Singapore has brought together more than 20 organisations and companies to address the need for workforce competency in new fuels.

The Maritime & Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) and 22 partners signed a letter of intent, coinciding with the launch of Singapore Maritime Week, to develop a maritime energy training facility (METF).

Transport minister Chee Hong Tat told the Singapore Maritime Week audience that Singapore believes shipping’s energy transition cannot happen without the maritime workforce.
