United Arab Shipping Company (UASC) and Gulftainer celebrated the maiden call of UASC’s 15,000 TEU M.V. Linah into Khorfakkan Container Terminal (KCT) at an event on April 10th.

The M.V. Linah is the largest UASC vessel to call at Khorfakkan Port to date, and is one of the ships built as part of UASC’s new building program; worth over USD2.3 billion and comprising 17 ships to be delivered between November 2014 and 2016, of which 11 are 15,000 TEU vessels and six are 18,800 TEU vessels.

Mr. Waleed Al Dawood, Chief Operating Officer at UASC said, “We are very proud to celebrate the arrival of our 15,000 TEU vessel to KCT with our partner, Gulftainer and a number of our key customers. The arrival of M.V. Linah at Khorfakkan Port is an indicator of KCT’s track-record in maintaining the highest standards of operational efficiency.”

“This event is also notable as it coincides with UASC’s 40th anniversary, a milestone we are very proud to share with our partners.”

Flemming Dalgaard, CEO, Gulftainer, said, “We are extremely pleased to welcome UASC’s largest ship to the Khorfakkan Container Terminal, and congratulate the company’s leadership for their successful achievements over the last 40 years, including the advanced newbuilding program. Gulftainer has made huge strides in improving our capabilities at Khorfakkan, and we thank UASC for their continued confidence in our ability to deliver to their needs.”
