The Super Post Panamax cranes stand at a lifting height of 55.5 metres and weigh 1,900 tonnes each. The new quay cranes are an addition to the 50 existing cranes already in operation at PTP and will complement the existing cranes in operation.
Apart from the new quay cranes, PTP has also acquired other terminal equipment such as 93 units of prime movers and 29 units of rubber tyred gantry cranes. In addition to that, two berths will also be upgraded to accommodate the new Triple E Cranes, whilst the capital dredging to deepen the channel is commencing, several key initiatives have also taken place to create a new full capacity berth to cater for mega vessels.
PTP’s investment towards comprehensive upgrading, refurbishment and replacement of terminal capacity and equipment is a true testament of its aspiration in becoming the preferred port of choice in the region.
