Message from Organizing Committee Chairman

Tan Kim Pong
Chairman, Organizing Committee of “OSV Singapore 2013”

The Organizing Committee extends a very warm welcome to all delegates of OSV Singapore 2013, the 5th international conference on technology and operation of offshore support vessels, jointly Organized with The Joint Branch of the RINA and the IMarEST (Singapore), Newcastle University (Singapore) and Singapore Maritime Academy, Singapore Polytechnic. This conference marks the 10th year since the first Conference was held.

As always we record our thanks and appreciation to the speakers and authors for their hard work in writing the papers for the Conference. This willingness of the authors to share the knowledge with the marine and offshore support vessel community for the common good is indeed very laudable.

We also wish to thank all the sponsors for giving financial support to this conference, in particular our solitaire sponsor Keppel Singmarine, platinum sponsor Wartsila and gold sponsor ABB.

We thank the delegates for their attendance, support and for asking all the interesting questions which make the exchange of ideas possible.

We also record our thanks to our supporting Organization Institution of Engineers Singapore (IES) and media partner Petromin.

Finally we record our thanks to Members of the Organizing Committee who had spent many hours of their personal time to ensure that the OSV Singapore 2013 is as successful as the past conferences.

Thank you.
