Singapore is a regional hub for offshore and marine companies which require state-of-the-art marine facilities. To further strengthen their offshore and marine-leading position, JTC Corporation intends to construct the Offshore Marine Centre 2 along Singapore’s Tuas Western Coast. Aurecon has been appointed to conduct the feasibility study and conceptual layout design for the shared facility that will support offshore module and equipment fabrication, as well as associated activities. These include:
- construction and assembly of topside modules and offshore structures
- manufacture of oilfield equipment such as wellheads, manifolds and pipelines
- fabrication of mooring equipment like anchors and winches
- rig conversion, modification or maintenance, repair and overhaul activities
- fabrication of offshore renewable energy structures
- offshore project logistics
Offshore Marine Centre 2 will complement the existing Offshore Marine Centre with higher specifications, including heavier floor loading and a deeper draft, to support the fabrication and assembly of larger offshore modules and equipment.
Aurecon has applied its engineering skills to Offshore Marine Centre 2 so that it can accommodate larger vessels and integration-type activities for more complex and heavier topside process modules The challenge in the conceptual layout design stage was balancing the industry demand with the engineering design and financial investment. It’s important that Offshore Marine Centre 2 is a competitive, relevant and accessible facility so its clients can access the waterfront infrastructure well into the future.
The waterfront infrastructure will be a heavy-duty platform to accommodate the vessels of offshore and marine companies in a safe, efficient and cost-effective manner. With a site size of approximately 7.5 hectares, Aurecon explored, planned and developed conceptual layouts to maximise the placement of facilities within the project site.
