Cayman Port Aims for Vertical Growth

23 September, 2017

The Port Authority of the Cayman Islands celebrated its 40th Anniversary in July and reports that in this time they have only expanded their footprint by 5%. With finite space for expansion, the vision of Cayman Port is to go vertical, thus the aim to triple its storage capacity. Clement Reid, Port Director, told Cayman 27 “It will allow us to go from storing 900 TEU’s, which is the equivalent of a 20-foot container box, to 3000 TEU’s just by changing our equipment.” The first two (of six) rubber-tired gantry cranes standing nine stories tall are slated to arrive next February, giving the port the muscle to stack containers higher and wider, said Mr. Reid.

Other discussions surrounded foresight on legislation and transshipment – the full story can be viewed at Cayman 27.
