Sembcorp Marine on Monday (8 April) won its second Offshore and Marine Engineering Award at the Singapore International Maritime Awards 2019 (IMA 2019), a biennial event organised by the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) to celebrate outstanding achievements and contributions to the local port, shipping and marine industries.
The Group bagged the same award in 2015.
Receiving the IMA 2019 Offshore & Marine Engineering Award at the Shangri-La Hotel this evening, Sembcorp Marine President & CEO Wong Weng Sun said: “We are very grateful to our employees, customers, vendors, R&D collaborators and other partners whose support has enabled us to translate our yard facilities and engineering know-how into unique solutions, project wins and successful deliveries.”
“In accepting our second Offshore & Marine Engineering Award, we are truly honoured to be recognised as a flag-bearer of excellence for Singapore’s O&M sector.
“As an engineering solutions provider to the global offshore, marine and energy industries, Sembcorp Marine must always improve ourselves in order to stay relevant and competitive.
“We aspire to move up the value chain by realising opportunities in new and existing markets, growing our innovation, technology and portfolio of solutions, and optimising Tuas Boulevard Yard to take on more projects.
“Given the prevailing challenges in our business environment, we are managing our capex investments prudently on a balance of cost, benefit and necessity. Sembcorp Marine remains firmly committed to being our customers’ preferred partner for offshore, marine and energy engineering projects, and contributing to the progress of Singapore’s O&M sector.”
Notable projects Sembcorp Marine completed in 2018 include: Floating Storage and Offloading (FSO) vessel Ailsa, which stood out for its 40-year hull lifespan against the 20-year average of most newbuild FSOs; and the high-pressure, high-temperature (HP/HT) fixed platform topsides for the Culzean gas field in the UK North Sea.
The Group is now commissioning the world’s largest semi-submersible crane vessel, Sleipnir, at its Tuas Boulevard Yard. Constructed for Dutch marine contractor Heerema using the yard’s dedicated offshore dry-dock, Sleipnir comes with two 10,000-tonne lifting capacity cranes and will be deployed globally for the setup and decommissioning of offshore oil and gas installations.

Bunker orders of ISO 8217:2010 spec LS 380 cSt 0.5% for Nord Gemini, Nord Titan, Ocean Rosemary, and Luzern were placed through global commodities trading and logistics house Trafigura Pte Ltd.
While Covid-19 concerns are important, Captain Rahul Choudhuri was quick to note this does not mean bunker fuel related issues have indeed disappeared from the shipping sector.
‘Therefore, representing the players of the Malaysian bunker industry, we sincerely hope that this matter can be refined and reconsidered immediately so that all parties benefit together,’ says communication.
