Features

KIZAD’s multiple industrial clusters make it possible to allocate land by grouping certain industries and service providers together based on how best they can benefit one another. This way, value is created by leveraging anchor tenants and facilitating synergies and operational efficiencies.

It is a circle of value creation; products being produced by one investor can be taken up by others within the zone.

This gathering of collective expertise also creates a business environment that fosters research and growth and the development of skills and talent.

At KIZAD, they strive to design innovative solutions that offer your business a significant advantage.

Hot Metal Road: A specially constructed roadway that enables cost-effective and energy-efficient transport and delivery of molten aluminium.

Modular Path: An eight-lane highway designed to enable large plant and equipment to be transported directly between Khalifa Port and the investors’ facilities.

Sea Water Cooling System: Specifically built to support heavy industries such as our anchor tenant EMAL (Emirates Aluminium); this system ensures that water returning to the sea is cooled down and brings no harm to marine life.

KIZAD’s future service offerings will include housing facilities within a 10 minute drive from KIZAD Area A.

Currently under design – and conforming to international standards outlined by Abu Dhabi’s labour rules and regulations – the accommodation will cater to four tiers of operative staff: labourers, semi-skilled, skilled workforce and supervisors.

KIZAD offers a fast and easy way for your employees to have a work visa.

Enabling Global Trade

The Khalifa Industrial Zone Abu Dhabi (KIZAD) is Abu Dhabi’s first integrated trade, logistics, industrial and free zone, offering outstanding market access, lower operating costs, and greater ease of doing business in the region and globally.

Abu Dhabi Ports’ increasing investments in maritime infrastructure have boosted the annual growth of the Emirate’s import and exports that has also reflected in the company’s year-on-year business volumes. This upsurge, coupled with rising spends in KIZAD, supports the company’s contribution to the UAE economy.

The industrial and free zone hub has excellent access to markets through a world-class transportation infrastructure with multimodal connectivity by road, ports, air and future rail networks. KIZAD has currently attracted more than 200 national and international investors, and a total of 17.4 million square metres of land leased that represent a total investment of more than AED65 billion. It has also recently attained ISO 9001:2015 quality certification, the latest version of the world’s most popular quality management system standard.
