ADPC’s Mina Zayed has taken delivery of Etihad Rail’s first wagons, to be used in the Western Region. The Chinese-manufactured wagons were offloaded from the King Spirit.
Tony Douglas, CEO, ADPC commented: “We congratulate Etihad Rail on the historic delivery of its waggons at Mina Zayed. We’re looking forward in particular to Etihad Rail running its freight service to Khalifa Port from 2016. This will boost the port’s transport services and is a vital milestone for the megaproject Khalifa Port and Khalifa Industrial Zone Abu Dhabi (Kizad)”.
Etihad Rail’s first liveried locomotives are expected to arrive in Abu Dhabi in Q1, 2013. The company is tasked with building the first rail network across the UAE, and extending to the GCC and beyond.
