Event Navigation

NBAS, in partnership with Maritime and Port Authority Singapore, the Royal Norwegian Embassy in Singapore and Innovation Norway, is hosting a special insights panel on decarbonization in the maritime industries in conjunction with Singapore Maritime Week.

The Norwegian maritime industry has a strong presence in Singapore and an excellent cooperation with MPA on maritime innovation. The two countries both have high ambitions and clear goals on sustainability. In this special insight panel, we explore how “Norwegian” fuel sources, like electrification, green ammonia and hydrogen can contribute to decarbonization.

Date: Wednesday, 21st April 2021
Time: 3-5.00 PM (SGT)

DNV is our gold sponsor for the event. They recently established a regional Centre of Excellence in Singapore for South East Asia to drive decarbonization and autonomy in shipping. Read more about it here.
