SINGAPORE: Held at Pasir Panjang Terminal Building 3 from 10-14 January 2018, the PSA ‘Intelligent Port of the Future’ Exhibition will showcase PSA’s future port vision, as well as the transformation of jobs through technology and innovation. Touching on elements of PSA’s heritage and progress, the exhibition will feature technologies never before seen at container terminals in Singapore, including amphibious drones, automated quay cranes, exoskeletons for port staff, and robotic arms for related container activities. Divided into three zones, the exhibition begins with a look back at PSA’s early years in adopting technology, and takes visitors through its present-day innovation drive to show the progress being made in the use of automation, data analytics, robotics and other technologies to be implemented in our future port facilities (see Annex A for more information). A showcase of new and updated details of the future Tuas Port will also be available.

Mr Ong Kim Pong, Regional CEO Southeast Asia, PSA International, said, “The Intelligent Port of the Future exhibition presents an opportunity to showcase PSA’s commitment to advanced technologies and innovation for port operations at both our current terminals and the future Tuas Port. We also look forward to the opportunities to upskill our people to handle the new systems coming on stream. These are key in ensuring that we continue to serve our customers well into the future as industry consolidation grows.” The week will also play host to other events, including the Launch of the Chartered Engineer Certification Programme for the Port & Marine Sector.
