On 30 November 2015, YICT took delivery of four new quay cranes and two new rubber-tyred gantry cranes (RTGCs). The quay cranes have a lift height of 52 metres and an outreach of 70 metres, suitable for the largest vessels in the world. The new 1-over-6 RTGCs will increase YICT’s yard stacking capacity and container handling efficiency. Following on-site testing, the new machinery will be put into operation in 2016 to harness the port's ability to handle mega-vessels.
