Port operator Hutchison Ports Thailand has welcomed the 14,053 TEU ONE Columba, a new containership owned by Ocean Network Express (ONE), at its Terminal D at Laem Chabang Port.
With a total gross tonnage of 145,647 tons, ONE Columba features a length of 364 meters and a width of 51 meters. The newbuilding was delivered to ONE by Kure Shipyard in Japan earlier this month.
As informed, this is the first time a container vessel of this size has berthed in Thailand.
On this occasion, Hutchison Ports Thailand deployed new remote-controlled quay cranes to handle 2,269 containers loaded to the vessel.
Terminal D is the first terminal in Thailand to handle some of the largest ocean-going container vessels. Once completed, the new Terminal D will have a total quay length of 1,700 meters, with 17 Super Post-Panamax quay cranes and 43 electric rubber-tyred gantry cranes all using remote control technology.
The terminal is expected to facilitate the growth of container volumes at Laem Chabang Port, adding a further 3.5 million TEUs of capacity.
