New Marina South Wharves lighter terminal opened in the Port of Singapore.

Developed by Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) at a cost of $16 million, MSW will complement the existing lighter terminal at Penjuru. MSW will be particularly useful for lighter operators serving ships in the Eastern anchorages, given the shorter travelling distances and thus lower operating costs.

MSW is purpose-built with crane lifting, cargo handling, mooring and berth facilities to meet the needs of ship suppliers and lighter operators. The development comprises a 100-metres wharf structure and a single storey administration building.

Jurong Port Pte Ltd has implemented a new Lighter Wharf Management System (LWMS) at MSW to streamline transactions. The system reduces paper consumption and eliminates manual processes. MSW is also equipped with wireless internet coverage to enable mobile transactionsvia the LWMS.

The new Marina South Wharves (MSW) was officially opened in a ceremony attended by officials from the Ministry of Transport, Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA), and management and staff of Jurong Port Pte Ltd. The ceremony was officiated by Mr Pang Kin Keong, Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Transport.
