ICTSI’s Mindanao Container Terminal enhances port equipment

Mindanao Container Terminal (MCT), International Container Terminal Services, Inc.’s (ICTSI) business unit in Misamis Oriental in the Philippines, has acquired a mobile harbor crane (MHC) to further enhance capacity and boost productivity.

According to MCT, the new machine will augment the terminal’s existing quay cranes to enhance overall vessel handling capability by enabling simultaneous handling of two longer ships. The MHC will be operational by December.

Earlier in March, MCT deployed two new rubber tired gantries to increase the efficiency of its landside operations. A side lifter will also be deployed to support MCT’s recently launched empty container depot service.

MCT’s acquisition of additional port equipment is part of its ongoing expansion programme. This comes after the 100-meter berth expansion and installation of dolphin mooring and inland bollards back in 2020.
