The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) and Shell Eastern Trading have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to cooperate in the research and development and test-bedding of maritime projects in areas including clean fuel technologies, automation and digitalisation.

“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,” said Andrew Tan, chief executive of MPA.

“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.”{/mprestriction}
