PIL Celebrates with PSA on Grand Opening of Tuas Port

On 1 Sep 2022, PSA Singapore opened Tuas Port, being the first three berths operational at Phase One of the development. When fully operational in the 2040s, it’s expected to be the world’s largest fully automated container terminal in a single location, with an annual handling capacity of 65 million TEUs.

PIL was honored to have its 6600 TEU Singapore flag vessel Kota Cabar alongside PSA Tuas Port as part of the proceedings of the official grand opening. Guest of Honor Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, together with Minister for Transport S Iswaran, Senior Minister of State for Transport Chee Hong Tat, the PSA team and other guests, watched as the fully automated cranes at Tuas Port demonstrated the moving of containers from Kota Cabar.

Mr SS Teo, Executive Chairman, PIL and Mr Lars Kastrup, CEO, PIL, congratulated the master and crew of Kota Cabar for working well with PSA to deliver an outstanding performance.

As per comments provided to Singapore’s Straits Times, Mr Kastrup said, “As Tuas Port opens in phases, the container traffic currently splits among the various city terminals will be migrated and consolidated, reducing inter-terminal transfer time and domestic emissions,” he added. “This would help bring down cost through economies of scale and improved efficiencies.”

PIL, a home-grown Singapore shipping line, is immensely proud to play a role and witnessed firsthand this historic moment of Tuas Port, seen as a, “game changer” and a vital driving force for Singapore’s economy while reinforcing the country’s status as an international maritime center.
