Busan in ZPMC Post-Panamax Drive


Three new ZPMC super-post-panamax twin lift quay cranes with a 24-row outreach and a 49-metre height have arrived at Busan New Container Terminal (BNCT).

With this addition BNCT has a new total of 11 STS cranes with a total handling capacity of 2.5 million TEU.  

John Elliott, CEO of BNCT, said: “With no additional terminals planned to open until after 2019 in Busan, and with all other terminals in New Port operating near their maximum capacity [now], BNCT is the only container terminal able to provide Busan Port with major additional capacity, especially for mega-size vessels.

“Our expansion comes at the right time for [Busan] New Port which continues to show strong growth in volume and significant increases in both number and size of vessels calling here.”

Already in its third year of operation, BNCT has shown steep growth, handling over 1.4 million TEU in 2014, an 18% increase over 2013.
