SINGAPORE – A new 9,000 sq m integrated hub with berths from which the public can view tests and showcases of greener ships will be ready by the end of 2025 on the Southern Waterfront.
Called The Waves, the future waterfront landmark will also be a centre for marine technology companies and have a sky terrace as well as food and beverage (F&B) options for visitors, the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) said on Friday (April 8).
On Friday, MPA also launched its new patrol craft, MPA Guardian, a hybrid diesel-electric vessel that can conduct search and rescue, oil spill response and other salvage operations.
At 34m, it is significantly bigger than MPA’s existing fleet of six 17m patrol craft, and has a top speed of 30 knots. It is manned by four to eight crew members and can fit 24 passengers comfortably.
MPA had been developing the craft with the Defence Science and Technology Agency and Penguin Shipyard International since 2020.
