Dr Sanjay C Kuttan, Chief Technology Officer, Global Centre for Maritime Decarbonisation joins Keynote Panel on Day 1, 8th May 2024.

The Global Centre for Maritime Decarbonisation (GCMD) was formed on 1 August 2021 with funding from the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA), and six founding partners, namely BHP, BW, DNV Foundation, Eastern Pacific Shipping, Ocean Network Express and Seatrium.

Located in Singapore, GCMD was set up as a non-profit organisation to support decarbonisation of the maritime industry to meet or exceed the International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) goals for 2030 and 2050. The Centre is partnered with 26 leading maritime organisations including Hapag-Lloyd, BP, NYK Line, BCG, MSC, IBIA, International Chamber of Shipping, Singapore Shipping Association, Global Maritime Forum and Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller Center for Zero Carbon Shipping.

Dr Sanjay will be joining a discussion around ports and shipping collaborating to achieve 2050 goals. Shipping already has regulations to follow from the IMO but what do they need from Ports to achieve these goals.

Sanjay is Chief Technology Officer at the Global Centre for Maritime Decarbonisation (GCMD). Established by six founding partners from the maritime industry and supported by the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore, GCMD’s mission is to help the sector accelerate its decarbonisation efforts through shaping standards, deploying solutions, financing projects, and fostering collaboration across sectors. At GCMD, he oversees four project initiatives: ammonia as a marine fuel, assurance framework for drop-in green fuels, unlocking the carbon value chain, and energy efficiency technologies to improve fuel efficiency of ships.

Prior to joining GCMD, he was the Executive Director of the Singapore Maritime Institute which is responsible for funding maritime research projects with industry and building local capabilities in the maritime sector.
