The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) has announced that reclamation work for Tuas Terminal Phase 2 began ysterday (4 July), with the installation of the first caisson.

Singapore's next-generation trade hub has commenced at a ceremony attended by Dr. Lam Pin Min, Singapore's Senior Minister of State for Transport and Health.

MPA awarded the Tuas Terminal Phase 2 reclamation project to Penta-Ocean Construction Co. Ltd/Hyundai Engineering & Construction Co. Ltd/Boskalis International BV (PHB) Joint Venture in 2018. This is the largest of the four phases to be reclaimed at 387 hectares. The 8.6 km wharf structure will be constructed with 227 caissons that will be fabricated on site.

All container operations in Singapore will be consolidated at Tuas Terminal by the 2040s. When fully completed, Tuas Terminal will be able to handle up to 65 million TEUs annually.

The Tuas Terminal will also be highly digitalised to optimise processes and enhance information-flow and sharing. As a one-stop portal, MPA's Maritime Single Window (MSW) will transform reporting and port clearance processes for ships calling at Singapore through data exchange amongst relevant stakeholders.

Phase 1 of the MSW will be launched later this year, and will streamline processes of agencies such as MPA, National Environment Agency, and the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority.

Tuas Port will also be the first terminal in Singapore to be physically and digitally integrated with the wider supply chain network.
