Seatrium and ABS on Energy Transition

Seatrium, a global provider of engineering solutions to the offshore, marine, and energy industries, has announced a three-year Technology Collaboration Agreement (TCA) with American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) at the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) 2024 in Houston, Texas. This agreement builds on the successful history of collaboration between the two organizations and aims to accelerate decarbonization and energy transition in the maritime and offshore sectors.

The TCA with ABS, aptly titled “Accelerating Decarbonisation & Energy Transition,” will focus on four key themes: Decarbonization, Electrification, New Energies, and Digital Transformation. The goal is to develop and commercialize green retrofit products and services, including but not limited to carbon capture, energy efficiency enhancement measures such as air lubrication systems and wind-assisted propulsion, as well as the integration of low/zero-carbon energy sources on offshore assets, electrification, and digital technologies.

Mr. Chris Ong, CEO of Seatrium, said, “Seatrium is making significant strides in our visionary approach to engineering a sustainable, low-carbon energy future. This progress is achievable through pivotal industry collaborations with organizations like ABS. We are more than just partners; we are natural allies united by a shared mission and driven by a powerful vision for a sustainable future. ABS and Seatrium have achieved great successes through our previous collaborations, and we are committed to harnessing our distinct strengths and capabilities to push the boundaries and transform the way we approach decarbonization, energy transition, and digital transformation.”

Dr. Christopher J. Wiernicki, Chairman, and CEO of ABS, said, “Together, ABS and Seatrium have a remarkable history of pioneering the technological frontiers in the marine and offshore industries. Our shared vision for the future, combined with our twin cultures of innovation and collaboration, mean we are well-placed to safely deliver the rapid technological advance our industry needs if we are to meet emissions targets and capitalize on the opportunities offered by decarbonization and digitalization.”
