Oman's Sohar OCIT container terminal docks 10,000-TEU APL Savannah

5/27/2014 8:45:20 AM

SOHAR Port's new container terminal, OCIT, has docked its largest containership of 10,000-TEU APL Savannah at its Terminal C with its 18 metre depth alongside.

The OICT, a US$130 million joint venture between Hong Kong's Hutchison Port Holdings (HPH), the government of Oman, Steinweg of Netherlands and a number of Omani investors, has increased the port's annual capacity to 1.5 million TEU.

The maiden call of the APL Savannah, arriving from Abu Dhabi, spent around 17 hours at the terminal for the loading and discharging of boxes, then going to Singapore.

OICT will enable Oman to realise economies of scale to further advance the country's economy and trade growth, said OICT chief executive officer Rashid Jamil Syed, ahead of a welcoming ceremony.

Terminal C, located on the western side of the Jindal Shadeed plant, allows for the future expansion of OICT's facility in line with volume growth.
