PSA Singapore Terminals (PSA) will invest SGD3.5 billion (US$2.8 billion) in developing phases three and four of the Pasir Panjang Terminal (PPT).

The new terminals will have a total of 15 berths, nearly 6,000 meters of quay length, and up to 18 meters of draft to serve the next generation of container ships, said PSA, operator of the country’s container port,  in a statement.

“When fully developed over the course of this decade, the new terminals will boost Singapore’s total container handling capacity to 50 million TEUs per year, and meet future growth of global trade and long-term needs of PSA’s customers,” the statement added.

Phases three and four will feature an automated container yard equipped with proprietary intelligent planning and operation systems, as well as unmanned, rail mounted gantry cranes running on electricity.

“With our continued focus on innovation, PSA will be better positioned to welcome the container vessels of tomorrow,” said Tan Chong Meng, group CEO of PSA.
