There are many types of commercial
vessels. bulk carriers are ships that transport cargo types like
coal,ores of all kinds, grain,and other types of bulk cargo.
Pproduct tankers carries end or close to end products(mostly petroleum based),such as gasoline and diesel fuel. Drilling rigs can be small and portable such as those used in mineral exploration drilling, or huge, capable of drilling through thousands of metres of the Earth's crust; large "mud pumps" are used to circulate drilling mud (slurry) through the drill bit and the casing, for cooling and removing the "cuttings" whilst a well is drilled; hoists in the rig can lift thousands of tons of pipe; other equipment can force acid or sand into reservoirs to facilitate extraction of the oil or mineral sample; and permanent living accommodation and catering for crews which may be greater than a hundred people in number. Marine rigs may operate many hundreds of miles or kilometres offshore with infrequent crew rotation. Construction engineering or civil engineering is a professional career that involves the designing, planning, building, and management of infrastructure such as highway, bridge, airport, railway, building, dam, and utility. Construction Engineers are special in such that they are a hybrid between civil engineers and construction managers. They learn the design aspect much like civil engineers and construction site management functions like construction managers.
Singapore's marine Industry has grown significantly over the past 4 decades, evolving from a small regional ship repair and building centre into a world-class industry that serves globally. The industry includes ship repair, ship building, ship conversion (FPSO Floating Production Storage and Offloading), rig (jack-up) building, offshore engineering and other marine supporting services. Singapore is a one-stop marine centre for ship owners, managers and agents around the world. Singapore ship repair has gained global recognition for its special reconstruction jobs, which includes conversion and jumboisation. The strong capabilities in ship repair represents a multitude of repair (can be done at anchorage or shipyard), reconstruction and conversion jobs can be carried out with high quality and timely project delivery. Projects include the conversion of car carriers to livestock carriers and tankers to FPSOs. Vessels built include cableships, container vessels, product tankers, naval ships, landing ship tanks and patrol crafts.
