Economic diversification and value-added industrial manufacturing are core components of the Abu Dhabi Economic Vision 2030. Kizad launched Area A comprising 51 square kilometers, while by 2030, Kizad Area A and B will form one of the largest industrial zones in the world at 418 sq km. Kizad supports the economic vision by offering logistics and heavy capital- and energy-intensive industrial manufacturers a business location that delivers numerous economic advantages.
Kizad’s anchor investor, Emirates Aluminum (EMAL), which aims to be one of the world’s largest single-site aluminum smelters, began operations in 2009. New logistics and heavy industry manufacturing investors are expected to begin operations from Kizad in 2013.
Kizad’s strategic location linking east and the west, and its world-class, intermodal infrastructure linking sea, air, roads and rail, gives investors easy and efficient access to over 2 billion consumers within four time zones.
