The Jurong Port Pte Ltd and Oiltanking JV, which started in December 2015, has carried out the official launch of the partnership by celebrating the Jurong Port Tank Terminals (JPTT).
The terminal, which will be housed on 16 hectares of land at the port is being designed to store and handle both clean petroleum products and petrochemicals. It will have a capacity of around 470,000m³. It will be supported by four jetties capable of handling vessels up to 180,000 dwt and will be connected with Jurong Island via pipelines. It is expected that the terminal will be operational by 2019.
Jurong Port CEO and JPTT chairman, Ooi Boon Hoe said:
“Our vision of creating a next generation multipurpose port ensuring the efficient and safe handling of goods especially non-containerised cargo for at least the next 50 years.”
Rotary Engineering won the EPC for the project in April this year. At the time Chairman and Managing Director, Roger Chia said: “The demand for liquid bulk storage remains resilient, and Rotary as an established brand-name in this field is well-positioned to capitalise on opportunities that arise. We are glad to be selected for this project, which will enhance the attractiveness of Singapore’s Jurong Island petrochemical hub.”
