Maritime engineering, design and analysis services provider Longitude Engineering on Thursday (10 March) said it will be helping the Asian Development Bank develop a feasibility study for Indonesia national energy company PT Pertamina.
The study will help Pertamina develop a roadmap for the integration of low carbon fuels into Indonesia’s domestic shipping industry.
It also aims to identify the potential emissions impact with the transition to low carbon alternative fuels, including hydrogen and hydrogen derivative fuels.
Longitude’s role is to lead the study and provide technical expertise related to maritime applications of hydrogen.
The study is being executed in collaboration with shipping, energy regulatory and financial expertise from other study team members consisting of experts from the Rebel Group and Equitable Maritime Consulting.
The study and Pertamina’s overarching objectives are aligned with Indonesia’s Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) and the UN’s Sustainability Goal (SDG) 7, which is to ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all.
“It is exciting to support a national energy company in developing a roadmap to utilise domestic renewable energy resources to reduce the carbon footprint of its domestic shipping fleet,” said Jacob Genauer, Managing Director of Longitude Singapore’s operation.
“We are pleased to have the opportunity to work with the Asian Development Bank and Pertamina on this project.”
The project runs from January until the end of the second quarter 2022.
