Building upon ABS-MPA Maritime Technology Professorship programme at the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD), this agreement covers such areas as LNG bunkering, traffic management and safe navigation in ports.

"For more than 50 years, ABS has been committed to working alongside the MPA, industry and academia to foster the safe and environmentally responsible growth of the Singapore marine and offshore industries," said ABS chairman and CEO Christopher Wiernicki. "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."

MPA chief executive Andrew Tan added: "MPA works closely with classification societies to undertake research activities in Singapore. 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 position as a global maritime knowledge hub."
