Keppel, NUS, NTU eye development of a floating hybrid renewable energy system 

The parties will study the technological and economic feasibility of its development.

Keppel Infrastructure’s applied technology innovation arm, KepInfra Energy Transition Centre (KETC) will be working with the National University of Singapore’s Solar Energy Research Institute of Singapore (SERIS) and Nanyang Technological University’s (NTU) Energy Research Institute @ NTU (ERI@N) to study the technological and economic feasibility of developing a first-of-its-kind floating hybrid renewable energy system (RES) for operations in Singapore.

“The floating hybrid RES concept comprises modular offshore floating solar platforms with the flexibility to integrate other renewable energy technologies, such as ocean wave energy conversion systems, tidal energy turbines and paddles, as well as wind turbines,” Keppel Infrastructure explained.

The study will explore the deployment of the floating hybrid RES at a particular offshore test site in Singapore waters, subject to the relevant regulatory approvals.

If the study becomes a success, the parties will design and deploy a pilot system with at least 100 MW of renewable power generation capacity which can be scaled up over time.


After implementing the novel system in Singapore, the aim is to roll out the floating hybrid RES innovation to other regions in Asia and beyond.
