Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries Co. announced to Korean media last week that it has received an order from PSA Singapore for four large double trolley STS cranes for the Tuas Mega Port project.


Other details disclosed were that the cranes will be delivered by 2022, that the cranes will have a remote control operating system, and that the order includes an option for another four units. PSA has been tendering repeatedly for an STS crane automation and remote control system that lets one operator manage two cranes simultaneously, but it is not known at this stage whether the Hyundai cranes will be controlled in this manner.


Hyundai is well known to the PSA, having supplied several 60T Portainer STS cranes with a 56m outreach for its Pasir Panjang terminal.

There was plenty of talk at TOC Asia in Singapore recently about who will be supplying the rest of the cranes for the initial stages of Tuas. Suppliers did not comment directly but it is understood ZPMC is supplying at least 20 STS cranes and a large number of ASCs.


The first ASC tender was for 84 ASCs with an option for an additional 22 units. This is rumoured to have been split between two suppliers: ZPMC and Wuxi Huadong Heavy Machinery Co Ltd (HDHM). This has not been confirmed by PSA or the suppliers themselves at this point.


HDHM is also well known to PSA, having supplied remote control RMGs in 2018 for the PSA International terminal in Panama (pictured). HDHM has also supplied similar cranes for Busan Newport in Korea (six units in 2016).
