Singapore consortium to develop Brunei container port

Singapore consortium to develop Brunei container port

Singapore: A consortium, consisting of Surbana International Consultants and Global Maritime and Port Services, has been awarded a contract to develop Brunei's Pulau Muara Besar into a port-based trading and industrial area. According to the Straits Times, the project calls for the 955-hectare site to be developed into a modern deep-water container terminal, with an export processing zone and manufacturing hub. The first phase, due for completion by end 2012, will see the port have an annual capacity of 800,000 boxes

Global Maritime executive chairman Goon Kok Loon, a former top executive at PSA International, has been quoted by Cargo News Asia as saying that his company's extensive expertise in developing master plans for ports will complement Surbana's experience in township master planning, reclamation and infrastructure development.  [04/11/08]
