According to Alphaliner, Contecon Manzanillo (CMSA), a subsidiary of Philippine-based port group ICTSI, recently began work on a third phase expansion project to increase the terminal’s design handling capacity from around 1.50 Mteu today. to more than 2.00 Mteu in the next five years.

The company said that it would invest more than USD 230M in the project through 2025, adding that the funds would be used mainly to improve the terminal infrastructure, storage yards and equipment.

According to ICTSI, the modernized and expanded facility will be “designed to meet present and future needs, as well as to handle 400-meter ships.”

Manzanillo’s CMSA, also known as TEC-2, is one of two large container terminals in the port in addition to SSA’s Terminal de Contenedores de Manzanillo (also known as TEC-1), which is slightly larger.

In addition to these, there are smaller multi-purpose and container docks in the port, such as the Terminal Internacional de Manzanillo (TIMSA), owned by Hutchison, and the terminal managed by Grupo OCUPA.

Contecon Manzanillo currently has a berthing length of 950 m and eight Ship-to-Shore container cranes. Completely built, the terminal will have a 1,080 m quay with twelve cranes. Another 14 ha of space will also be added to CMSA’s container yard and the terminal will eventually cover a footprint of 72 ha.

Major users of CMSA include COSCO, MSC, and CMA CGM. The largest ships handled by the terminal on a regular basis are MSC’s 15,000 teu neo-Panamax units trading in the Far East – WCSA carrier’s ‘Andes’ loop, where ONE (‘ALX2’) also contributes three ships a little More smalls.
