Malaysia’s Port of Tanjung Pelepas (PTP) has ordered 48 electric rubber tyre gantry cranes (e-RTGs) from Mitsui E&S as part of a modernisation strategy.

PTP chief executive officer Marco Neelsen says the order is part of the company’s Ipsum Magna Program to sustainably upgrade and expand its terminal facilities with automation and digitisation.

The e-RTGs are scheduled to be delivered by the third quarter of 2025.

“The purchase is in line with PTP’s sustainability drive towards decarbonisation, whereby PTP aims to reduce 45% of its emissions by 2030, in line with the Paris Agreement,” Neelsen says, adding that 85% of the company’s RTG fleet is already electrified.

“We target to reach the full 100% by early 2024,” Neelsen says.

The order of 48 units is in addition to 35 units ordered from Mitsui in December 2022.

The Port of Tanjung Pelepas is Malaysia’s busiest transshipment hub with a capacity to handle 13 million TEUs (twenty-foot equivalent unit) annually.

PTP, a joint venture between the MMC Group and APM Terminals, is currently ranked 15th in the world top container ports.
