PSA Singapore Terminals, the country’s container-port operator, plans to invest S$3.5 billion ($2.9 billion) to develop Phases 3 and 4 of its Pasir Panjang terminal, it said in an e-mailed statement today.
The planned work will include building 15 new berths, an automated container yard and unmanned, rail-mounted gantry cranes, PSA Singapore Terminals said in the statement.
When completed by 2020, the project will boost Singapore’s total container handling capacity to 50 million 20-foot equivalent units a year, it said.
The port has handled 20.88 million TEUs through August, according to the PSA Singapore Terminal website.
