KCT expansion at advanced stage

  • DP Word, PSA International & Terminal Link Consortium shortlisted for million-dollar project

The expansion of Jamaica’s Kingston Container Terminal (KCT) is at an advanced stage with a concessionaire for the multi-million dollar project to be named by the first quarter of next year.

Speaking to reporters, Audrey Sewell, permanent secretary for the Jamaican ministry of transport, works and housing, announced that a shortlist of bidders for the expansion and modernisation of KCT has now been agreed, with DP World, PSA International, and Terminal Link Consortium making the final cut.

Sewell added that, following the completion of a borehole study, the three companies will be invited to respond to a Request for Proposal (RFP), report the Jamaica Information Service.

“Based on the schedule, we are hoping that the RFP will be out by the end of December and by mid-April into May, we should be finalising the identification of a preferred bidder,” she said.

The expansion of KCT will enable the facility to accommodate 14,500 TEU vessels, set to transit the Panama Canal from 2016.
