Phase 3 & 4 of the expansion of Pasir Panjang Terminal will increase PSA’s total port capacity by about 50% to 50 million TEUs. It involved the dredging of the caisson sand key & basin area down to targeted depth to facilitate caisson installation and future navigation respectively. The seabed stratum in some area is much too hard to be dredged down by grab dredging and cutter section dredging operation, thus drilling and blasting work need to be carried out at those locations.
