More electrification, less smog

Singapore, a zero-emission future

by Port News Editorial Staff

Singapore is preparing to enter the future with zero emissions: the Maritime and Port Authority and the Singapore Maritime Institute have launched an international call to gather innovative ideas in the cold ironing field.

In total, $6.6 million will be made available from the Maritime Green Future Fund to develop the adoption of low carbon technologies that will enable the Asian port to advance in terms of efficiency and environmental sustainability.

The authorities expect commercially viable proposals for the electrification of quays and the construction of shoreside power generators.

“We look forward to engaging our industry partners and specialist institutes on a path that will enable the port to become even more sustainable,” said Kenneth Lim, Chief Technology Officer at the MPA’s Technology and Talent Development department.

Interested parties have until October 31st to participate in the call.
