On behalf of Port Authority of the Cayman Islands (PACI), we wish everyone a pleasant Christmas and prosperous New Year.
January 2nd, 2018 PACI will be turning over a large section of our container yard to McAlpine to begin the required construction for the Rubber Tire Gantry (RTG) operational area. PACI will not have access to this space till May 2018 when the RTGs are commissioned into service. The yard construction project includes:
During this period, PACI will have to modify our operational methods to accommodate storage of empty and full units. The following are the key actions that we will implement:
PACI is excited for the arrival of the 38 containers containing the 2 RTG units. In March 2018, the assembling of the machinery will begin and PACI is sure everyone will be amazed witnessing this historic time of growth for us and the Cayman Islands, alike.
January 2018 will bring on testing of the Yard Management system with a partial “Go-Live” in March 2018 and the full “Go-Live” taking place May 2018 with the commissioning of the RTGs. This system will change PACI operational methods adding the following:
After many years of concept, planning and design PACI is excited about bringing this project to fruition as we enter the building and implementation phase. Your support and patients during this phase is much appreciated as we work to further improve the safety and efficiency of our container yard operations, whilst reaching for our goal of being the “Elite Port of Excellence”.
As the project progresses we vow to keep you informed through PACI social media sites, as well as, our website.
