Singapore’s Shipping Transition
At A GLANCE
Jurong Port terminals and locations
Besides the main terminal ‘Homeport’, JP operates two oil terminals – Jurong Port Universal Terminal (JPUT) and Jurong Port Tank Terminals (JPTT), the Offshore Marine Centre (OMC), a multi-user waterfront facility providing port services to companies engaging in the fabrication of marine and offshore equipment, and two lighter terminals for harbour crafts to deliver spares and provisions to ships calling at Singapore. Regionally, JP has invested in three joint venture terminals: two in China – Rizhao in Shandong province and Yangpu on Hainan Island – and one in Indonesia – Marunda Centre Terminal in Bekasi, West Java.
APAC Outlook: Can you tell us about the world’s first green berths and the importance of sustainability initiatives to JP?
Mr. Ooi Boon Hoe, CEO: “In 2016, JP completed the upgrading of two berths using recycled concrete from existing berths and yards. JP was subsequently awarded the Green Mark (Gold) Award from the Building and Construction Authority.
“The berths may be small compared to the entire port, but in 2016 we sent a clear signal of commitment and dedication towards the sustainability cause because we believe that as Singapore’s primary gateway port, JP is able to communicate and strengthen the green agenda by example. Fast forward to 2021, we continue to forge ahead with our commitment with the three strategic sustainability initiatives of environmental stewardship, sustainability through PCEs, and facilitating the zero-carbon energy transition in the years ahead.”
