MPA, Wärtsilä collaborate to accelerate maritime decarbonisation, digitalisation

The collaboration would develop solutions that scaled to benefit the global maritime community.

The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) and Wartsila have signed a memorandum of understanding to introduce next-generation renewable fuels, optimise digital port operations, and develop future talent.

The collaboration would allow the two agencies to explore renewable fuel technologies and procedures to ensure safe handling and operation, develop reliable, secure, and cost-effective data exchanges between vessels and port operations, and work with partners and stakeholders to equip the maritime workforce with skills and competencies relating to digitalisation and decarbonisation.

Kenneth Lim, MPA Assistant Chief Executive of Industry and Transformation, said that the agency looked forward to working with Wärtsilä "to unlock our collective potential and develop solutions that scaled to benefit the global maritime community."
