Singapore’s Jurong Port said that it will offer a single-stop service for project logistics customers across three waterfront facilities.

Jurong Port will manage the shared facilities of JTC’s new Offshore Marine Centre (OMC) 2, bringing together more than 100 ha of land with water depth ranging from 5-15.7 m deep, and ground-bearing capacity of up to 25 tonnes per sq m. The facilities are targeted at marine and offshore engineering users.

JTC developed OMC1 and OMC2 to provide shared access to ready-built staging areas and berths for activities such as fabrication, assembly, as well as for the maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) of offshore rigs, modules, and equipment. Designed to address the demand for limited waterfront access land for industrial use, Jurong Port said facilities offer plug-and-play infrastructure solutions for varying business needs and heavy operations.

Built with higher floor loading and deeper draught, OMC 2 is receiving interest from industry players ahead of it commencing operations in Q2 2023.

Located in Tuas, Jurong Port will manage both OMC1 and OMC2 as part of its Project Logistics Hub (PLH) expansion to support the development of the offshore renewables sector. Jurong Port has a strong background in supporting heavy industry and project cargo operations, which have included mobilising equipment for offshore wind farms and the transhipment of LNG modules.

“Together with the development of OMC2 and Jurong Port’s single-stop service, which integrates berth planning, cargo handling, and supporting services, our users can look forward to state-of-the-art facilities and save valuable time and effort,” said Terence Seow, ceo of Jurong Port.

Thomas Paterson, country manager at Ben Line Integrated Logistics, who has been working with Jurong Port for offshore wind energy projects, said OMC2 “provides us the perfect base and will enable Ben Line to operate more smoothly and efficiently. Most importantly, we look forward to leverage on JP’s expertise to drive growth and to provide logistics solutions to our clients”.
