JTC sites visit on 26 February, 2013 

The NTU-JTC Industrial Infrastructure Innovation Centre (I3C) organised an introductory visit for NTU students to two JTC developments, namely Jurong Island and one-north.

Jurong Island is home to almost 100 leading global petroleum and specialty chemical companies. With its dedicated “plug & play” infrastructure, Jurong Island enables companies to enjoy cost savings through third-party utilities and services, and at the same time build synergy through product integration.

one-north is a 200-ha development designed to host a cluster of world-class research facilities and business parks, all built to support growth in Biomedical Sciences, Infocomm Technology, Media, Physical Sciences and Engineering. one-north aims to create an ideal work-live-play-learn environment conducive for creative minds to excel and where innovation reigns. It is to be a melting point of talent, ideas and business opportunities.

The visit started from NTU and the first stop was the ChemGallery @ Jurong Island where the students were shown a video about the history and formation of Jurong Island. This was followed by a visit to the Jurong Rock Caverns (JRC) Site Office where the students learnt more about the construction, purpose and scale of the JRC project. The next stop was Fusionopolis where the students visited the interactive one-north gallery, the sky bridge and the 440-seater Genexis Theatre. The visit ended with refreshments being served at the Lounge Area at Connexis North where the students had the opportunity to mingle with HR personnel and engineers from JTC.
