Senior Minister of State for Finance and Transport, Mr Chee Hong Tat, who was the Guest-of-Honour at the event, said: “We are fully committed to strengthening Singapore’s position as a Global Hub Port and International Maritime Centre for all players in the ecosystem to thrive and succeed.”

“We are appreciative of the opportunity to partner ONE throughout their journey – from when they started operations in Singapore, until today, as ONE expands their footprints here in decarbonisation, manpower development and maritime innovation and digitalisation. We look forward to continuing this close partnership with ONE and industry partners, as we scale greater heights together.”

Kicking off the opening ceremony, ONE’s CEO Jeremy Nixon said: “ONE, and your representative companies, and the Singapore Government are all playing their part in this important joint endeavour and commitment to long term sustainability.”

“This year ONE published its new “Green Strategy” and formed a new dedicated “Green” department which will now be based in this new office.

“The new satellite office will host a number of GHQ and RHQ functions. Specifically, ONE’s Green Strategy, Technical, and Ship Management departments.

“As well as our South Asia RHQ team, overseeing 27 countries regionally, under the leadership of Colin De Souza.

“Staff in both offices will now have the ability to interchange their work locations, as an additional hybrid ‘work from home or off-site’ option.”

Also in attendance were Chief Executive of the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore, Ms Quah Ley Hoon and ONE’s Managing Director Mr Yasuki Iwai.

A kagami biraki ceremony was then performed at the ceremony. The kagami biraki is a Japanese tradition in which the top of a sake barrel is broken to signify harmony and prosperity.
