This month Taiwan International Ports Corporation (TIPC) Chairman Chung-rung Wu and Evergreen Marine Corp. Chairman Anchor Chang signed a new lease agreement for container wharves S1-S5 in Port of Kaohsiung’s 7th Container Terminal.

 

“This new lease agreement bolsters Evergreen Marine’s long-term commitment to developing the Port of Kaohsiung as its key transshipment centre in East Asia while raising its overall investment in the global shipping market,” TIPC announced.

 

A total of NT$42 billion (US$1.36 billion) in public and private funds have been invested in developing the new 7th Container Terminal. “The completed terminal will provide 2,415m in new -18m berthing space, capable of servicing up to five 22,000 TEU ultra-large container vessels at a time. The handling capacity of the terminal will top 4 million TEU per year, aided by the wharves’ automated handling systems. Future plans call for the installation of additional state-of-the-art facilities at the wharves and adjacent yards, which will increase handling capacities even further and give the Port of Kaohsiung an even stronger position as a strategic hub for container transhipments”.

 

Evergreen Marine first began operating a terminal at the Port of Kaohsiung in 1986, and today operates a total of 6 wharves (Nos. 79~81 and Nos. 115~117). Some of the yard area operated by Evergreen currently operates automated stacking cranes supplied by local crane manufacturer Chin Pan Engineering, with ABB drives.

 

In 2017 Evergreen brought 3.6M TEU to Kaohsiung, 35% of the port’s total container volume for the year, “underscoring Evergreen Marine’s position as Kaohsiung’s largest container shipping client,” the port noted. It expects Evergreen will continue to grow its business at the port as it replaces older vessels with new ships and adds 20,000 TEU ULCVs to its fleet. “Evergreen’s new 20,000TEU-class ULCVs are already conducting homeport operations from the Port of Kaohsiung, and the new wharves at the 7th Container Terminal are exceptionally well positioned to carry the company forward into the future,” TIPC stated.

 

Kaohsiung is also expecting Evergreen bringing more business to the port through its membership in the Ocean Alliance, along with CMA CGM and COSCO.
