Cover Story

ICTSI wins concession in Port of Melbourne, Australia International Container Terminal Services, Inc. (ICTSI), through its Australian subsidiary, Victoria International Container Terminal Ltd. (VICTL), has signed a contract in Melbourne with the Port of Melbourne Corp. (POMC) for the design, construction, commissioning, operation, maintenance and financing of the Terminal and Empty Container Park (ECP) at Webb Dock East in the Port of Melbourne. VICTL is 90 percent owned by ICTSI through ICTSI Far East Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary, and 10 percent by Anglo Ports Pty Ltd. (Anglo Ports). The contract grants VICTL the rights to design, build and commission the new terminal at berths Webb Dock East 4 and Webb Dock East 5; design, build and commission the new ECP at Webb Dock East; and operate the Terminal and ECP until 30 June 2040. “We are excited with this new concession that marks a milestone for us, it being our first concession in Oceania. We plan to introduce leading edge technologies that will consistently deliver high levels of port performance. We are equally pleased to have a partnership with the Port of Melbourne whom, we would like to mention, conducted the entire tender process with efficiency and transparency,” says Christian R. Gonzalez, ICTSI Head of the Asia-Pacific region. VICTL’s development scheme for the Webb Dock Container Terminal utilizes the best-proven technologies and innovations to deliver fully-automated operations from the gate to the quay side. Phase 1 of the terminal, to be ready for operation by 31 December 2016, will have two berths of 660 meters in total fitted with three post-Panamax ship-to-shore cranes, 23.7 hectares of yard and off-dock area with fully automated operations from the gate to the quayside to deliver an estimated capacity of 350,000 TEUs. The Terminal will be able to handle vessels of up to 8,000 TEU capacity. The ECP

will be approximately 10 hectares, and will have a capacity of approximately 200,000 TEUs. Phase 1 construction of the Terminal and the ECP is expected to commence in the fourth quarter of 2014. Phase 2 of the Terminal, to be ready for operation by 31 December 2017, will have five post-Panamax ship-to-shore cranes with a total area of 35.4 hectares. When fully developed and as required by volume growth, the Terminal will have six post-Panamax ship-to-shore cranes, and will be able to handle up to 1.4 million TEUs annually, while the ECP will have a capacity of 280,000 TEUs. Investment for the development of the Webb Dock Container Terminal and ECP is estimated at approximately AUD439 million (USD407 million) for Phase 1 and 2. An additional investment of AUD109 million (USD101 million) is estimated to increase the capacity of the Terminal to 1.4 million TEUs. Apart from its commitment to optimize the Terminal’s capacity, VICTL is likewise committed to support community initiatives throughout the term of its operations at Webb Dock. Moreover, up to 200 jobs will be created once the Terminal will be operating near its capacity. Located in the capital of the State of Victoria, the Port of Melbourne is the largest container and general cargo port in Australia. It has grown with the city of Melbourne, and now has around 3,200 commercial ship calls per year, and handles over 2.5 million TEUs annually.

Port of Melbourne, Australia The Port of Melbourne, Australia’s busiest seaport, is located at the mouth of the Yarra River and Port Melbourne in Melbourne, Victoria. The Port handles more than US$75 billion in trade annually and over 40 percent of Australia’s container trade. The Port consists of Victoria Dock, Appleton Dock, South Wharves, Swanson Dock, Maribyrnong Berth, Yarraville Wharves, Holden Oil Dock, Webb Dock and Station Pier. Melbourne, on the other hand, is a highly diversified economy with focus on finance, manufacturing, research, IT, education, logistics, transportation and tourism. It is headquarters for many of Australia’s largest corporations, including ANZ, National Australia Bank, Telstra and BHP Billiton, the world’s largest mining company. Melbourne is an important financial center and is the second largest industrial center in the country. The State of Victoria is the second largest economy in Australia after New South Wales, accounting for a quarter of the nation’s gross domestic product. Finance, insurance and property services form Victoria’s largest income producing sector, while the community, social and personal services sector is the state’s biggest employer.

ICTSI consolidates port operations in Yantai ICTSI buys 51% of DP World unit to handle foreign cargo

The Ministry of Commerce of Shandong Province, People’s Republic of China, has approved International Container Terminal Services, Inc. (ICTSI) to acquire 51 percent of DP World Yantai Co. Ltd, a company owned by Dubai-based port operator DP World through subsidiary DP World China (Yantai) Ltd. With ICTSI’s purchase, DP World Yantai was renamed Yantai International Container Terminals Ltd. (YICT). The government approval is in line with the consolidation and optimization of overall port operations within the Zhifu Bay port area in Yantai. DP World retained 12.5 percent equity interest in YICT, while the government, through Yantai Port Holdings Co. Ltd. (YPH), holds the remaining balance of 36.5 percent. YICT is the sole foreign container terminal in the port, with ICTSI as the majority shareholder. DP World Yantai was a sino-foreign equity joint venture company between Yantai Port Group Co. Ltd., YPH and DP World China operating a container, bulk and roll-on-roll-off cargo terminal, and managing bonded warehousing and shortdistance transport within the area of the Yantai Port. The new YICT operates Berths 51, 52, 61 and 62 within the Yantai Port with a total land area of 76.7 hectares, a combined length of 1,300 meters, and a controlling depth of up to 16 meters. The government also approved ICTSI to sell its entire 60 percent equity interest in Yantai Rising Dragon International Container Terminals Ltd. (YRDICTL) to YPH. YPH became

the 100 percent owner of YRDICTL, and will dedicate its operations to local container cargo only. The consideration for the acquisition of 51 percent of YICT by ICTSI will be paid in four installments, and will be partially funded from the sale of ICTSI’s 60 percent equity interest in YRDICTL to YPH. YRDICTL was a sino-foreign equity joint venture company between ICTSI and YPH to operate in the Yantai Port. YRDICTL’s terminal covers a total land area of 28.2 hectares. It operates Berths 38 and 39 in Yantai Port with a combined length of 730 meters and controlling depth of 14 meters. Arising from the basic requirements for bonded operations within the Yantai bonded port zone in Shandong, the major container operators within Yantai Port agreed to consolidate container operations in order to achieve synergy in the allocation of resources, improve economies of scale by separating local and foreign container handling operations, and upgrade the professional level of the container operations of the Yantai Port as a whole.

ICTSI subsidiary Yantai International Container Terminals Ltd. now operates Berths 51, 52, 61 and 62 of the Port of Yantai.

BCT launches annual Gdynia water marathon

ICTSI Polish terminal, Baltic Container Terminal (BCT) in the Port of Gdynia, recently launched the BCT Gdynia Marathon 2014, one of the largest and most extreme annual water marathons in Europe. Set on 1–3 August, the open marathon invites the world’s best long distance swimmers to test their skills and abilities in the cold waters of the Baltic Sea. Participants will swim the distance of over 20 kilometers from Hel to Gdynia. The race will be held along a Gdynia beach near Nadmorski Boulevard. This is the third time that BCT is hosting the event. The annual race, which started in the 1970s is regarded as a “great tradition” in the whole of Gdynia. This year’s prize pot amounts to USD 29,000. BCT’s sponsorship of the water marathon is in line with ICTSI’s CSR advocacy on youth and sports.

Trees planted at MICT’s Berth 6 With reports from Joy Lapuz and Francis J Bartolome As part of a continuing initiative to “green” International Container Terminal Services, Inc.’s (ICTSI) flagship operation Manila International Container Terminal (MICT), ICTSI conducted a tree planting activity last 25 March to extend the greening of the MICT to Berth 6, the terminal’s latest facility.

Spearheaded by the ICTSI Foundation, Inc., and in cooperation with residents of Parola, MICT’s immediate community, a total of 90 trees were planted in the perimeter area of Berth 6, and in the road islands of the East Access Road and South Access Road. Talisay, banaba and assorted fruit tree seedlings were planted. Tree planters from ICTSI were Filipina Laurena, Joop Kalambakal, Eloida Arcena, Joy Lapuz, Francis J Bartolome, Marie de Guzman, Ben Gamba, Yehlen de la Luna, Rene Dilao, Lito Velasco, Marivic Lopez and on call staff from the Anchorage Department. On the other hand, Arnel Parce, Chairman of Barangay 20, Tondo, Manila, led residents in assisting ICTSI in planting the trees. This was the third time that ICTSI conducted a tree planting activity: in 2002, coconut seedlings were planted

in the seaside sidewalk of the South Access Road, and in 2009, tuba-tuba, talisay and balete seedlings were planted in portions of the road islands of the East Access Road and South Access Road. As of date, over 150 trees are being maintained at the MICT. The team of Renato Magdaet of Anchorage has been maintaining the trees on a voluntary basis since 2002. The March tree planting activity is one of many joint projects of the Foundation with ICTSI’s host communities in Manila. This was also the first time that the Foundation and Parola got involved in greening initiatives at the MICT. Parola’s participation in the tree planting activity was in line with the Foundation’s project on environment care, specifically the Parola Solid Waste Management Project.

ICTSI employees and Parola residents join forces in greening Berth 6.
