Building the leading maritime capital of the world
Surbana Jurong has been working tirelessly on site since the start, managing the project with some 2,000 engineers and technical personnel from the client, contractor and Surbana Jurong, at its peak, to ensure quality and on-time design and delivery. This mega project has put Surbana Jurong in good stead for more opportunities in the maritime and port sectors.
With the final caisson installed, reclamation works for Phase 1 are three-quarters done, and the Tuas Terminal will have two berths for ships by 2021. The two berths will operate alongside existing container terminals at Pasir Panjang, Keppel and Brani which will be progressively shut down when their leases expire and Singapore’s port operations are consolidated at Tuas Terminal from 2027.
The Tuas Terminal will be developed in four phases over a span of some 30 years, and when fully operational in 2040, it will be capable of handling up to 65 million twenty-foot equivalent units per annum, which is nearly double of today’s capacity.
