PSA Corporation Ltd (PSA) has inaugurated Tuas Port, with the first three berths operational at Phase One of the development.
Tuas Port has 23 metres of draft alongside, with a total berth length of 26 kilometres.
At present, 500 staff are working on site at Tuas Port, with the terminal being progressively developed in four phases.
When fully operational in the 2040s, it is expected to be the world’s largest fully automated container terminal in a single location, with an annual handling capacity of 65 million TEU.
Tuas Port will encompass an extensive and well-connected supply chain and logistics ecosystem in the Tuas area – along Singapore’s western seaboard.
PSA has also built up its data analytics and digitalisation capabilities as part of Tuas Port’s modular design, allowing for flexibility and agility to respond to rapidly changing demands as it continues to develop into the 2040’s and beyond.
Peter Voser, Group Chairman of PSA International, said: “This is a momentous occasion and we are thrilled to transform our vision into reality.
“Tuas Port is where we can help to realise the immense potential of Singapore as a trade hub for the world, and where our people’s passion for excellence meets higher purpose.
“We will live up to this responsibility and continue to span new frontiers to achieve sustainable business success. I would like to express my deepest gratitude to the Government, our customers, business partners and all our stakeholders for their unwavering support all these years. I am confident that by working together alongside, we can realise even greater visions in the future.”
Tan Chong Meng, Group CEO of PSA International, added: “As an enabler of global trade, PSA has contributed to Singapore’s success as an open and connected trading economy.
“Tuas Port provides us with an opportunity to reinvigorate this mission for the digital age and I believe it will further boost trade growth flowing through Singapore. By dovetailing our port operations with the greater ecosystem in Tuas and through collaborating with like-minded partners for integrated intermodal solutions, we can better navigate the growing complexities of global supply chains.”
