    6. 6. 2. Status Quo – Port Characteristics Cape Town Container Terminal
    7. 7. • Infrastructure Characteristics • Basin at depth -14m CD Port • Quay length: 1372m (5 berths at various depths) • Type of quay construction: Block Wall • Original design vessel: 2500 TEU vessel, Draft = 11.7m, length = 270m, beam = 31.8m • Terminal Characteristics • Straddle carrier operation • Stack area: • concrete paving with approx. 11,000 ground slots (function of stack height), • reefer points of 1,600 • Ship to Shore Cranes: • Number = 6 and relatively old • Constraint = reach, height, lifting capacity, availability of spares & end of economic lifespan • Yard equipment • Straddle Carriers & Haulers/Trailers • Above average age • Limited stack height Cape Town Container Terminal Existing Characteristics

    11. 11. 4. Options Considered & Approved Scheme Cape Town Container Terminal
    12. 12. Fundamental capacity constraints: • Stack area – insufficient stacking space • STS Cranes – needs replacement • Yard equipment – cannot cope with current & projected volumes Cape Town Container Terminal Expansion Options Considered Options for capacity growth: A. Reclamation option within port (Quay 501/502) B. Stack capacity in Port Industrial Park Site C. Reclamation option within port (Duncan Dock) D. Seaward reclamation
    13. 13. • 300m seaward reclamation for additional stacks • STS crane replacement (6 off) • Yard equipment replacement (straddle carriers + haulers/trailers) • Reshuffling of stacks & increase in reefer points Extensive delays in completing EIA and obtaining successful RoD. Needed to expedite an alternate solution in order to bring additional capacity on line to suit immediate demand. Cape Town Container Terminal Preferred Option: Reclamation
    14. 14. Reconfiguration Basin Deepening Container Handling Equipment Quay Refurbishment Cape Town Container Terminal Alternative Option: Reconfiguration
    15. 15. • CTCT development structured in 3 phase approach • Phase 1 & 2 capex approved (R4.2b) • Phase 3 future concept Cape Town Container Terminal Approved Expansion Scheme
    16. 16. • Berth Capacity • Quay refurbishment (deck on piles) • Increase berth depths to 15.5m below Chart Datum • Design vessel: TEU = 6000, LOA =350m, Beam = 45m, Draft = 14.0m • STS Crane Capacity • Replace existing cranes (6) with Super Post Panamax size • Increase cranes (+2) to match increased stack capacity • Yard Equipment Capacity • Convert from Straddles to RTGs • To allow future capacity increases to match berths • Stack Capacity • Demolition of non-essential infrastructure • Increase stacking foot print with more dense stacking • Efficiency Improvements • Truck Staging Area • PIP Site Bridge • Comms & Instrumentation (including Gate Automation & CCTV) • Standardisation of Operational System (NAVIS) • Entrance / exit modifications Cape Town Container Terminal Approved Expansion Scheme
