Hamad Port Achieves Workers’ Safety Milestone


QTerminals, terminal operating company providing services at Hamad Port, has made another achievement as its operations at Hamad Port achieved two million man-hours without any Lost Time Injury (LTI).

“We are pleased to announce that on December 1, 2020, #QTerminals #HamadPort operations achieved two million man-hours without any Lost Time Injury (LTI). #NewAchievment #Qatar,” QTerminlas announced on its Twitter account.

Earlier Hamad Port had achieved the milestone in workers’ safety in September 2020 when QTerminals’ operations at Hamad Port had achieved one million man-hours without any LTI.

Few days ago, QTerminals reached three million man-hours without any Lost Time Injury (LTI) during construction of Hamad Port’s Container Terminal 2. “QTerminals and its development partners are pleased to announce that they have now reached three million man-hours without any Lost Time Injury (LTI) during the construction of Container Terminal 2 (CT2 at HamadPort),” QTerminals tweeted recently.

The initial operation of Hamad Port’s Container Terminal 2 is likely to begin this month for container handling, according to an announcement made by the Ministry of Transport and Communications (MoTC), a few weeks ago.

CT2 development consists of four phases. Full operation of Phase 1 and 2 will start before the end of 2022, taking the port’s capacity to three million TEUs per year. Phases 3 and 4 will be developed later to raise the port’s operational capacity according to the local market’s needs.

The area of Phases 1 and 2 of Hamad Port’s CT2 is 380,000sqm and its quay is 624M long. Phase 1 of CT2 has been equipped with 3 STS quay cranes with advanced technology, including semi-automation and remote-control operations. STS cranes are known for being fast and extremely efficient in container handling and capable of handling latest types of vessels. Four more cranes will be added during 2021, taking the total number of cranes to seven.
