Port operator PSA Singapore (PSA) has unveiled plans for a strategic expansion of its Jurong Island Terminal (JIT) in response to the growing demand for efficient, and resilient supply chain solutions from industries situated on Jurong Island.

In collaboration with JTC, the managing entity of Jurong Island, PSA wants to expand to enhance the terminal’s annual handling capacity to 300,000 TEUs to meet projected demand.

The expansion plan includes the development of new dangerous goods (DG) handling and cargo transloading facilities.

Scheduled for completion by 2025, the expansion aligns with Singapore’s Green Plan 2030, supporting Jurong Island’s transformation into a sustainable energy and chemicals park.

Jurong Island, located on the northwestern seafront, serves as the epicenter of Singapore’s energy and chemicals sector, spanning 3,000 hectares and housing over 100 global companies engaged in refining, olefins production, and chemical manufacturing operations.

To address the evolving needs of industries on Jurong Island, PSA’s JIT currently offers twice-daily barge sailings connecting beneficial cargo owners (BCOs) to PSA’s main hubs at Tuas, Pasir Panjang, and Brani.

PSA’s barge service has gained traction, with JIT volumes witnessing a  year-on-year growth of 13% in 2023, totaling a record-breaking 149,000 TEUs.

“The port has always been a gateway and enabler for other pillars of Singapore’s economy, offering reliable, resilient and competitive access to global sources and markets. The collaboration between PSA and JTC to expand JIT ensures that current and future enterprises in Singapore’s energy and chemicals sector will continue to reap these benefits in the years ahead, and do so in more sustainable ways,” Nelson Quek, Regional CEO Southeast Asia, PSA International, said.

“Barging volumes on Jurong Island are set to rise with increasing demand for sustainable logistics. JIT’s expansion is poised to meet this growth, and collaboration with partners like PSA is key in our journey to make Jurong Island a sustainable Energy and Chemicals park,”Alvin Tan, ACEO, JTC, said.
