SIT, DNV ink 3-year partnership on maritime decarbonization and digitalization

The parties will cooperate in three key areas.
The Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT) has joined hands with a maritime advisor, DNV, to advance net-zero ambitions in the Lion City’s maritime sector.

Under the three-year partnership, SIT and DIV will cooperate in three key areas, including the development of ship and system designs using simulation-based approaches.

The parties will also conduct joint industry research projects on decarbonisation and digitalisation with entities in the Singapore maritime ecosystem 

The Research & Development (R&D) and educational initiatives under the agreement will be spearheaded by the DNV Maritime Decarbonization & Autonomy Regional Centre of Excellence in collaboration with SIT's Sustainable Maritime Engineering Strategic Translational Research Programme.

R&D initiatives between DNV and SIT will focus on advancing zero-emission and autonomous ships, shore remote control and simulation centres, and shore charging and future fuel bunkering infrastructure.
Through the partnership, SIT and DNV will also conduct lessons on optimising ships and system design for advanced hydrodynamics, energy management system, emission control, and system safety. 
SIT students can likewise collaborate with DNC on capstone projects in novel maritime technology applications and perform their Integrated Work Study Programme at DNV.
