Bureau Veritas has launched a new Centre of Excellence in Singapore, aiming to support growth in decarbonisation initiatives and the development of new technologies in the port city.
The new innovation Centre of Alternative Renewables Energy (iCARE) is supported by the Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB). Directing the centre will be Koh Shu Yong, previously Head, Commercial & Innovation, Bureau Veritas Marine & Offshore in Singapore, backed by Ashish Anilan, Sustainability Leader in BV’s Southeast Asia Zone.
“As our business continues to strengthen in Singapore and across the region, this investment is aligning BV with stakeholders to ensure collaboration, quickening the journey to GHG and sustainability targets,” said David Barrow, Vice-President, Bureau Veritas, Marine & Offshore.
“We already have new sustainability and innovation projects under way, and we will be working closely with the recently opened Maritime Centre for Decarbonisation in Singapore. The support of the EDB reflects Singapore’s proactive and leading edge in future technology and decarbonisation.”
