING Group, COSCO SHIPPING Ports will dedicate its efforts to develop Khalifa Port Container Terminal 2 as a hub of the Upper Gulf region in the Middle East for international container shipping liners. We are confident that the project will stimulate the implementation of ‘One Belt One Road’ initiative, and will promote strategic cooperation between China and the UAE.”

Captain Mohamed Juma Al Shamisi, CEO of Abu Dhabi Ports, said, “The Khalifa Port is continuously growing and expanding in every aspect - adding value for its key stakeholders and the international community. Through the new synergy, COSCO SHIPPING Ports Limited will bring additional volumes to the Port - adding to Abu Dhabi Terminals’ on-going business in Abu Dhabi. It will also ensure that the Khalifa Port maintains a competitive environment in serving the shipping industry as well as local business. Along with the added capacity, the shipping giant will facilitate specialist expertise, experience, technologies, practices and knowledge transfer, increasing Abu Dhabi Ports’ competitiveness on a global scale.”

Khalifa Port, is the major container gateway port of Abu Dhabi and is strategically situated between Abu Dhabi and Dubai with excellent hinterland connections and geographic location.
