Jeddah - Arab Today

The recent visit of Ahmed Mohammed Salem Al-Futaisi, minister of transport and communications, and Sultan bin Salim Al-Habsi, chairman of the board of Sohar Port and Freezone and secretary general of the Supreme Council for Planning, marked the completion of Terminal C at Oman International Container Terminal (OICT) in Sohar Port.
The visit included the opening of the new Operations Control Centre (OCC), and the inauguration of a state-of-the-art Remote Control Crane Centre. The new facility allows the remote operation of recently installed quayside cranes that have sufficient reach to load and unload 20,000 TEU ships. As a taste of things to come, the first visit of a 13,000 TEU vessel to Sohar Port, the MV MSC Altair at 366 meters was the largest container vessel to visit the Omani logistics hub. 
OICT is moving into a new era of automation in Sohar, in line with continued growth in container throughput that has more than doubled in just 18 months. In addition to faster turnaround times facilitated through automated loading and unloading systems, OICT now boasts an online truck appointment system.
The new communications software schedules container truck arrival times at the terminal through direct contact with the truck operators and drivers, reducing waiting times and minimizing environmental impact. 
Albert Pang, CEO of OICT, said: “Our investments in Sohar have helped to create the world-class facility we can see working at peak efficiency today. OICT is handling more frequent direct calls from mega-vessels at Terminal C, which can handle the latest class of 20,000 TEU container ships.”
In addition to the new quayside cranes, OICT has invested heavily in new rubber-tire gantry cranes (RTGCs) to further increase efficiency in the stack yards. The old container Terminal B is now being fully reconstructed as Sohar Food Zone.
