CGR provided planning and design services to convert an existing bulk terminal to a modern, streamlined and efficient container terminal with a capacity of 1.4 million TEU. CGR also undertook all contract documentation preparation, on site construction supervision and contract administration for the many and varied contracts involved.
Major contracts included widening and strengthening the existing wharf to enable large, modern container quay cranes to operate as well as major piling and structural concrete works, specialised container crane rail installation plus associated high voltage electrical supply for quay crane operations. Additionally one wharf approach bridge was widened and a new central approach bridge was designed and constructed.
The container stacking and handling yard required demolition of existing warehouses, some reclamation and ground improvements works, plus pavement design and construction of various loading regimes including rubber tyred gantry cranes, rail mounted gantry cranes and terminal tractor/trailers. Specialised reefer container access platforms and associated reefer power supply points have also been installed.
CGR designed all services throughout the terminal including high mast lightning towers, electrical supply, drainage, potable and fire fighting water and sewage reticulation, plus installations for future expansion works.
Other terminal infrastructure design by CGR and ultimately constructed under CGR`s supervision included a 3-storey administration building and large workshop complex for servicing port container handling equipment, entry and exit gates and inspection facilities and a major approach road.
The terminal commenced operations in early 2006 and is now operating at capacity. CGR has subsequently been involved in further expansion works.
