Rakan Alireza, Managing Director of Arabian Chemical Terminals Ltd and Deputy Managing Director of Reza Investment Company Ltd. said: “We’re excited to be spearheading the development of our first commercial tank farm in the UAE, here in Abu Dhabi, as we previously pioneered in KSA.
“Located between Abu Dhabi, Ruwais, and Dubai industries, the new liquid terminal will not only prosper as a result of its strategic location, but will be further bolstered by Khalifa Port’s multi-modal connectivity with access to the sea and UAE’s extensive road and future GCC railway network.
‘In addition to supporting our overseas expansion strategy, the project will also provide the foundation for other potential terminal activities within the emirate of Abu Dhabi, says Kasper Castricum General Manager of Arabian Chemical Terminals in UAE.
” Beyond the development of the bulk liquid terminal, ACT is exploring different opportunities to expand its service offering at Khalifa Port and its surrounding environment. This expansion includes the facilitation of fuel bunker services for port customers, drumming and ISO filling services, the development of an independent laboratory, realisation of MARPOL slops reception facilities, ADR qualified trucking and distribution services, as well as offering stevedoring services that will support other liquid product custody transfers.
The ACT values are the foundation of our approach to business. It’s vital that our employees, contractors and joint venture partners understand and share these values. Care for Safety, Health & Environment; Integrity; Team Spirit; Commitment; Agility.
