Statement by Sembcorp Marine

On January 15, 2015, Sembcorp Marine Ltd’s tug towing subsidiary Jurong Marine Services Pte Ltd had three employees witnessing a sea trial of a new tug boat it had planned to charter.

Unfortunately, the tug boat sank during the sea trial off Jingjiang, China, and a search and rescue mission is underway for these three employees, two of whom are Singaporeans and one an Indonesian.

The Group has informed their families and has made arrangements for them to travel to Shanghai. Management will continue to provide support and comfort and updates on the search mission to the families.

Further updates will be provided as and when more information is available.
