Yard Group Keppel Offshore & Marine looks towards Denmark for sustainable maritime technology
On 6 October 2021 Danish Maritime – in close collaboration with the Royal Danish Embassy in Singapore – conducted a joint virtual delegation visit to the headquarters of the sizeable yard group Keppel Offshore & Marine in Singapore. The visit focussed on how new and clean technology can support efficiency gains in the maritime sector and the joint export promotion gathered 15 maritime companies from around Denmark.
Denmark´s ambassador to Singapore, H.E. Sandra Jensen Landi, gave opening remarks followed by an intervention regarding Danish competences and strongholds in energy-efficient and sustainable maritime technology by managing director of Danish Maritime, Jenny Braat.
Keppel Offshore and Marine was represented by a strong team of experts and purchasers, headed by Mr Jay Singham, Director of Group Commercial & Sustainability at Keppel.
In two simultaneous break-away sessions, the Danish companies introduced their products and services to Keppel followed by dialogue about the products presented and challenges faced by both sides. The constructive interaction with Keppel Offshore & Marine will be followed-up by specific meetings between Keppel and Danish providers of interest.
