Seatrium and the Technology Centre for Offshore and Marine, Singapore (TCOMS) announced the establishment of the Seatrium-TCOMS Ocean Lab to advance the design and operational performance of smart ocean systems and infrastructure.
With this agreement Seatrium and TCOMS will jointly pursue five main research thrusts centred on offshore renewable energy such as floating offshore wind systems; cleaner oil and gas solutions including smart floating production platforms; smart marine systems such as autonomous vessels and green ships; new energy solutions including ammonia (NH3), hydrogen (H2) and Carbon Capture, Utilisation and Storage (CCUS); as well as digitalisation & data analytics for enhanced predictability and reliability of ocean systems and its infrastructure.
The agreement builds on joint projects conducted over the past five years between TCOMS and Seatrium, ranging from the digital twinning of autonomous tugs and offshore energy systems to the design evolution and validation of future offshore wind platforms and marine infrastructure. Some of the projects made use of the TCOMS ocean basin facility which can recreate extreme ocean conditions that may be faced by ocean systems and infrastructure across their asset lifecycle.
