Official opening of Singapore Maritime Gallery

October 03, 2012

The Wellard Group was delighted to participate in the official opening of the Singapore Maritime Gallery on Wednesday, 12 September, 2012.

Located at the ferry terminal, at 31 Marina Coastal Drive, South Pier, the Singapore Maritime Gallery is now accessible to the public.

A model of Wellard’s MV Ocean Swagman is proudly on display in the Gallery.

A technologically advanced and purpose-built vessel, the MV Ocean Swagman has the capacity to transport 6000 cattle or 25,000 sheep, or a combination of both.

The MV Ocean Swagman boasts advanced livestock vessel design and construction with singular focus – enhanced welfare and safety of livestock, vessel and crew.

The MV Ocean Swagman has been classified by the Registro Italiano Navale (RINA) as a ‘Green Star Vessel’, due to its low emissions and pollution prevention design and systems.

Wellard Managing Director Mauro Balzarini said Wellard was proud the model of the Ocean Swagman sat proudly alongside models of other modern vessels.

“The MV Ocean Swagman helped set new standards for the safe transport of livestock so its inclusion in the Gallery’s models is a reflection of its importance to the world livestock fleet,” he said.
