ICTSI upgrades equipment at flagship Manila International Container Terminal

International Container Terminal Services Inc (ICTSI) has upgraded the country’s largest fleet of container-handling equipment at Manila International Container Terminal (MICT) with four new hybrid rubber-tired gantries from Japan.

The new RTGs, manufactured by Mitsui Engineering & Shipbuilding (MES), are part of the total 16-unit fleet that runs on a combination of 22kVah Li-ion battery and a smaller diesel engine - expected to reduce terminal emissions by up to 40%. 

Eight more hybrid RTGs, along with another pair of super post-panamax quay cranes are expected to be delivered before the end of the third quarter of 2019. 

On full delivery, the MICT fleet will be composed of 18 quay cranes and 58 RTGs – the largest containerized cargo handling fleet in the Philippines.
