PROJECT- PSA Tuas Port Maintenance Base

The upcoming Tuas Port will be developed in four phases and terminal operations for the first phase is expected to start in 2021. As part of PSA Singapore’s sustainability plan to reduce carbon emissions, PSA is looking to develop green terminal buildings in the port.

Tuas Port Maintenance Base will consist of 8 buildings that serve various aspects of maintaining the port facilities. One of them being the 6-storey Administrative Building (under the Green Building Innovation Cluster Demo); this will be the first major building and the first Super Low Energy Building (SLEB) to be completed in Tuas Port. The building will house an operations centre which will manage all terminal operations for Phase 1 of Tuas Port, as well as a canteen, an engineering office and briefing rooms; expected to be ready in the fourth quarter of 2020.

Tuas Port Maintenance Base has hence adopted an Integrated Digital Delivery (IDD) approach in line with this effort that embarks on advanced info-communication technologies and smart technologies, integrating processes and stakeholders throughout all phases of port operations with a single source of truth.
