Works at Tuas View to Begin Soon (Singapore)

Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore informs the shipping, harbour craft and pleasure craft communities in Singapore’s waters that soil investigation works off Tuas View start next week.

Soil investigation works will be carried out by means of borehole drilling using jack-up barges. Two jack-up barges will be working on two boreholes at any one time.

The jack-up barge, with tug boats in attendance, will have a circular safety working zone of 30 meters radius centered at the barge. Tugboats will be used for shifting the barges from one borehole location to another.

The shifting of the barges will be carried out during daylight hours only. Safety boats will be deployed in the vicinity of the working area to warn other craft of the project work.
