30 August 2019, Friday: Ferry Rescue Exercise & Observer Programme: 8.30am – 1.00pm
Singapore Cruise Centre HarbourFront | The Ferry Rescue Exercise (FEREX) aims to test the readiness and deployment resources of multi-agency parties to the Ferry Mishap Contingency Plan in the event of a ferry mishap. FEREX also familiarises participants on the shipboard evacuation procedures and shore-based passenger safety management plans.
30 August 2019, Friday: Professional Visits: 2.00pm – 5.00pm
Alpha Ori | Col houses NOC (Network Operating Centre). The NOC has several screens displaying various machinery/Ship/Fleet dashboards. This NOC will be developed in the future into FCCC (Fleet Command & Control Centre) the concept of remote monitoring and Control of all Digitalised ships utilising DSS (Decision Support System) such as predictive maintenance of machineries, sea lane traffic congestion predictive modelling and guidance etc. Once FCCC concept becomes operational, the centre is intended to be manned 24x7 with subject matter experts operating in shifts. The personnel manning FCCC is expected to remotely control. The NOC also houses R&D lab where test ship environment is set up. Test ship data can be simulated and visualised in the FCCC screens for further study and development of useful applications.
Centre of Excellence for Maritime Safety | As part of SMI’s continuous effort to support Maritime Singapore as a global maritime knowledge hub through research and technology and to build up a sustainable pool of specialist research manpower, the SMI, with the support of the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA), has established three CoEs with the Institutes of Higher Learning (IHLS) in the Modelling and Stimulation area for the next Generation Ports Maritime Energy and Sustainable Development, and Maritime Safety. The establishment of the CoEs is an alignment with MPA’s Strategy to deepen maritime R&D capabilities which is one of the strategies under the Innovation Thrust of the Sea Transport Industry Transfomation.
Port Operations Control Centre (POCC Vista) | MPA is responsible for the safe navigation of ships within Singapore's port waters and the Singapore Strait. It closely monitors vessel movements in these waters through two Port Operations Control Centres (POCCs). The two POCCs are located at Changi Naval Base (POCC-Changi) and PSA Vista (POCC Vista). Both centres employ the state-of-the-art Vessel Traffic Information System (VTIS) and serve as full back-up for each other. | The VTIS is a multi-radar tracking system that the MPA uses to track and monitor shipping traffic in the Singapore Strait and port waters. The system, which can monitor up to 10,000 vessels in real-time, is able to integrate data from various sources, including radars, Automatic Identification System, Harbour Craft Transponder System, Closed Circuit Television System and ship databases to present a comprehensive sea situation for our operators. Each POCC has 14 VTIS work stations to monitor different sectors of our port waters and the Singapore Strait.”
