Mr. Khaw Boon Wan, Singapore’s Coordinating Minister for Infrastructure and Minister for Transport, witnessed the installation of the 221st and final caisson for Tuas Terminal Phase 1 reclamation today.

Commenting the latest milestone, Mr. Wan said: “We have been reclaiming from the sea since independence. But the Tuas reclamation project is not more of the same, it applies complex state-of-the-art engineering expertise, using caissons for higher efficiency and safety.”

Commenced in 2015, Phase 1 reclamation works are three-quarters completed and on schedule to be fully completed in 2021.

According to an official Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore’s announcement, PSA Corporation will soon begin Phase 1 terminal development of deep-water berths.

Tuas Terminal will open progressively from 2021, said MPA.

When fully completed in 2040, it will consolidate all port operations in a single location and be capable of handling up to 65 million TEUs per annum.
