The third terminal, with a 1.5km wharf, is expected to cater to an annual capacity of three million twenty-foot equivalent units (TEUs) of containers.
The development cost is expected to be around RM1.5 billion.
The terminal will be designed to cater to ultra-size modern container
ships such as the Triple-E, which is the world's largest and most
efficient container vessel with a capacity of 18,000 TEUs.
