Manila International Container Terminal (MICT), International Container Terminal Services, Inc.’s (ICTSI) flagship operation at the Port of Manila, recently took delivery of eight new Mitsui hybrid rubber tired gantry (RTG) cranes for its container yard to further improve operational efficiency in light of growing volumes.

The latest acquisition expands MICT’s RTG fleet to 52 units – 40 of which are hybrids powered by a combination of lithium-ion battery and smaller diesel engine.

The MICT started using hybrid RTGs in 2018 to reduce the terminal’s carbon footprint as it ramps up efforts to become the most sustainable terminal in the Philippines.

Earlier this month ICTSI announced it will continue to expand the capacity of MICT by developing a new berth.

ICTSI posted revenues for $1.87 billion from port operations for 2021.
