Hutchison Ports Thailand (HPT) recently welcomed the first vessel to ever call Terminal D at Laem Chabang Port.

HPT’s new Terminal D played host to Ocean Network Express’ (ONE’s) M.V. MOL GRANDEUR. The vessel was met by delegates of Terminal D in the afternoon of 18 June, and the vessel departed Laem Chabang Port one day later on 19 June. The M.V. MOL GRANDEUR has a capacity of 5,556 TEUs, with length of 275 meters and width of 40 meters.

The vessel was met with new remote-controlled quay cranes and remote-controlled rubber tyred gantry cranes that HPT used to discharge container boxes from the vessel to the yard with fast, accurate, and safe operations.

Upon completion of all phases, Terminal D will be the largest and most advanced deep-sea container terminal in Thailand. One of the most notable features of the new terminal is that it will be the first and only terminal at the Port to feature remote control technologies. The new terminal is a clear sign of the commitment that HPT has to Laem Chabang Port and Thailand at large.
