Swedish Kockums AB, ST Marine Form Joint Venture Company

Singapore Technologies Engineering Ltd (ST Engineering) today announced that its marine arm, Singapore Technologies Marine Ltd (ST Marine), has partnered with Swedish Kockums AB (Kockums) to form a joint venture company (JVC) called Fortis Marine Solutions Pte. Ltd. (Fortis Marine Solutions).

ST Marine will hold 51% stake in Fortis Marine Solutions and Kockums the remaining 49% stake. ST Marine and Kockums will inject $510,000 and $490,000 respectively as equity into the new JVC. Consequent to its incorporation, Fortis Marine Solutions is now a subsidiary of ST Marine.

ST Marine and Kockums have a long standing partnership managing several contracts for the Republic of Singapore Navy’s (RSN) submarines. The RSN’s Challenger and Archer classes of submarines were designed, constructed, tropicalised and delivered by Kockums; while ST Marine has been providing up to Depot level maintenance of the submarines. The JVC is formed with the primary objective of providing a higher level in-country capability in the refitting and life cycle support services for the submarine fleet of RSN.

“Kockums is proud to have been supplying the RSN with advanced naval solutions, since 1995. Fortis Marine Solutions is an important widening of our activities in Singapore and a strong sign of our long-term commitment to provide the RSN with the best support throughout the life time of our products. We look forward to establish this in-country capability together with our qualified partner ST Marine.” ~ Ola ALFREDSSON, Chief Executive Officer, Kockums AB

“We are confident that the design and systems engineering capability of Kockums, combined with ST Marine’s skilled workforce capability will result in maintenance regimes that ensure high availability, safety and readiness for RSN.” ~ NG Sing Chan, President, ST Marine

Port Finance International Mexico 2015

Given the successful gathering last June of our 1st Port Finance International Mexico & LATAM, PFI will be holding the 2nd Mexican & LATAM PFI Forum.

This conference is a meeting point to understand Mexicans ports current and future opportunities and find solutions to challenges.

Mexico’s port development and operations is currently thriving, with great opportunities of product and service provider companies to access high value opportunities.

Mexico’s Infrastructure investment has grown from 3% of GDP in 2000 to nearly 5% in 2012.

A National Program has been launched, devoting nearly £65 billion to help modernize and develop four leading ports, construct ten specialized terminals and grow Mexico’s cargo handling capacity by 60%.

There has been a £2.9 billion investment into expanding the port of Veracruz which will increase the port’s terminals from 18 to 28 and enhance its cargo capacity to 116 million tons.
