Senoko is located in Sembawang, in the northern part of Singapore. It is most known for Senoko Power Station, which generates and supplies electricity, and the Senoko Fishing Port.

Etymology[edit]

In Franklin and Jackson's Plan of Singapore (1830), the place name Senoko was found and referred to the "River Simko" or Sungei Senoko in Malay. The river is now merged into Sungei Sembawang, which currently has the mouth of the former Sungei Senoko.
