ICTSI Manila finishes berth expansion to handle over 3.3m TEU

At its flagship, Manila International Container Terminal (MICT), International Container Terminal Services, Inc. (ICTSI) recently finalized a berth expansion project.

The project will increase MICT's annual handling capacity to over 3.3million TEUs.

The project is slated to Fastrack the Philippines' road to economic reboot, following trade flow facilitation complications from last year.

Cross-examining the project and its subprojects, we see that it includes berth expansion plans, where another 150 meters is added to Berth 7, resulting in a 600-meter contiguous berth together with the neighboring Berth 6. The result is vessels over 8,000 TEU can now be in these terminals. The two berths presently have five quay cranes, with a layout for up to six cranes.

In the near future, MICT is actively planning for the acquisition of eight environmentally-friendly hybrid rubber-tired gantries (RTGs) in 2021, adding to its fleet of 32 RTGs already in place in the port.

Expansion in the container yard is supposed to complement the berth expansion projects. At the same time, the MICT is refurbishing Berths 1 to 5 and their backup areas keeping in light the next 25 years of operation.
