Largest Container-Handling Cranes Arrive at Salalah Port

Salalah: ​The Port of Salalah is undergoing continuous development aimed at accommodating the largest-possible container vessels by utilizing advanced technologies and equipment that enable the port to speed up its operations and cut down the distances between world ports.

Salalah Port occupies a strategic location on the way to global shipping lines, typically linking the East and the West.

Keld M. Christensen, CEO of Salalah Port, said in comments that the port recently received four large Megamax container cranes, constituting the first batch of 10 cranes, each of which stands 58 metres tall and can access a height of 75 metres.

These cranes are among the largest equipment of their kind in the world and they boast new standards in terms of size and capacity, said Christensen, noting that the container terminal in Salalah Port features a long berth of 2,197 metres and a draft of 18 metres. The terminal’s current design capacity is 5 million metric tons, he added.
