MPA: 53 More Ships Go Green in Singapore

The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) today recognised another 53 Green Ships from 41 companies that have qualified for the Green Ship Program (GSP) at the Third Singapore Registry of Ships Forum (SRS Forum).

The GSP encourages Singapore-flagged ships to reduce carbon dioxide and sulphur oxides emissions. Qualifying Singapore-flagged ships can enjoy a reduction of Initial Registration Fees and a rebate on Annual Tonnage Tax. Since the GSP’s inception in 2011, 247 Green Ships under the Singapore Flag have joined the program.

10 maritime companies signed the Maritime Singapore Green Pledge today.

These include: Bernhard Schulte Shipmanagement (Singapore), Executive Offshore Pte Ltd, Maersk Drilling Holdings Singapore Pte Ltd, Odfjell Asia II Pte Ltd, Pan-United Shipping Pte Ltd, Rickmers Shipmanagement (Singapore) Pte. Ltd., Shenlong Maritime Pte Ltd, Solstad Offshore Asia Pacific Pte. Ltd., TATA NYK Shipping Pte. Ltd. and Vale.

 From 40 companies signing on to the Pledge in 2011, this has grown to 100 today. There are also now more than 200 ships under the Green Ship Program. We will continue with our efforts to promote cleaner, safer and more efficient shipping,” comments MPA’s Chief Executive, Andrew Tan.

Five companies were also recognised for contributing up to the 85th million GT in the SRS tonnage.

Participants of the forum also witnessed the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between MPA and Du Pont Company (Singapore) to collaborate on services and solutions for the maritime industry.

The MOU outlines areas for collaboration on working relationships focused on developing value propositions for services and solutions for the maritime industry. The projects will aim to promote the adoption of safety, operational risk and sustainability management practices.
