Singapore's PSA Panama starts phase 2 of west bank container terminal

SINGAPORE's PSA Panama International Terminal (PSA Panama) has started phase two expansion of its container terminal on the west bank of the Panama Canal, reports London's Ship Technology.

After completion of works, PSA Panama will have an annual handling capacity of two million TEU, handled by 11 quay cranes with a 24-row outreach and well as 1.1-kilometre quayline.

"The groundbreaking ceremony symbolises PSA's continuing commitment towards the vision of developing Panama into a hub for the region," said PSA International CEO Tan Chong Meng.

"Our country will have state of the art facilities to serve containerships with a capacity of 18,000 TEU," he said.

The terminal is expected to start operations before the end of 2016, about the time of the opening of the expanded Panama Canal.

Said Panama President Juan Carlos Varela: "Panama will continue to work closely with PSA Panama International Terminal and we are sure that when the expansion of the container terminal ends, our country will have state of the art facilities to serve containerships with a capacity of 18,000 TEU."
