SUPPORTING LOCAL GREEN ENERGY DEVELOPMENT: AAL SHIPS HEAVY LIFT HRSG COMPONENTS FOR SINGAPORE’S FIRST HYDROGEN-READY POWER STATION


Singapore, Tuesday July 2nd, 2024: Singapore-headquartered premium multipurpose and project cargo carrier AAL Shipping (AAL) has delivered a cargo of heavy lift heat recovery steam generator (HRSG) components for Keppel Infrastructure’s 600 MW combined-cycle gas turbine (CCGT) power plant under construction on Jurong Island in Singapore – a site that will become the first hydrogen-ready and most advanced facility of its kind in the country.

The more than 7,000 cubic metre shipment was particularly significant to AAL, with this green energy project being of national importance to its home market of Singapore. A total of 15 components were shipped by AAL to Singapore from Masan, South Korea, on a single sailing, with individual unit weights exceeding 300 tonnes.

Located in the Sakra sector of Jurong Island, the Keppel Sakra Cogeneration Plant (KSC Plant) is expected to offset up to 220,000 tonnes of CO2 annually. It will initially operate with natural gas as the primary fuel (with the capacity to operate on fuels with 30 percent hydrogen content) and will be capable of shifting to run entirely on hydrogen. The plant is expected to commence commercial operations in the first half of 2026.

Yuko Kimura, Chief Representative of AAL Shipping Japan, who coordinated the shipment, said: “As a Singapore-headquartered company, we are delighted to be involved in this important local project that will support the country’s international climate commitment to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050.

“As Singapore’s economy grows so too will the demand for reliable green energy,” added Kimura. “The energy sector in Singapore accounts for almost 40 percent of the country’s carbon emissions and projects like these to decarbonise electricity generation is at the core of the country’s Green Plan.”

AAL’s global headquarters in Singapore houses not only key corporate departments that support the day-to-day shipping activities of the company, but also the core of our management, engineering, operations, and chartering teams as well as the home of its key support functions.

To ensure that all key trades between the Americas, Europe, Middle East, Asia, and Oceania are comprehensively serviced today and, in the future, AAL has embarked on a global recruitment drive over the last five years, bringing-in a steady influx of exciting talent to join the team. This is in addition to the recruitment efforts by AAL’s regional hub offices, where young talent has been brought onboard to help train the next generation of multipurpose shipping experts.

Christophe Grammare, Managing Director at AAL Shipping, said: “We recognise the importance of talent development, and AAL has been investing in recruiting and training young graduates across all key offices where maritime related studies exist such as Singapore, Houston and Hamburg.

“With increased activities for AAL in the Middle East and India markets, we have also increased resources in our Dubai hub office by strengthening the team with an additional and highly experienced chartering broker to adequately cover the volume of enquiries and bookings we are handling.”
