CSP Abu Dhabi Terminal welcomes its first visitor the CSCL Mercury

CSCL Mercury, a 14,000 teu container vessel operated by Cosco Shipping Lines, became the first to call at CSP Abu Dhabi Terminal in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

CSP Abu Dhabi Terminal, located at the port of Khalifa, was jointly developed and operated by Cosco Shipping Ports and Abu Dhabi Ports, is the result of the 35-year agreement between Abu Dhabi Ports and Cosco Shipping Ports.

We are honoured to be the first vessel to call at CSP Abu Dhabi Terminal, which is operating efficiently and well-managed, said Liu Lei, captain of CSCL Mercury.

The vessel to call, the SCL Mercury, is registered under the flag of Hong Kong, and was delivered in 2011.

The terminal has a design capacity of 2.5m teu and starts operations with a handling capacity of 1.5m teu. The water depth of the terminal is 16.5 metres, allowing it to accommodate 20,000 teu container vessels.

The terminal was inaugurated in December last year.
