ADPC to handle the export logistics of finished aluminium products from Emirates Aluminium (EMAL) Khalifa site
Abu Dhabi Ports Company (ADPC) has this week signed a 10-year agreement with Emirates Aluminium (EMAL), to handle the export logistics of finished aluminium products from EMAL’s production site.
The signed agreement covers all of the handling operations and transport logistics for the finished products from EMAL’s site to the container freight station and export terminal at Khalifa Port. The volume of exported metal will grow gradually from 600,000 metric tonnes in 2014 to 750,000 in 2015 onwards.
EMAL’s site in Khalifa Industrial Zone Abu Dhabi (Kizad), adjacent to the port, houses one of the largest industrial projects in the UAE, one of the biggest single site smelter in the world and the fastest to produce 1.3 million tonnes of hot metal.
Mohamed Al Shamisi, acting CEO of ADPC, and Saeed Fadhel Al Mazrooei, president and CEO of EMAL, signed the agreement earlier this week.
