Incheon New Port opens to 12,000-TEUers after 7 years of construction


The second container terminal at South Korea's Incheon New Port has opened after seven years of construction with a quay length of 800 metres to accommodate mega vessels, with the arrival of its first ship, the 12,000-TEU Hanjin Mexico, the largest ship the facility can handle.
The vessel is deployed on the Korea-Philippines-Indonesia (KPI) service, calling at ports in China, Singapore and Indonesia, starting from Manila on a weekly basis. Up to now, HJIT has secured four routes connecting South Korea, China and Southeast Asia, reported Business Korea.
HJIT is equipped with five rail mounted quayside cranes (RMQC) that can handle 22 container rows, a container terminal yard with seven rows, and 14 automated rail mounted gantry cranes (ARMGC) enabling the handling of five-tiered and nine rows. In addition, 11 buildings including a monitoring and operation building with operating system and terminal operation equipment.
HJIT is expected to contribute greatly to the operation of Incheon New Port along with the SunKwang New Container Terminal (SNCT) which commenced operations last June. The Incheon Port Authority aims to raise the handling capacity to 4.5 million TEU by 2025.
Saud IPA president Yoo Chang Keun: "We will be sure to achieve our annual target 2.5 million TEU by vitalising Incheon New Port and HJIT."
