The Energy Market Authority (EMA) and Keppel Offshore & Marine (Keppel O&M) have jointly awarded a research grant to pilot Singapore’s first floating energy storage system (ESS). 

This is part of the US$10m partnership between EMA and Keppel O&M to develop innovative energy solutions in the marine sector. 

Keppel O&M will be working with the consortium to deploy a 7.5MW/7.5MWh lithium-ion battery ESS on Keppel O&M’s floating living lab (FLL). This will be Singapore’s largest ESS deployment to date, with sufficient capacity to power more than 600 4-room HDB flats a day. 

The ESS will also explore the first-of-its-kind battery stacking solution in Singapore. This could potentially reduce the footprint required for deployment by up to 40%. 

Keppel Offshore & Marine (Keppel O&M) is a leader in providing total solutions to the offshore, marine and energy industries. Bolstered by a global network of yards and offices, it has extensive know-how across a wide range of capabilities – design and engineering, new builds, conversions and repairs, and support services.
