NYK to join off-grid tidal energy demonstration in Singapore


Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha (NYK) will participate in a tidal energy demonstration in off-grid areas of Singapore conducted by Bluenergy Solutions.

This is a tidal energy demonstration in an “off-grid” area that is not connected to the power grid.

Unlike wind energy, which is affected by weather conditions, tidal energy uses tidal currents, which are stable in volume and direction throughout the year, making them an extremely efficient renewable energy source featuring a generated amount of power that is easy to predict.

NYK will examine the power generation efficiency, the cost of power generation, and storage.

Bluenergy Solutions, a Singapore Company, is a marine renewable energy solution provider integrating energy generation, storage, and distribution.

In 2019, NYK participated in Singapore’s first tidal power demonstration on the Sentosa Boardwalk, a bridge connecting Singapore Island and Sentosa Island.

Earlier this week NYK announced it will participate in a marine biofuel demonstration project launched by the Global Center for Maritime Decarbonisation (GCMD).
