Singapore: Lloyd’s Register has established a group technology centre (GTC) in Singapore to deliver innovation and solutions to the energy and maritime sectors. It has also reached an agreement with the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR) to collaborate on R&D projects as a key part of the centre’s activities.
The intent is to establish a joint lab facility with A*STAR’s Institute for High Performance Computing (IHPC) to co-develop applications and solutions in the marine and offshore sectors. This arrangement will promote R&D activities in modelling and simulation, providing bespoke technical solutions for companies in these sectors.
“Our investment in the new Lloyd's Register Group Technology Centre in Singapore, coupled with the agreement with A*STAR, represents a shared vision to create a long-term centre of excellence for technology, innovation and research that will benefit Singapore, industry and society at large,” said Richard Sadler, ceo of Lloyd’s Register. “It underlines our global commitment to understanding the sciences and technologies that help to ensure that people are safe and that essential assets perform as required.” [25/09/12]
