SAF commissions new generation float bridge


Commissioning of SAF's New Float Bridge and CBRE Defence Capabilities

Minister for Defence Teo Chee Hean, commissioned the SAF's new generation float bridge and Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Explosives (CBRE) Defence capability at Marina Bay this evening (24 Apr 2007).
The commissioning ceremony was part of the commemoration of the 40th anniversary of the Singapore Combat Engineers.
The M3G Float Bridge replaces ageing bridging equipment and significantly enhances the Singapore Army's ability to cross waterways.
Besides providing greater mobility and for faster deployment, the new bridging equipment also offers improved carrying capacity and requires less people to operate.
The commissioning of the CBRE Defence Capability, coupled with the launch of the GR 660 Radiation Surveillance System, marks a major milestone in the CBRE Defence Group's ability to respond to the full spectrum of chemical, biological, radiological and explosives threats to homeland security.
The M3G Float Bridge and CBRE defence capabilities are another step forward in the Singapore Combat Engineers' transformation journey as part of the 3rd Generation SAF.
The venue of the commissioning event is significant as the Singapore Combat Engineers was part of the creative team that mooted the idea of the floating platform as a venue for mass spectator events, in view of the closure of the National Stadium to make way for the new Kallang Sports Hub.
