Singapore is moving ahead with its plans to reduce the port’s carbon footprint.
The port authority, the MPA, has called for interested parties to put forward proposals “to design and promote” the use of electric harbour craft within port waters.
There some 1,600 such vessels in the port, including bunker barges. First off, the authority is looking at the electrification of smaller harbour craft in the 20 to 40 gross tonnage range, according to the MPA.
