                 ASIA MARINE & OFFSHORE INDUSTRIES DIRECTORY 2022/2023
 ASMI in the thick of green action
Also in the thick of action in greening the industry is the Association of Singapore Marine Industries (ASMI).
To promote collaboration and opportunities in marine and offshore projects, a MoU was signed at the Asia Pacific Maritime 2022 event in Singapore between ASMI and Korea Marine Equipment Association (KOMEA). The MoU, the first of its kind between the two countries, will enable both associations to forge stronger business relations, facilitate cross-border collaboration and leverage growth opportunities for their members in the shipbuilding and offshore sectors.
Mr Alex Choe, Chairman of the Enterprise & Productivity Committee at ASMI, was quoted as saying, “With the growth of the regional offshore industry, including the renewables markets, we are seeing a corresponding rise in demand for offshore installation vessels and other support vessels. This MoU will put us in a stronger position to create a wider range of greener, and more competitive and sustainable solutions to the maritime sector. This covers repairs, maintenance, modifications, and upgrades of vessels, as well as offshore renewables.”
At the first Marine and Offshore Symposium, Asmi said it has created a road map to guide companies in the marine and offshore engineering sector transit to more sustainable wind energy projects and better understand the opportunities in the relatively new area.
Singapore’s maritime performance from 2012 to 2021
Singapore leads the Green Wave
By growing a comprehensive range of maritime services to seize opportunities of the future, Singapore’s position as the International Maritime Centre is further strengthened. The Republic has what it takes to steer and lead the unprecedented green wave of transition in the marine and offshore industry.
While the maritime green transition is a global effort, Singapore as a global hub port plays an important role in catalysing the greening of international shipping and offering concrete contributions.
