DP World may revive US$1.6 billion Jebel Ali terminal 4 expansion next year - The National

DP World may revive US$1.6 billion Jebel Ali terminal 4 expansion next year - The National:

"DP World, one of the biggest port operators globally, may resume development next year of the US$1.6 billion fourth terminal at its flagship Jebel Ali port, which was put on hold last year because of a softening in the container shipping market. The Nasdaq Dubai-listed company said last year it was slowing down work in Jebel Ali, the biggest port in the Middle East and North Africa, by postponing new additions to Terminal 3 into this year and putting off the construction of phase one of Terminal 4 which was scheduled for completion next year. "Current capacity at Jebel Ali is 18 million TEU (twenty-foot equivalent units). At the same time, 1.3 million TEU will be added to T3 in the second half of 2017," Sultan bin Sulaymen, DP World's chairman, said in written answers to The National's questions."
