Towards zero emissions – sharing the Norwegian experience
NBAS, in partnership with Maritime and Port Authority Singapore, the Royal Norwegian Embassy in Singapore and Innovation Norway, is hosting a special insights panel on decarbonization in the maritime industries in conjunction with Singapore Maritime Week.
The Norwegian maritime industry has a strong presence in Singapore and an excellent cooperation with MPA on maritime innovation. The two countries both have high ambitions and clear goals on sustainability. In this special insight panel, we explore how “Norwegian” fuel sources, like electrification, green ammonia and hydrogen can contribute to decarbonization.
Date: Wednesday, 21st April 2021
Time: 3-5.00 PM (SGT)
The event is hosted at Alta production and streamed via Zoom.
