11 joint industry projects receive $1.62m for maritime innovation

The projects are co-funded by MPA and MINT Fund.

The Maritime and Port Authority (MPA) has awarded a total of $1.625 million to 11 joint industry projects on maritime digitalisation and additive manufacturing for ship and marine parts.

The selected projects have been co-funded by MPA’s Maritime Innovation and Technology (MINT) Fund.

Five of these projects will address operational resilience and productivity needs, which will help transform the way operations are carried out post-COVID. These are scheduled to be finished by Q3 of 2021.

Meanwhile, another six projects will look at using additive manufacturing for Singapore to become a hub for just-in-time provision of marine parts. Its consortium aims to trial the use of 26 3D-printed parts onboard Singapore-registered vessels. The six projects are to be completed by Q1 of 2022.

MPA has launched joint calls for proposals in these two areas with the Singapore Shipping Association and National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Cluster earlier this year, and has received 40 proposals from the maritime industry.
