Due to increasing container trade and container vessel visits, the current port development had reached capacity and the quay needed to be extended and a fourth berth created.

New works include the construction of a new 430m tubular piled quay wall, which was designed to tie into the end of the existing berth 3 and to allow the future construction of berth 5.

Also, the new ship to shore cranes will run on crane rails mounted on the front quay wall cope beam and a rear piled crane support beam, said the company.
