photoblog image Sundown over Pandan

Sundown over Pandan

Since 1993, the Port of Singapore Authority (PSA) has been investing in new container terminals and also the technology that goes in them. Key motivation factors are how to raise port productivity, the ability to manage greater complexity and reduce the turn over time for container ships. In land scarce Singapore, quite a bit of these development is close to residential area and nature reserves. Citizens are vocal about their concerns, ranging from the seafront view from their properties will be affected, to how work commute and school runs may be disrupted. Clear planning and early engagement with stakeholders such as the community, the industry and regulatory government agencies has worked well till now.

 

We are still at Singapore's West Coat Park, but with a view of oil rigs being built at an offshore marine yard in the Pandan area.

What a lovely composition!
Ayush Basu: I had a memorable evening, Ray, and I am pleased I came away with this shot.
Très joli avec les cerfs-volants en contre-jour.
Ayush Basu: The kite was a bonus, Martine.

A very interesting image Ayush, there's so much going on..
Ayush Basu: Years ago, I shared an apartment with a chap who worked (still does) in the oil industry and I heard some interesting stuff from him. This is probably just as close as I will ever be to a jack up oil rig.

I like this very much, Ayush and that kite makes the picture... Great light here too.
Ayush Basu: The kite was a bonus, Astrid. In fact I waited for it to get into the frame to show how residential and industrial spaces in Singapore are pressed close to each other.

A wonderful photo! good shot!
Ayush Basu: Thank you very much, Roland.
I wondered what those tall things are.
Ayush Basu: Those are jack up pillars, Brian - once they are towed out to sea over oil fields, there are buoyant chambers below at sea level, the rest of rig (which is basically a platform containing all equipment) is jacked up and free of the sea water.
I really like this very much Ayush.
Ayush Basu: Thank you, Bill. I have seen quite some things during my time in Singapore but have not shown much on SC in a structured way.
The kite gives this a whole different dimension Ayush.
Ayush Basu: The kite was a bonus, Frank. The spot I was standing at is a park with residential areas close by.
The kites intrigue me especially as you have not mentioned them.
Ayush Basu: You point out correctly, Mary. In fact I waited for the kite to be in the frame because in land scarce Singapore, industrial districts are not that far off from residential areas. I was at that moment in a park.
This is so beautiful! I love the sky!
