King Abdullah Port Completes Handling Of 3,200 Tons Of General Cargo For Petro Rabigh

King Abdullah Port has announced the successful completion of the last phase of handling 3,200 tons of machines for the Petro Rabigh Phase II upgrading, a task that required very accurate handling and transport techniques. Five of the largest international companies cooperated during the process of transporting the cargo from outside the Kingdom until its arrival in King Abdullah Port and then on to the Petro Rabigh Project.

The unloading and handling processes were carried out smoothly in the bulk and general cargo terminal thanks to King Abdullah Port’s state-of-the-art technologies and large cranes, which enable the port to handle huge volumes of cargo for the megaprojects currently being implemented in the Kingdom. The industrial equipment included steamers, splitter condensers, heat pump desuperheaters, and debutanizer reboilers.

Bulk and general cargo activities began at the port during 2017, following the granting of the concession to operate the berths of bulk and general cargo terminal to AMSteel. Since then, the company has demonstrated its efficiency and excellence through the fast and efficient handling of cargo due to its great capabilities and mobile cranes, each of which can handle up to 140 tons. The annual throughput of the port’s bulk and general cargo terminal is expected to increase to 15 million tons upon completion of the facility.

Run by the Ports Development Company, King Abdullah Port is the first port in the region to be fully owned, developed and operated by the private sector. It has been listed as the world’s fastest-growing container port and one of the 100 largest ports globally after less than four years of operation. 10 of the largest shipping lines work at the port to offer integrated services to importers and exporters. King Abdullah Port’s development plan is proceeding at a steady pace and it is set to consolidate its place among the leading ports worldwide. Its advanced facilities and proximity to a bonded and re-export zone and logistics park provide world-class logistics support for clients and enable them to achieve their desired growth.
