Shipping Giant NYK Gets Involved in Singapore’s Tidal Power Project

September 2022

With the emerging marine energy sector gaining traction, Japanese shipping giant Nippon Yusen Kaisha (NYK) is aiming to take part in a tidal power project planned for Singapore. Singapore’s Bluenergy Solutions is conducting a demonstration project focused on the development of off-grid tidal power systems.

The tidal power project will include work on three key areas: energy storage, the cost of power generation and the efficiency of power generation. In order to make this a reality, the project will deploy three-bladed turbines underwater.

NYK was previously involved in a project that installed turbines beneath the Sentosa Boardwalk, which links the Singapore mainland to Sentosa Island.
