The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) and Shell Eastern Trading (PTE) Ltd (Shell) have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to cooperate in the research and development and test-bedding of projects within the maritime industry in the areas of clean fuel technologies, digitalisation and automation.

Under the MoU, the two entities have agreed to collaborate on developing innovative solutions to reduce emissions in the port; explore the greater use of automation; and support the study and development of digitalisation, including electronic data exchanges among stakeholders, to enhance safety, efficiency and security of maritime communication.

The MoU was signed by Nick Potter, Shell Trading's General Manager, Asia Pacific-Middle East, Shipping & Maritime and Andrew Tan, Chief Executive of the MPA at the Singapore Maritime Institute (SMI) Forum 2017. Witnessing the signing ceremony was Senior Minister of State for Transport and Health, Dr Lam Pin Min.

"Singapore will continue to invest in future capabilities to build up a strong maritime cluster to generate good employment opportunities and stay ahead of the competition. We are pleased to work with industry partners like Shell to drive the digital transformation of the maritime industry in Singapore in the areas of electronic data interchange, automation, intelligent systems and cleaner energy," said Mr Andrew Tan.
