The decision to develop Phases 3 and 4 of Pasir Panjang Terminal (PPT) in order to meet future growth in container volume was mooted in 2004.
The Singapore Port has always played a key role in Singapore's and the region's growth, and has been a cornerstone of the country's development as an International Maritime Centre. To maintain Singapore's attractiveness as a global hub port, PSA continues to invest in terminal infrastructure, equipment and technology ahead of demand and ensures that our port remains highly efficient and competitive.
Expansion of Pasir Panjang Terminal will increase PSA's total port capacity by about 50% to 50 million TEUs. This will further strengthen Singapore's position as the world's largest transhipment hub.
The land reclamation for PPT Phases 3 and 4 are completed. PSA will spend about S$3.5 billion in best-in-class infrastructure and the latest port technology. For instance, there will be an automated container yard and unmanned rail-mounted gantry cranes that will be supported by intelligent systems. These features will enable PPT Phases 3 and 4 to serve the next generation of container ships, increase productivity and also promote environmental sustainability in port operations.
