SMW 2021: 10 companies celebrated for contributions to Singapore’s maritime industry

20 Apr 2021

The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) on Monday (19 April) recognised 10 companies and an individual for their significant contributions to Maritime Singapore at this afternoon’s Singapore International Maritime Awards (IMA) 2021.

Chee Hong Tat, Senior Minister of State for Foreign Affairs and Transport, presented the awards in a hybrid event held both virtually and at Marina Bay Sands in conjunction with the 15th Singapore Maritime Week.

MPA said it received more than 200 nominations for the 11th edition of the biennial awards. This year’s award recipients included bunker suppliers, ship owners, maritime service providers and R&D technology firms. The judging panel also considered the resilience of nominees in adapting and contributing to manage the COVID-19 pandemic.

“The COVID-19 pandemic this past year has exposed the vulnerabilities of the global supply chain. It is critical for companies to remain agile to navigate through these uncertain times,” said Quah Ley Hoon, Chief Executive of MPA.

“Despite the challenges, many companies and individuals have adapted and thrived amidst the crisis. This year’s awards recognised several companies and individuals who have played an integral role in Singapore’s continued success as a leading maritime hub.”
