New ro-ro terminal in Pyongtaek

A new ro-ro terminal has been opened in Pyongtaek, South Korea by Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics

The new facility is jointly owned by Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics (WWL) and Eukor Car Carriers, which is joinly owned by Wallenius and Wilhelmsen (40% each) and Hyundai Motor and Kia Motors (20%).

The new Pyongtaek International Ro-Ro Terminal (PIRT), Terminal No. 11, has been developed from the ground up and, says WWL, is set to become a leading car/ro-ro transportation hub in Northeast Asia. It covers an area of 166,000 m2 and has a wharf length of 290m capable of berthing the largest generation of ro-ro vessels.

There is storage capacity for up to 5000 cars Because of the 9m high tide levels in the port, PIRT incorporates a pontoon that can handle rolling loads weighing up to 100t. In addition, the terminal has its own management and operations system and fully complies with the International Ship and Port Facility Security (ISPS).

Pyongtaek is located 70 kms south of the capital Seoul and is at the heart of a new economic development zone that the South Korean government plans to transform into an international trade and logistics hub for North East Asia.

“Our objective is to showcase PIRT as the premier terminal for cars, high and heavy construction machinery and transhipment cargo in South Korea,” said Kim Buoy, WWL’s VP, Terminal & Inland Services, Asia.

Another terminal, Pyongtaek No. 12, due for completion in October 2010, is also a joint venture between Eukor Car Carriers and WWL. Together with terminal number 11, these two new terminals will handle 600,000 CEU/year and will be one of the biggest dedicated car/ro-ro terminals in the world.

“These two new terminal projects in Northeast Asia fit in with our strategy of developing facilities which match the needs of our customers in emerging markets,” said Erik Graumann, WWL’s COO, Terminal & Inland Services.

“In addition to the Pyongtaek terminal we now have new terminal joint-venture projects in Tianjin and Shanghai. Our terminal services are an integral part of our complete factory to dealer service offering.”
