A Virtual Voyage with Asian Tigers Singapore
The Future of Singapore’s Mega Port
There was a time when exploring Singapore’s port would have meant hopping onto a bustling bus tour, whisked through the vibrant hum of cranes, containers, and the constant chug of engines. Fast forward to today, and we’ve swapped the bus tour for a virtual voyage. The whole Asian Tigers Singapore team recently experienced this digital transformation in all its glory.
With our gracious hosts at PSA (Port of Singapore Authority), we embarked on a digital expedition into the heart of Singapore’s port operations using state-of-the-art augmented reality (AR) technology. The exciting part? We didn’t even have to step onsite!
This immersive experience provided us with an incredibly detailed perspective of our port operations. The virtual tour used AR to vividly bring to life the complex systems, strategies, and the daily ebb and flow of operations. The interactive digital landscape unfolded before our eyes, enabling us to explore various facets of the port without being physically present. The AR tour successfully demonstrated the potential of digital technologies to enhance our understanding and involvement with the port.
But this is just the beginning. Singapore’s iconic port, a key nodal point in our operations, will soon move entirely to the far west in Tuas. Currently under development, the Tuas Mega Port is projected to be fully operational in the 2040s. Once completed, this mammoth of a port will have a staggering handling capacity of 65 million TEUs (Twenty-foot Equivalent Units) annually. This figure is close to double the volumes being handled today, making it a game-changer in international logistics.
As we virtually strolled through the future Mega Port, we were able to witness its groundbreaking layout and design, innovative technology, and smart systems – all set to propel Singapore into the future of global trade and logistics.
We want to extend our heartfelt thanks to our fantastic hosts at PSA. Their commitment to showcasing the remarkable evolution of Singapore’s port through this virtual tour truly enthralled us.
