Hari ini saya berpeluang melawat tapak pembinaan pelabuhan terbesar di dunia, Khalifa Port di Talaweeh, Abu Dhabi. Selain pelabuhan, sebuah kawasan perindustrian dagangan bebas juga sedang dibina.

Kalau di Dubai, Burj Khalifa terkenal sebagai menara tertinggi di dunia, di Abu Dhabi, Khalifa Port adalah pelabuhan terbesar apabila siap nanti.

Khalifa adalah presiden UAE dan raja Abu Dhabi.

Masa ini masih saujana padang pasir menghala ke Teluk Arab. Masih sibuk dengan earthwork dan tambakan di laut.

Melihat maklumat dibawah (dalam bahasa Inggeris), banyak peluang kerjaya dan bisnes dengan penduduk dianggar mencapai 30 ribu orang bila siap.

Abu Dhabi government plans to develop Khalifa Port and Industrial Zone (KPIZ) at Taweelah and mandated Abu Dhabi Ports Company) to oversee the project.

The Port and the Industrial Zone will be developed separately. The Khalifa Port will be developed in 5 phases and will include a container handling terminal and piers for handling raw and bulk cargos. The Port will replace Abu Dhabi's largest existing port, Mina Zayed by 2012. The Mina Zayed port will then be redeveloped into a residential and commercial area. Khalifa Industrial Zone will be developed in 2 Areas (A and B). It will comprise of free zones, offering 100% foreign ownership to companies and individuals.

KPIZ will cater to a number of industrial clusters, including base metals, heavy machinery, transport vehicle assembly, chemicals, shipyards, building materials, processed foods and beverages, light manufacturing and assembly, small and medium enterprises, trade and logistics, information and communication technology, alternative energy and others.

In November 2009, the study of the concept master plan for Khalifa Industrial Zone Area B and the workforce accommodation area was under execution.

In March 2011, Area A of Khalifa Industrial Zone is expected to be completed.

In Q4 2012, the first phase of Khalifa Port is expected to be completed.

In 2030, the overall project is expected to be completed (delayed from 2028).
