Port of Tanjung Pelepas Electric-RTG

The Port of Tanjung Pelepas (PTP), a joint venture between the MMC Group and APM Terminals, has inked an agreement with Mitsui E&S Co., Ltd. (Mitsui) to procure 48 electric rubber tyre gantry cranes for delivery in Q3 2025.

Increased Capacity

PTP’s Chairman, Tan Sri Che Khalib Mohamad Noh, remarked that the signing of the agreement reflects PTP’s strong commitment to expanding its capacity and capability to support its customers’ growth demands.

“PTP’s strategic approach to continuously enhance efficiency and optimise its footprint has contributed tremendously to keeping the terminal’s advantages in an increasingly competitive global market,” he said.

Marco Neelsen stated that PTP is in the midst of executing a range of optimisation initiatives under its Ipsum Magna Programme to sustainably upgrade and expand its terminal facilities using purchases and application of automation and digitisation. “The new e-RTG cranes form part of our equipment modernisation strategy and are scheduled to be delivered by Q3 2025.”

45% Fewer Emissions by 2030

“The purchase is in line with PTP’s sustainability drive towards decarbonisation, whereby PTP aims to reduce 45% of its emissions by 2030, in line with the Paris Agreement. 85% of our RTG fleet is electrified, an initiative we started in 2014, and we target to reach the full 100% by early 2024,” he added. On behalf of Mitsui, Takahashi expressed his deepest gratitude to PTP for its unwavering collaboration and the order of 48 units, in addition to 35 units ordered in December 2022. Mitsui underlined its commitment to handing over the e-RTGs on time per the agreed schedule. “As a pioneer in crane manufacturing, Mitsui will keep providing high-quality products to support its customers’ port operating business,” he concluded.
