Singapore’s Jurong Port Pte Ltd has commenced operations of its Combi Terminal, tailored to the requirements of multipurpose vessels.

The new Combi Terminal in Jurong Port is a one-stop terminal for vessels carrying a combination of containers and general cargo.

These vessels previously needed to call at separate terminals or berths to load or unload different cargo types, Jurong Port said.

“The establishment of our Combi Terminal is a significant milestone for Jurong Port to become a world-class multipurpose port operator and a one-stop solution provider integrating berth planning, cargo handling, storage and supporting services,” said Ooi Boon Hoe, Chief Executive Officer of Jurong Port.

The terminal would provide shortened ship turnaround time to diverse cargo carriers.

Occupying a total area of 6.6 hectares, the terminal comprises of three dedicated deepwater berths of 575 metres in length with 15.7 metre draft.

It is equipped with quay cranes that have been adapted to handle general cargo as well as containers. In addition, mobile harbour cranes can be deployed for the handling of heavy lift cargo.

Furthermore, due to the port’s multi-cargo handling capabilities, shipping company Pilbara Express Lines has revealed its plans to launch a new trade route and offer a direct liner service between Jurong Port and the Port of Dampier in North Western Australia.

The terminal is expected to increase Jurong Port’s throughput from multipurpose vessels and improve the port’s asset utilisation, the port said.
