ABS and the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) have singed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to promote maritime research and development (R&D) and innovation.

Over the next five years, ABS and MPA will work on maritime R&D covering alternative/clean fuel research and technology, such as LNG bunkering, and both operational configuration studies and risk assessment and safety.

They will also look to promote maritime technology to the Singapore maritime community through leadership workshops and discussions, and R&D on port systems, facilities and safety.

“This MoU with ABS will strengthen Maritime Singapore’s R&D capabilities in the areas of green shipping, future port and maritime technologies. It also aims to promote Singapore’s positions as a global maritime knowledge hub,” said Andrew Tan, chief executive, MPA.

Christopher J Wiernicki, CEO, ABS, added: “This MoU is a further sign of our commitment to work with all stakeholders in this growing hub of global trade to further R&D efforts that provide practical solutions to today’s most pressing challenges.”
