5th Busan New Container Terminal completed
Tuesday, November 29, 2011, 09:22:29 Paul Yoon ckyoon7@paran.com
The 5th Container Terminal under construction in Busan New Container Terminal (BNCT) will be completed with four new berths on Nov. 29 this year, four years after it has started. BNCT will begin to operate 2-3 Phase BNCT on Jan. 1 next year after one month test operation.

2-3 Phase BNCT, which has been constructed purely under the private funding of KW 510.8 billion without the government’s financial support, has a total area space of 840,000m2 (comparable to 120 football play grounds combined) capable of simultaneously accommodating four boxships of 50,000 grt each. In particular, the new container terminal in BNCT is expected to maximize its efficiency in container handling thanks to the automated terminal operation on the back of the state-of-the art stevedoring equipment including unmanned and automatic yard cranes, and straddle carriers, etc., under the vertical layout system first introduced in Asia.

Meantime, as the new container terminal goes into its full operation in the beginning next year, it is expected to first preferably accommodate ships controlled by CMA-CGM and KMTC who are shareholders in BNCT.
