AI, Robotics, Cloud Computing, 3D-Sanning & IIoT are reshaping Refining, Petrochemicals and Chemicals

SINGAPORE - (ACN Newswire) - Asian Downstream Summit will be held on 31st October - 1st November 2018, focusing on core refining technologies, with a special focus on Industry 4.0. As the anchor oil and gas event during Singapore International Energy Week, hosted by the Energy Market Authority, the event will gather 1,000+ industry professionals and leaders under one roof to offer insights on the latest innovations in the industry.

Technology is disrupting the downstream oil & gas industry and redefining the way businesses operate. With the advent of Industry 4.0: Artificial Intelligence, Robotics, Cloud Computing, 3D-Sanning & IIoT -- the oil & gas industry is getting set for an immense change from how we have historically known it.

Companies that are willing to innovate and invest can unlock tremendous value and remain financially strong regardless of what happens to global supply and demand trends.

Asian Downstream Summit remains THE must-attend show for refiners, petrochemical operators and specialty chemicals players to converge and discuss how these technologies are revolutionizing their operations, maximizing their efficiency and improving their margins.

"Our recent research indicates that Asia's downstream oil and gas sector wants to eliminate as many manual systems as possible with the ultimate aim of going fully digital in functional areas such as operations, maintenance, reliability and safety," says Tanushree Mulraj, Show Director for Asian Downstream Summit.

She continues, "Asian Downstream Summit continues to be the main industry event for the industry and players looking to stay updated with the latest technologies and trends. With a wider focus on the petrochemical industry, including specialty chemicals, and a new focused stream on Core Refining & Petrochemical Technologies, the Asian Downstream Summit 2018 will showcase case studies, panel discussions, technical presentations & workshops led by leading industry experts on the two-day, three track conference programme. This is one of the main reasons that industry leaders from around the world continue to attend our show year on year."

The event will revolve around three strategy-focused themes:

- Track 1 : Digital Innovations, Manufacturing and Automation
- Track 2 : Refining & Petrochemical Technologies / Downstream Digital Roadmap & Disruptive Technologies
- Track 3 : Process Optimisation, Asset Management & Energy Efficiency

"We have specially crafted our agenda to incorporate a specific focus on digital, process and catalyst technologies, becoming the ONLY regional event to delve deeply into exploring how these technologies can transform your operations," says Tanushree Mulraj.

"Digitalisation is a key priority for operators as it offers a range of benefits from cost savings, environmental benefits and operational improvements that will reach into every corner of the business. The opportunities will come with risks (cybersecurity, for example) that must be understood and navigated and Asian Downstream Summit will provide you with a platform to share knowledge and build learning around this."

New features at Asian Downstream Summit 2018 include:

1. Digital Transformation Awards: Recognizing top enterprising refiners and innovative solution providers across the downstream oil & gas sector for their outstanding commitment to the digital initiative.

To drive this analysis KBC will leverage our Digital Readiness Assessment process; and Operational Efficiency global database.

SGX-Listed Hatten Land Unveils Plans for RM200M (US$49.2M) Water Theme Park in Collaboration with Samsung C&T and Polin Waterparks
JCN Newswire
Aug 07, 2018

MELAKA - (ACN Newswire) - Hatten Land Limited ("Hatten Land"), together with leading resort operator Samsung C&T Corporation and the world's leading designer and installer of water slides, Polin Waterparks, unveiled today plans to build a RM200 million water theme park, the largest in Melaka. The world's first 'sky' theme park is intended to be catalyst for the Malaysian historical city's tourism industry.

YAB Tuan Adly Bin Zahari, the Honourable Chief Minister of Melaka, witnessed the signing ceremony among the three parties to build Splash World @ Harbour City, a 500,000-sq ft water park to be located 14 floors above the ground in the centre of the designated UNESCO World Heritage city, which hosts nearly 17 million visitors a year.

Due for completion by end-2019 and expected to be opened to the public in the first half of 2020, Splash World @ Harbour City will be one of the region's largest water parks with up to 5,200 visitors a day.

Splash World @ Harbour City hopes to attract 850,000 to 1.0 million visitors annually after the first year of operation. The presence of the water theme park may also extend the average length of visitors' stays and increase their average spending per day, which bodes well for the tourism sector. It has an estimated development cost of RM200 million (USD49.2 million).

Hatten Land, listed on the Singapore Exchange and part of the conglomerate Hatten Group, will develop the project. Samsung C&T Corporation of South Korea will be operation advisor and consultant, while Polin Waterparks, headquartered in Turkey, will design and manufacture the water slide attractions.

Nestled between two 30-storey towers on the 14th floor deck of Harbour City @ Melaka, a mixed development shaped like a large ship, the four-storey Splash World @ Harbour City is the first 'in the sky' theme park that will offer an indoor and outdoor waterpark experience with more than one kilometer of water slides.

A man-made river will meander over two floors to intertwine more than 50 attractions, including 11 extreme slides for thrill-seekers, a Sky Beach, and a dedicated children's water play park. After dark, the Cosmic Waters light show will illuminate the park, accompanied by a water circus, trapeze stunts and other entertainment in a special amphitheatre.

The scale and concept of the project will reshape tourism in Melaka. Founded in along the Straits of Melaka in the 14th century, the port and spice hub witnessed waves of Portuguese, Dutch and British colonial rule for nearly five centuries before independence of then-Malaya in 1957, six years before the formation of Malaysia. It was visited at least five times in the 15th century by the famous Ming Dynasty Admiral Zhenghe (Cheng Ho) during his legendary seven voyages to the western ocean. Today, it is Malaysia's second-most visited city after the capital Kuala Lumpur.

"Melaka is rich in historical significance not just for Malaysia but the whole of Southeast Asia. Splash World @ Harbour City will bring a transformational new dimension to our travel and leisure landscape and make Melaka an even more compelling international attraction," said Melaka Chief Minister YAB Tuan Adly Bin Zahari.

"The impact of this project will resonate beyond tourism to the broader economy, creating new jobs and opportunities for international economic partnerships and even direct investments," he added.

"Splash World @ Harbour City is a hugely important project which underscores Hatten Land's commitment to the long-term development of Melaka. We are partnering world-renowned leaders in their respective fields - Samsung C&T Corporation and Polin Waterparks - to place Melaka on the world map as a must-visit destination. We are grateful to the Government of Melaka and the Malaysian authorities for their support of this project," said Dato' Colin Tan, Executive Chairman and Managing Director of Hatten Land.

Samsung C&T's resort group is the owner and operator of South Korea's popular Everland Resort, which hosts 8 million visitors per year. Everland Resort consists of the Everland theme park, which integrates attractions, shows, zoos, and gardens, as well as the Caribbean Bay waterpark, which features world-class facilities and services. It is a leading global operator and service provider for resorts, as well as golf courses, food supply and landscaping.

"Riding on our success with the Everland and Caribbean Bay resorts, we are pleased to offer our services and operational expertise in this new venture with Hatten's Splash World @ Harbour City. This is our first foray into Malaysia and we are optimistic about future growth in Melaka's tourism industry," said Mr. Tommy Byungsuk Jeong, General Manager of Everland Resort and Executive Vice President of Samsung C&T.

Polin Waterparks is a multi-award-winning global leader in the design, production, engineering and installation of waterparks and water slides that incorporate efficient smart design features. With a track record of 3,000 waterpark projects in 105 countries, it is the largest water slide supplier to waterparks in Eurasia.

"Splash World @ Harbour City is an exciting new destination for Malaysia and one of the region's few major waterparks. Polin Waterparks is honoured to be appointed to design and install Hatten's choice of hybrid ride designs to create a one-of-a-kind experience for Splash World's guests," said Emre Buyukgungor, Regional Sales Director of Polin Waterparks.

Harbour City, which has a total estimated gross development value of RM2.2 billion (USD541 million), spans 4.5 million square feet in built-up area. It is a themed mixed development that incorporates retail, hospitality and entertainment elements, and is located on Pulau Melaka.

Consoveyo Completes Conveyor System Installation for JTC Food Hub @ Senoko
Jul 31, 2018

Singapore, 31 July 2018 --( ASIA TODAY )-- Consoveyo Singapore Pte. Ltd. (Consoveyo), part of Körber Logistics Systems, announces the successful implementation of a new turnkey interfloor conveyor system at JTC Food Hub @ Senoko, for JTC Corporation (JTC) in Singapore.

“This project is a testament to the quality of Consoveyo’s automated logistics solutions, and it reaffirms our position as one of Southeast Asia’s leading suppliers of automated intralogistics solutions,” shared Poul Lorentzen, General Manager of Consoveyo. “Our partnership with JTC demonstrates our ability to work well with statutory boards, and will hopefully serve as a springboard for Consoveyo to establish a stronger industry presence across the region.”

The JTC Food Hub @ Senoko is a new seven-storey facility for the food manufacturing industry, developed by JTC in close collaboration with the Singapore Food Manufacturers’ Association (SFMA), and Singapore Manufacturing Federation (SMF). It is Singapore’s first multi-tenanted ramp-up development with an integrated cold room and warehouse facility (CWF) that aims to help food manufacturers boost productivity and enhance their competitiveness.

The Food Hub also offers its tenants a range of material handling equipment to vertically transport goods. The equipment include cargo lifts and a pallet conveyor system linked to pallet lifts for automatic transfers of raw or ready-to-eat products between floors to improve operational efficiency.

With over 20 years of experience in Singapore, Consoveyo has established itself as a global leader for automated material handling and storage systems. Within the Food Hub, Consoveyo supplied and installed a comprehensive Conveying System with 10 automated pallet lifters, each 42m in height. The entire Conveying System will support transportation of palletised goods between the tenants’ factory units and the shared CWF on the first floor.

This Conveying System also features human-to-conveyor interface via manual pallet jacks on tenant levels, forklifts, and potentially AGVs on ground levels. The interfloor System also takes into consideration building elements such as fire alarms to trigger fire protection features like fire shutter doors and high speed doors that provide insulation, and minimise energy loss due to leakage of cold air during material flow transfers.

Lorentzen concluded, “As Consoveyo continues to expand its presence in Asia, we are confident that our robust automated intralogistics solutions and long-term focused customer service will continue to benefit customers across various industries. With a strong, professional team providing local support in Southeast Asia, we are excited about future growth opportunities here.”

Mobile App WhereIsWhere Launches in Singapore
JCN Newswire
Jul 30, 2018

SINGAPORE - (ACN Newswire) - Singapore's WhereIsWhere, a first-of-its-kind location-based discovery mobile app, is now available for consumers to download for free. Through the initial launch of WhereIsWhere's mobile app, consumers can now discover flash promotions, product and service offerings and activities within a kilometre from where they search, as well as timing-based offers around when they search.

At the initial app launch, WhereIsWhere is already working with over 1,500 retail locations on its app, island-wide - ranging from food and beverage chains including Old Chang Kee, Kopitiam, and Sushi Express and service providers such as Jean Yip to major shopping malls such as Millenia Walk. A number of additional retailers, malls and locations will be added to WhereIsWhere's app by September 2018.

"With Singapore's consumers spending hours each day on their smartphones, we are catering to their mobile-first needs. These consumers are inundated with content and information - we make their decisions simpler, easier, while bringing an element of discovery and excitement. WhereisWhere brings great places, experiences, promotions and storefronts within your vicinity, or at any point on the map, helping you to decide what to eat, shop and do," said Michael Leong, Industry Advisor, WhereIsWhere.

Navigate the map, discover offers, favourite brands for exclusive experiences and deals

According to Ernst & Young, on average Singaporeans spent over 12 hours a day, in 2017, on their digital devices. WhereIsWhere's interactive map and sophisticated filters - including favourite retailers, promotion timings, category lists, and sub-categories - makes searching for the nearest outlets offering products, services, time-based offers and experiences of interest easy and hassle-free, whenever, wherever they are. Consumers can even move their point of search to explore and discover new points of interest.

Once consumers spot what they want from merchants on the app, they can easily follow these merchants' latest flash promotions and offerings by clicking "Favourite". Doing so will drive curated push notifications and live updates from these merchants based on the consumer's choice of parameters. Consumers can also share the promotions they have discovered easily via a "Share" button.

Flash Promotions and Exclusive Offers

Terence Mak, CEO and founder of WhereIsWhere said: "Think of us as Google Maps, but for finding and connecting with deals and activities nearby. Not only do our users find plenty of options on what to see and do, but they can also follow their favourite brands and receive real-time offers and flash promotions. The retail sector is already betting big on WhereIsWhere's app to connect with consumers - since the launch of our discovery platform for Singapore retailers in end-February this year, we have surpassed 1,500 locations island-wide, and counting, and plans are already in place to launch WhereIsWhere in Asian markets beyond Singapore."

Among the first malls to be on board the platform, Millenia Walk is confident in driving brand awareness for its merchants and elevating consumers' retail experience to new heights through WhereIsWhere's location-based, real-time targeting capabilities. "Millenia Walk is constantly on the lookout for new technologies in line with delivering a specially curated shopping experience for Singapore consumers. We are excited to be among the first malls in Singapore to take a step forward in the retail digital revolution through WhereIsWhere," said Diane Aw, Head of Retail at Millenia Walk.

Consumers can download WhereIsWhere for free on Google Play and App Store.

Changi Airport welcomes an infusion of local F&B brands
Jul 26, 2018

SINGAPORE, 25 July 2018 – With 140 F&B options and growing, Changi Airport is a dining haven for every palate and occasion. From this month, foodies can look forward to nine fresh new food concepts from household brands - raising Changi Airport’s tasty credentials with five first-in-Changi brands and the airport’s largest 24-hour fast-casual dining concept.

Local food fare or Asian favourites that carry a local flavour have been well-loved by passengers and visitors who dine at Changi Airport’s public areas since it opened in 1981. Catering to the rising demand for local F&B brands while supporting Singapore F&B entrepreneurs, Changi Airport has been seeking more home-grown brands to set up shop here. In fact, more than half of the F&B operators at Changi Airport’s public areas are local brands.

“Singapore food is a reflection of our country as a melting pot of different cultures and ethnic groups. With more than 60 million passengers passing through our doors every year, Changi Airport is an ideal platform for sharing our rich culture, diversity and uniquely Singaporean cuisines with both locals and foreigners. There have been a tremendous amount of innovation and creativity in Singapore’s F&B industry in recent years. We look forward to continuing our support for like-minded local enterprises to showcase the best of Singapore brands at the airport and giving them a boost in reaching out to an international audience,” said Mr James Fong, Vice President for Landside Concessions, Changi Airport Group.

For its relentless efforts to curating the best dining experiences for all passengers and visitors, Changi Airport was recently recognised by the 2018 Airport Food & Beverage Awards (FAB) in three categories - Overall Airport Food & Beverage Offer Best Reflecting Sense of Place (for Terminal 4 Food Emporium), Asia Pacific’s Airport Food & Beverage Offer of the Year (for whole of Changi Airport), and Asia Pacific New Food & Beverages Concept of the Year (for multi-concept Japanese restaurant Sora).

Four new restaurants serving Asian delights will be welcoming passengers and airport visitors at T3’s Level 3. Feast your way through the line-up of authentic hawker and local western fares, Chinese claypot dishes and traditional Vietnamese cuisine at Colonial Club, COLLIN’s, A-One Signature and So Pho.

Colonial Club is a first-in-Singapore concept by the PappaMia Group, launching at Changi Airport. The 80-seater black and white restaurant pays tribute to Singapore’s rich culinary heritage in the colonial era, and serves an array of Hainanese-style western delights, Nyonya dishes, and local favourites with British-Colonial influence. Diners can look forward to savouring nasi lemak, nyonya laksa, Hainanese-style chicken chop and other old-school comfort food and unique specialty dishes.

A first-time operator at Changi Airport, COLLIN’S® is a household name synonymous with wholesome Western meals that are easy on the pocket. It started out as a Western food stall in a coffeeshop six years ago, and has since expanded to 23 outlets island wide. Available exclusively at the airport is a brand-new menu with almost 100 food items, including salmon dishes made with the finest quality King Salmon from New Zealand, a selection of steaks served on basalt plates, and a special spread of classic Western breakfast favourites that is served from 7am daily – a first for the brand. This restaurant also boasts a bar, an open kitchen concept with a fireplace oven for baking pizzas and even a charcoal oven that retains the unique flavours of the grilled dishes, adding a distinctive taste.

Two other new-to-Changi operators, A-One Signature and So Pho will also be joining the scene towards the end of 2018. Expect more than just their well-known steaming hot claypot and hotplate dishes, A-One Signature will be introducing exclusive menu items like the Claypot Porridge with Crab Roe and Prawn, Fried Rice in Hot Stone Bowl with Crab Meat, Roe and Shrimp and more.

For the first time, the Pezzo Group is bringing together five fast-casual concepts in a single space at Changi Airport’s T2 Arrival Hall. Established for their takeaway kiosks, the Pezzo Group has introduced their first 24-hour dine-in concept at an airport, with clusters of seating areas, that comprise Coffee Toast Express, Crave, Pezzo, Stuff’d and Yolé.

Debuting its first outlet in Singapore at Changi Airport, Coffee Toast Express is a new concept serving local Nanyang-style kopi, traditional toasts and local delights like Mee Rebus and Mee Soto. Diners can also indulge in the original Adam Road nasi lemak from Crave, delicious pizzas baked fresh daily at Pezzo, healthy Mexican and Turkish food and salads from Stuff’d and guilt-free desserts at Yolé.

T2 Departure Hall also welcomed three brands - Spanish yoghurt brand llao llao, Krispy Kreme and its delicious doughnuts and freshly brewed coffee, and Taiwanese bubble tea brand TP Tea’s first outlet in Singapore.
