WCN Editorial Team 29 Feb 2016 MIDDLE EAST TRANSPORT INFRASTRUCTURE

ScottishPower has completed a feasibility study to evaluate the possibility of expansion of the 440MW Cruachan Pumped Storage hydro plant near Oban, Scotland.

DP World has inked contracts with Dutco Balfour Beatty and BAM International for the new $1.6bn Container Terminal 4 on a reclaimed island in Jebel Ali Port in Dubai, UAE.

 

As part of the first phase of the project, Dutco Balfour Beatty will develop an operational yard area with a quay length of 1,200m.

 

BAM International Abu Dhabi will be responsible for the construction of a 400m bridge, as well as adjacent causeways and the 2.2km quay wall that will house the largest container vessels.

 

In the first phase, Terminal 4 will add 3.1m 20ft equivalent units (TEU) by 2018. This will boost the port’s total capacity to 22.1m TEU.

 

The terminal’s capacity will be increased to 7.8m TEU in the second phase of the project, with an additional operational yard having a quay length of 1,000m.

 

Dutco Balfour Beatty executive director Zeyad Baker said: “Dutco Balfour Beatty is honoured to be selected for this project. Our association with DP World goes back to 1976 when we undertook the construction of Jebel Ali Port.

 

“Our new partnership for this exciting new chapter in the port’s development demonstrates the long-term nature of our continuous involvement in a port that emerged four decades ago to become the world’s largest man-made harbour.”
