Who should apply

This HPO project targets two major initiatives within the "Maritime Singapore Decarbonization Blueprint 2050," which represent significant opportunities for Norwegian companies with relevant technologies and solutions.

  • Electrification of domestic harbor vessels: With over 1600 diesel-powered vessels operating within its waters, Singapore aims for zero emissions for harbor vessels and leisure boats by 2050, with all new harbor vessels being fully electric or capable of using clean biodiesel or hydrogen by 2030. The waiving of harbor fees for low- and zero-carbon harbor vessels by the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore and other government incentives and regulations aim to accelerate this transition. This will drivethe market for Norwegian companies with the relevant solutions.
  • Cutting-edge future marine fuels: Singapore is currently the world's largest bunkering port, and the transition to alternative marine fuels presents new business opportunities for Norwegian companies. Norway's expertise in ammonia and hydrogen technologies positions us as a potential key player in building the infrastructure required for the next generation of marine fuels, including bunkering technologies as well as handling, safety, and storage solutions.
