Update of Khalifa Port Master Plan, Khalifa Port Industrial Zone, Abu Dhabi

The new Khalifa Port, part of the Khalifa Port Industrial Zone project, is a deepwater port located halfway between Abu Dhabi and Dubai. Being the flagship of Abu Dhabi Ports Company, the port is intended to accommodate the largest ships existing.

In cooperation with HPC Hamburg Port Consulting Sellhorn Ingenieurgesellschaft mbH was asked to review the existing master plan for the port. Based on the requirements for the different terminals the existing master plan was updated, which included the consideration of various utility networks as well as the terminal’s illumination and pavement design. Furthermore a new phasing concept was developed, taking into account the cargo handling forecast over the next 20 years, investment costs, cost effectiveness, temporary site traffic, nautical problems, waves etc.
