As a part of this MOU, EMA and Keppel are launching a grant name for
options regarding vitality storage programs and sensible energy grids for the
offshore and marine surroundings.
According to a joint assertion launched on Wednesday, these
options may scale back general vitality utilization and carbon footprint whereas
enhancing general operational effectivity.
Interested firms, analysis institutes, and institutes of upper studying can take part in a grant name established to encourage innovation and functionality constructing for the broader trade ecosystem in Singapore.

Shortlisted contributors can have the chance to testbed
their options by way of Keppel’s Floating Living Lab (FLL), the
first-of-its-kind offshore floating testbed in Singapore.
Expected to be operational by finish 2021, Keppel’s FLL will present
a platform for the trade and the analysis group to testbed and
commercialise promising energy and know-how options for the marine sector.
The FLL can have LNG bunkering services for harbour crafts and
small vessels. It may also home an embedded energy era system to energy
Keppel’s operations, with extra electrical energy to be exported to the nationwide
Ngiam Shih Chun, chief govt of EMA, mentioned: “We hope to develop revolutionary vitality options for the marine sector by way of this partnership with Keppel O&M.
