Ports in Croatia and Malaysia will be upgraded with new equipment, with APM Terminals investing EU100 million on electrifying Rijeka Gateway’s container handling equipment fleet.

Rijeka Gateway, a joint venture between APM Terminals and ENNA Logic, will add more than 60 pieces of electric equipment, including ship-to-shore (STS) cranes and rubber-tyred gantry cranes, with the first delivery due in July 2024.

The port is expected to begin operations in 2025 with an annual capacity of 650,000 twenty-foot equivalent units (TEUs), once the construction is complete.

At the end of phase two of the development, capacity is expected to be 1,055,000 TEU a year.

The full fleet of electrified equipment will comprise four STS cranes, 15 rubber-tyred gantry cranes, two rail-mounted gantry cranes, 28 electric terminal tractors and 14 electric vehicles.

“At APM Terminals, we have an ambitious goal of reaching net-zero by 2040,” says Sahar Rashidbeigi, Head of Decarbonisation in APM Terminals.

“To reach this goal and decarbonise our operations, we need to reduce energy usage, replace fossil-fuel driven equipment with battery-electric and decarbonise our grid using renewable energy.” 

APM Terminals is currently piloting electrification at its ports in Jordan, the US, Spain and Egypt.

Meanwhile, Port of Tanjung Pelepas (PTP) in Malaysia, a joint venture between APM Terminals and the MMC Group, has agreed to buy five ultra large container vessel (ULCV) quay cranes from Shanghai Zhenhua Heavy Industries Co Ltd (ZPMC).

"This latest investment in equipment emphasises PTP’s dedication to efficiently handle the rising volume of containerised cargo at its terminal, ultimately strengthening regional trade dynamics," says PTP chairman Tan Sri Che Khalib Mohamad Noh.

PTP is Malaysia’s busiest transshipment hub with a capacity to handle 13 million TEUs annually.
