Under the FCA, EPS and China Power, tapping on their expertise in green energy production, storage, and transportation, will cooperate to advance the development and adoption of energy solutions for the maritime industry, including green ammonia and green methanol. Both companies recognise the pressing need to transition towards low-carbon alternatives, and this collaboration will enable them to leverage their respective strengths to accelerate progress in this vital area.
Representing EPS at the signing was Commercial Director Mr. Tay Gak Yong, who expressed his gratitude to China Power and stated, “The signing is a historic starting point that will strengthen the communication and strategic cooperation between our two organisations.
