The new Asyad Container Terminal in Duqm, Oman, has started operations.

Part of Asyad Group, Asyad Ports launched the new container terminal in collaboration with Port of Duqm and the Special Economic Zone at Duqm to offer more integrated logistics solutions.

The international container terminal aims to serve as a gateway for international shipping routes and connections to Africa, the Middle East, and the Indian subcontinent.

With a quay length of over 1,000 metres, and a yard storage capacity of 26,000 teus and over 600 reefer plugs, the terminal also consists of three berths capable of berthing and handling three ships at a time.

It is equipped with four remotely operated 65-tonne twin lift STS cranes and twelve 50-tonne Rubber-Tyred Gantry (RTG) cranes. In addition to their 71-metre outreach and 18-metre back reach, the cranes are fitted with a host of fifth-gen technologies, including optic fibre data transfer systems for remote operation and smart driving systems.

The port’s facilities and deep-water berths can accommodate the latest generation of mega-container vessels.

“The new container terminal at Duqm Port advances vital supply chain solutions for Oman and the global shipping sector,” said Ahmed Al Abri, CEO of Asyad Ports.

“This project is a reflection of our expertise, technical capabilities and strong confidence granted to us from our global customers to operate commercial ports and terminals, facilitating crucial growth strategies for the world.
