Singapore to Expand Green Technology, Intelligent Shipping Systems

DNV GL and the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) have signed an MOU to further innovation in intelligent shipping systems. The renewed MOU extends an earlier collaboration for another three years and expands it to now include autonomous technologies, intelligent shipping and data analytics.

Singapore to Expand Green Technology, Intelligent Shipping Systems

The MOU aims to promote maritime R&D in the following areas:

• Intelligent shipping systems such as autonomous vessels and drones for maritime purposes, or the use of data analytics to create robust and optimal shipping solutions. These systems will help to enhance safety and sustainability of shipping and port activities.

• Green Ports: an examination of the potential environmental gains to be made through the use of energy saving and emission reduction technology in ports - in terms of infrastructure, processes and harbor craft.

• Marine environment and resources: projects which are designed to cut emissions and boost fuel efficiency, through improvements in operational maintenance and also research into LNG as an alternative fuel.

• Organization of maritime-related thought leadership forums to promote green shipping, green ports and green technology within the Singapore maritime community.

The earlier 2014 MOU focused on LNG research and technology, covering both risk assessment and safety, and simulation study and training. It also looked at technology to reduce emissions.
