23 May 2023

The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) on Wednesday (17 May) said it recently partnered with American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) to establish a Surveyor Attachment Programme.

MPA said the programme is to equip MPA surveyors with the latest ABS technologies, processes, methodologies, and techniques in remote surveys, methanol fuel vessel surveys, and gas carrier surveys.

As part of the program, MPA surveyors will engage in ABS remote surveys and audits and stay updated on technologies such as batteries, methanol, ammonia, and biofuel modelling and simulation. 

“They will also receive on-the-job training in advanced simulation and modelling technologies used to evaluate ship performance and carbon efficiency. The training will take place both locally and through overseas attachments,” MPA said in a social media post. 

The agreement was formally signed by MPA Director (Shipping) Mr Cheah Aun Aun, ABS Regional Director Operations Mr Johnny M. Garrett Jr., and witnessed by ABS Senior Vice President Operations Mr Arinjit Roy.
