Pacific International Lines (PIL) has appointed Goh Chung Hun as General Manager, Fleet Division, effective from this month — succeeding Captain R.S. Minhas from 15th February 2021.
In a statement, the Singapore-headquartered shipping company said Goh will be overseeing the management of PIL's fleet, including technical, marine operations, safety and crewing at PIL.
Goh brings with him almost 30 years of fleet management, technical, marine operations and seafaring experience.
Prior to joining PIL, he was Director (Shipping) / Director (Marine) at the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA), where he managed the Singapore registry of ships, flag state control, port state control, marine casualty investigations, maritime regulations, as well as the training and certification of seafarers.
He was also the head of Singapore’s delegation to the IMO for the Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC) and chaired the IMO working group that finalised the upcoming ban on the use of heavy fuel oil in the Arctic.
During the Covid-19 pandemic, he was also responsible for setting up a specialised team to manage and facilitate safe crew change at the Port of Singapore.
