Portek has reached another milestone in performing crane refurbishment projects as one of the leaders in port equipment engineering works. We have just successfully completed QC7 refurbishment project at ICTSI (International Container Terminal Inc.) in Manila, Philippines.
Despite surging Covid cases in Manila, and some team members had gone down with the infection, our team had managed to brave the difficult situation, delivered the quality work to the satisfaction of the customer, and completed the project on-time. After the successful commissioning and the endurance test, we have conducted a technical training for the relevant personnel at MICT.

Portek holds a concession (jointly with the Tumas Group of Malta) to operate and manage the multi-purpose facilities at Malta’s Grand Harbour, through its subsidiary Valletta Gateway Terminals Ltd. Operations at VGT include RORO, containers, vehicles, conventional cargoes and cruise liners.
Through our investments in the terminals, VGT has constructed a passenger facility dedicated to serve daily sailings to Sicily, playing a key role in connecting Malta to the international market. VGT also invested in modern cargo handling equipment including a Quay Crane, RTGs and Reach-stackers
VGT is always looking for ways to contribute to the fight against climate change. Not only are we switching to sources of renewable energy, investing in photovoltaic panels allows VGT to generate electricity from renewable energy. Malta is blessed with sunny Mediterranean climate which makes photovoltaic panels an ideal candidate to harness the abundant sunlight. VGT operates 2 large cargo shed of around 9,000sqm at Deep Water Quay (DWQ) and although the roof slope and direction is not the perfect angle in terms of sun facing, the PV panels on the roof will still get significant amount of sun. The electricity generated will reduce our gross final energy consumption.
Headquartered in Singapore, Portek has offices in over 8 countries throughout Asia, Europe and Africa, with staff strength of about 1400 employees.
