ICTSI Motukea welcomes first gearless vessel_0

Motukea International Terminal (MIT), a unit of International Container Terminal Services, Inc. (ICTSI) at Port Moresby, handled Papua New Guinea’s first international gearless vessel.

The Indonesian-flagged MERATUS SAMARINDA operates without cranes which relies on shore-based equipment at its ports of call to load and unload cargo. 

Last year, MIT took delivery of its second mobile harbour crane as part of the ongoing programme to increase berth productivity at the terminal.

In a recent statement, the company said: “This achievement highlights the trust and confidence that Meratus Line has placed in ICTSI South Pacific and opens the door for more gearless vessels to call at both SPICT and MIT.”

Earlier this year, the terminal operator outlined a proposal for the expansion of the Victoria International Container Terminal (VICT), its wholly owned subsidiary in the Port of Melbourne, Australia.

More recently, ICTSI announced that it is adding another berth at the Manila International Container Terminal (MICT), the Philippines’ main gateway for international trade.
