Development of Singapore’s new-generation Tuas Port commences


PSA Corporation Ltd (PSA) celebrated a significant milestone last week with the Prime Minister of Singapore, Mr Lee Hsien Loong, placing a torch on the grounds of Tuas Port to symbolise the start of a new and exciting chapter in the nation’s rich maritime history.
Tuas Port represents the future of the Singapore Transhipment Hub. With 26 km of deepwater berths (up to 23 metres chart datum) and capable of handling 65 million TEUs annually, Tuas Port is designed to meet and exceed the future demands of the world’s largest mega vessels, mega alliances and mega networks, highlighted a release.


To deliver new heights of efficiency, productivity and environmental sustainability, Tuas Port incorporates innovations such as intelligent data-driven operations management systems, wharf and yard automation, full-electric automated guided vehicles as well as smart engineering and power management platforms.


To be progressively developed in four phases, Tuas Port’s first berths are scheduled to commence operations in 2021. When completed in 2040, Tuas Port is anticipated to be the world’s single largest fully automated terminal, the release said.


Beyond container handling capabilities, Tuas Port will also be a key nucleus and multiplier of a wider Tuas Ecosystem. Comprising synergistic industries and supply chain nodes interlinked by a seamless mesh of physical and digital connections, the Tuas Ecosystem is poised to orchestrate creative supply chain solutions to further the connectivity of Singapore’s future economy.


PSA’s three city terminals at Tanjong Pagar, Keppel and Brani will move to Tuas Port by 2027. By 2040, Pasir Panjang Terminals will be consolidated at Tuas Port, the release added.
