       此次扩建项目耗资3.2亿美元,弗吉尼亚国际门户集装箱码头年吞吐量能够增加一倍。
 
       弗吉尼亚港务局(Virginia Port Authority)表示,弗吉尼亚国际门户(Virginia International Gateway,VIG)集装箱码头在朴次茅斯的扩建工程已经完成,耗资3.2亿美元。扩建后,该码头每年集装箱吞吐量能够增加一倍,每年能处理120万集装箱。
 
       弗吉尼亚州州长拉尔夫·若瑟姆(Ralph Northam)称:“VIG扩建完工后,港口能够更安全、更高效、更持续地运送货物,这加强巩固了弗吉尼亚港作为世界级港口的地位。”
 
       项目中包括了一个800英尺泊位扩建工程,可以同时最多为三艘超大型集装箱船( ultra-large container vessels,ULCVs)提供服务。此外,港口增加了26个新轨道式龙门起重机( rail-mounted gantry cranes,RMG)支持13个新集装箱堆场,为集装箱的堆码和分拣创造更多空间。原先15个堆场得到补充,也是由轨道式龙门起重机操作。
 
       今年一月,四架170英尺高的船岸桥式起重机(ship-to-shore cranes,STS)抵达码头,港口方表示,在未来几十年它们将为各种大小的集装箱船提供服务。
 
       此次扩建项目属于一个2017年2月启动的大项目,其耗资为7亿美元,旨在扩建弗吉尼亚港口的两个主要集装箱码头,分别是VIG和诺福克国际码头(Norfolk International Terminals,NIT)。项目预计明年完成,届时港口吞吐量将增加40%。
 
       VIG是由马士基(Maersk)子公司马士基集装箱码头公司(APM Terminals,APMT)负责建造的,并于2007年投入使用,于2010年租给了弗吉尼亚港务局。2014年,APMT将其售给现任所有者,即投资公司Alinda Capital Partners管理的投资基金和英国私营基金组织高校养老金计划(Universities Superannuation Scheme Ltd.)。

Port of Virginia finishes terminal expansion
 
The $320 million project will double the annual throughput of the Virginia International Gateway container terminal.
 
The Virginia Port Authority said it has completed a $320 million expansion of the Virginia International Gateway (VIG) container terminal in Portsmouth. The expansion has doubled the annual throughput capacity of the terminal to 1.2 million container lifts per year.
 
“The completion of the VIG expansion enables the port to move cargo more safely, efficiently and sustainably than ever before and cements Virginia’s position as home to a world-class port,” said Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam.
 
Work at the terminal included an 800-foot extension of its berth so that it can service as many as three ultra-large container vessels (ULCVs) simultaneously. In addition, 26 new rail-mounted gantry cranes have been added to support 13 new container stacks, creating more room to stack and sort containers. The new stacks complement 15 existing stacks, also served by RMGs.
 
In January, four new 170-foot-tall ship-to-shore cranes arrived at the terminal and the port said they will be able to service container vessels, regardless of their size, for decades to come.
 
The project is part of a $700 million project begun in February 2017 to expand the port’s two primary container terminals, VIG and Norfolk International Terminals. When completed next year, the port’s throughput capacity will be increased by 40%.
 
VIG was built by the Maersk subsidiary APM Terminals and opened in 2007 and leased to the Virginia Ports Authority in 2010. The terminal was sold by APMT in 2014 to its current owners, investment funds managed by Alinda Capital Partners and Universities Superannuation Scheme Ltd., a U.K. private-sector pension fund.
