Norway and Singapore Strengthen Green Maritime Collaboration

June 20, 2024by CN_MAR

Maritime CleanTech and Ocean Hyway Cluster are partnering with Innovation Norway to enhance green maritime collaboration between Norway and Singapore.

The new partnership began with a four-day business visit from Singaporean companies to Norway earlier this month.

This initiative, part of Innovation Norway’s High Potential Opportunities (HPO) program, aims to position Norwegian suppliers at the forefront of the Southeast Asian maritime market. The program is designed to help Norwegian companies become preferred partners and suppliers in key international projects.

Maritime CleanTech and Ocean Hyway Cluster are Norway’s leading business hubs for developing and commercializing low- and zero-emission solutions for shipping. Their partners have realized the world’s first all-electric and hydrogen vessels.

Singapore, as the world’s largest bunkering port, is transitioning to alternative marine fuels. Norway’s expertise in ammonia and hydrogen technologies positions it as a key player in building the necessary infrastructure for these next-generation fuels.

The HPO program offers Norwegian companies comprehensive support, including market advice, strategic positioning at key events, project identification, local partnership searches, financing procurement, and guidance on funding. Participants will benefit from networking opportunities with local stakeholders, government agencies, and profiling at industry events, facilitated by Innovation Norway and the broader Team Norway network.

“Norway has a strong legacy in maritime innovation, and strengthening ties with Singapore represents a significant step forward in our efforts to promote green shipping solutions globally. Through our program, supported by a strong Team Norway in Singapore, we will provide Norwegian companies with the support they need to succeed in the highly competitive Southeast Asian market,” said Jonathan Sørbye, Head of Trade and International Growth at Innovation Norway.

This collaboration also involves support from various Norwegian agencies and organizations, including the Norwegian Embassy in Singapore, the Norwegian Business Association in Singapore (NBAS), and Norwegian Energy Partners (NORWEP). The initiative will be led by Innovation Norway’s office in Singapore and supported by Maritime CleanTech and Ocean Hyway Cluster from Norway.
