Singapore is looking to develop its first low or zero-carbon bunkering operation using hydrogen technologies, maritime and energy regulators have announced.

The city state’s Energy Market Authority (EMA) and the Maritime & Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) are inviting interested parties to submit proposals under an expression of interest (EOI) to pitch for the right to build, own and operate the facility which will be located on Jurong Island.

The invitation follows the recent launch of Singapore’s National Hydrogen Strategy, a key thrust of which is for Singapore to experiment with the use of advanced hydrogen technologies that are on the cusp of commercial readiness.
