Singapore’s Jurong Port has inked an agreement with Nanyang Technological University to jointly research ad develop alternative energy applications.
The MoU will also include research into smart multi-energy systems and environmental monitoring and will allow research projects and testbed solutions to be conducted as part of Jurong Port’s Living Lab programme.
“We are delighted with this partnership with NTU. It forms the inaugural component of Jurong Port’s Living Lab programme to test bed solutions for our journey towards a ‘Next Generation Multipurpose Port’’, said Mr Ooi Boon Hoe, chief executive officer, Jurong Port.
The MoU, covering a period of five years, will also have both parties jointly conducting a mutual exchange of expertise including staff secondment programmes.
