MPA shortlists 11 design proposals for Singapore’s electric harbour craft 

It received 55 proposals from 32 international and local companies and consortia.

The Maritime and Port Authority has shortlisted 11 design proposals for  Singapore’s electric harbour craft (e-HC) out of the 55 it received.

The 11 proposals were from seven companies and consortia.

Once the designs and prototypes from the shortlisted submissions are ready, MPA said participants can “progressively market these enhanced e-HC reference designs to interested parties and aggregate production demand from the industry.”

“The use of ready reference designs and production at scale is expected to help reap cost savings for companies planning to make the transition to e-HCs,” the MPA said.

Six of the 11 e-HC designs have secured the relevant technical approvals from Classification Societies such as the American Bureau of Shipping, Bureau Veritas, China Classification Society, DNV and RINA.

Coastal Sustainability Alliance, marinEV1, and Pyxis Maritime Pte Ltd submitted the six designs. 

They will work directly with MPA and its researchers over the next two to six months to optimise and validate their e-HC designs, depending on their current maturity and readiness.

MPA will further develop the e-HC designs of the other five proposals submitted by CAEV+ Consortium, China Everbright Environment Group Limited, Cyan Renewables Consortium, and Gennal Engineering Pte Ltd.
