Infrastructure company Dutco Balfour Beatty has been announced as one of the key developers of the first phase of construction for DP World’s ongoing Terminal 4 project, in which it will be responsible for developing the operational yard, with a quay length of 1,200 metres, according to Emirates247.
Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem, Chairman and CEO at DP World, said: “We are excited to see construction work going ahead as planned for Container Terminal 4 in the run up to Expo 2020. We continue to support the transformation of Dubai into the world’s smartest city.
“This terminal is the big idea that will change the way ports work in the future. We will deploy the latest technology in equipping our quays and yards, and run them with the most sophisticated terminal operation systems.
“We have a long track record of investing proactively to expand capacity at our operations to meet changing customer needs. We are building Terminal 4 from the ground up, which enables us to future proof it for smart container ships emerging in the future.”
Terminal 4 will be equipped with semi-automated quay cranes, which aim to provide operational efficiencies and safe working conditions for employees.
The port will be equipped with at least 110 cranes with a total quay length of around 11,000 metres.
