Asian Terminals - Manila Berth Seismic Upgrade
- Owner: Asian Terminals Incorporated (P&O Ports)
- Project: Seismic upgrade of berths
- Location: Manila, Philippines
- Scope: Examination of options for increasing seismic resistance of existing wharves
Soros undertook an investigation into the means of achieving an increase in throughput from 18,000 TPD to 25,000 TPD and to load larger vessels than the existing Panamax bulk carriers. Alternative concepts for the upgrade of the terminal were prepared and compared. The 30 years old shiploader was examined and upgrade measures and repair works were identified. The outreach and throw of the machine were investigated to allow larger vessels to be loaded and the latter improvement has been undertaken. Individual measures to upgrade the electrical and control systems of the terminal, conveyors, train unloading and reclaim system were identified and implemented.
