First Phase of Singapore’s TUAS Port Inaugurated
Singapore has taken another step forward in its ambition to become one of the world’s leading maritime hubs, with the inauguration of its TUAS Port.
The inauguration, which was carried out by PSA Corporation Ltd (PSA), saw the first three berths become operational at Phase One of the development.
The TUAS Port is expected to be developed in four phases over the next 30 years. Once completed, the port will be capable of handling up to 65 million TEUs annually, making it the world’s single largest container port.
The design of the TUAS Port will incorporate finger-piers with caisson quay walls in order to maximise limited land and sea space while creating 115 hectares more land. It is expected that the port will be able to accommodate mega container ships exceeding 450m in length.
Commenting on the inauguration of Phase One of the development, 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”.
The TUAS Port will also include an extensive and well-connected supply chain and logistics ecosystem along Singapore’s western seaboard. The port will also leverage technology and automation to enhance its capability to ‘orchestrate supply chains and better support customers in managing cargo flows’.
