ICTSI gets nod for MICT expansion

The Philippine Ports Authority approved capacity improvements at Manila International Container Terminal (MICT), the flagship operation of International Container Terminal Services, Inc (ICTSI)

Foremost among these improvements is the first phase construction of Berths 7 and 8, set to begin on 15 October. The second phase, to begin in 19 February pending final approvals, will add full back up area for the future berths 9 and 10. The berth expansion, all with a controlling depth of 13.5-14.5m, will further strengthen MICT’s capacity to service the world’s larger box ships and the increasing volume that comes with them.

 

Christian R Gonzalez, ICTSI Global Corporate Head, said: “On top of our commitments, the construction of these berths is our response to the need for an increase in capacity and increased productivity over the longer term. We also need to accommodate system changes, such as the steady increase in vessel size, the consolidation of major shipping players, and the introduction of rail services.”

Along with the berth expansion will be the addition of yard space with the construction of the back-up area for berths 9 and 10. When completed, this additional area will give the terminal substantial flexibility to deal with the increasing impact of weather-related issues and changes in the regulatory environment.

 

Complementing these capacity improvements are the upcoming arrivals of 16 new Paceco rubber-tyred Transtainers from Mitsui in 2019, with the first eight RTGs available by April next year. Two more ZPMC STS cranes are expected to be delivered by next year. Three were delivered earlier this year and are now in operation.
