Abu Dhabi’s Khalifa Port Deploys Navis SPARCS N4

Press Release
Monday, October 01, 2012

Region’s first semi-automated terminal relies on SPARCS N4 to handle next generation container ships & higher rates of container exchange.

Navis, a part of Cargotec Corporation, announce that Khalifa Port, located in Abu Dhabi, UAE, has successfully launched commercial operations with the company’s advanced terminal operating system (TOS), SPARCS N4.

Khalifa Port, developed by Abu Dhabi Ports Company (ADPC) and operated by Abu Dhabi Terminals (ADT), is the region’s only semi-automated terminal using SPARCS N4 and will handle container traffic transferred from Mina Zayed port by early 2013.

“We are thrilled that SPARCS N4 was instrumental in helping to give Khalifa Port the highest state of the art container terminal facilities in the Middle East and North Africa,” said Bill Walsh, president and CEO, Navis. “Through the use of semi-automated technology solutions, Khalifa Port will be able to facilitate some of the world’s largest mega container ships like it did with the 14,000 container MSC Bari on September 1, 2012, solidifying the region’s future as one of most advanced trade hubs in the world.”

Khalifa Port’s developers, ADPC, were already familiar with Navis’ terminal operating systems from its use and success at Abu Dhabi Terminal-operated Mina Zayed, and selected Navis SPARCS N4 due to its ability to provide a proven solution and overall market leadership.

SPARCS N4 is Navis’ latest generation TOS, allowing customers the flexibility and scalability needed to run their operations at the lowest possible total cost of ownership–from a single terminal to multiple terminals spanning numerous geographic locations managed from one central location.
