Green technology solutions provider Yinson GreenTech together with its Goal Zero Consortium partners (“Goal Zero”), has achieved an exciting milestone with the keel laying ceremony to mark the start of the construction of the Hydromover - a fully electric cargo vessel with swappable batteries.

The event was graced by Kenneth Lim, Assistant Chief Executive (Industry & Transformation), Maritime & Port Authority of Singapore (“MPA”), at the shipyard of Lita Ocean Pte Ltd and witnessed by fellow partners of Goal Zero and guests. The pilot vessel is on track to be launched by the second quarter of 2023 and ready for commercialisation in the second half of 2024.

Developed by Goal Zero, the lightweight, 18.5m Hydromover is able to carry cargo up to 25 tonnes (including batteries). The vessel, being all-electric, has zero emissions and targets to achieve up to 50% operational cost savings due to improved energy efficiency and lower maintenance costs. Its battery, when depleted, can be easily swapped within minutes to minimise operational downtime. It will also be equipped with advanced vessel management system to provide seamless control to the crew as well as state-of-the-art sensors to enable future readiness of autonomous operation.

The Hydromover was Goal Zero’s submission, and one of the three winning proposals announced by MPA and the Singapore Maritime Institute (“SMI”), to develop and commercialise an all-electric cargo vessel with interoperable swappable battery infrastructure solutions. The call for proposals had attracted participation from 73 companies and 10 institutes of higher learning. The consortiums with the winning proposals were given five years to launch their pilot vessels.

YGT spearheads the Hydromover’s overall programme management and commercialisation, while Seatech Solutions International Pte Ltd (“Seatech”) leads Goal Zero in vessel design and system integration. They are joined by Shift Clean Energy as battery technology partner; Rina Hong Kong Limited Singapore Branch as classification society; Singapore Institute of Technology and Technology Centre for Offshore and Marine Singapore developing the operational profiles of different harbour craft types through digital twinning of the Hydromover.

Yinson Executive Vice President New Ventures and Technology, Eirik Barclay, said: “Goal Zero is made up of like-minded and synergistic partners who are fully committed to helping the marine industry transition to net zero. Since being awarded the grant, we have achieved many important milestones, which have culminated in today’s keel laying to mark the official commencement of construction. We are very pleased with our rapid progress and are looking forward to launching our pilot vessel by the second quarter of 2023, way in advance of the original 5-year schedule planned for the program. This not only gives Goal Zero a head start to roll-out our all-electric cargo vessel, but it is also an important contribution to Singapore’s goals for all domestic harbour crafts to operate on low-carbon energy solutions by 2030 and to halve carbon emissions from these vessels by 2050.”

SeaTech Vice President Technology, Prabjot Chopra, said: “We appreciate the efforts of all our consortium partners that have resulted in the fast-track progress of this project and a special thanks to YGT for commercialisation of the pilot electric vessel leading the way for electrification of harbour crafts in Singapore.”

MPA Assistant Chief Executive (Industry and Transformation), Kenneth Lim, said: “Decarbonisation of domestic harbour craft is one of the key priorities under the Maritime Singapore Decarbonisation Blueprint 2050. The Goal Zero Consortium demonstrates the maritime industry’s commitment to collaborate and accelerate the electrification of harbour craft in Singapore. We applaud the consortium’s effort in pushing ahead the development timeline of the full electric Hydromover and will continue to support the industry to work together to develop and deploy green technologies for the maritime sector.”

Goal Zero is also supported by industry partners Batam Fast Ferry Pte Ltd, Bernhard Schulte (Singapore) Holdings Pte Ltd, DM Sea Logistics Pte Ltd, Marina Offshore Pte Ltd, Kenoil Marine Services Pte Ltd, Lita Ocean Pte Ltd and Jurong Port Pte Ltd.

eMooVit, a majority-owned subsidiary of Yinson Green Technologies ("YGT"), has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Rapid Bus, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Prasarana, to collaborate on a pilot programme for autonomous electric bus operations at Rapid BRT Sunway.

YGT is operated by the green technologies division of Yinson.

The collaboration leverages on eMooVit’s position as a specialised developer in autonomous vehicle and robotic technology as well as Rapid Bus’s position as the leading bus operator of the Rapid KL public transport network in the Klang Valley.

Under the agreement, eMooVit aims to provide an autonomous electric bus and chargEV charging system, technical support, vehicle maintenance and training sessions for Rapid Bus’s employees; while Rapid Bus shall provide the test track and workshop area as well as operational support.

eMooVit Chief Executive Officer, Dr Hairi Bin Zamzuri said, “We hope to introduce autonomous electric vehicles (AEVs) as they carry several advantages, including the potential to cut down on CO2 emissions, reduce traffic congestion, lower transportation and energy costs.

“In addition, according to a recent statement released by General Insurance Association of Malaysia, more than 80% of road accidents in Malaysia are caused by negligence. This is of great concern and our aspiration is for AEVs to limit human errors,” added Dr Hairi.

Yinson Senior Vice President Electromobility Ruslin Tamsir commented, “The government launched the National Automotive Policy 2020, with the aim of enhancing the automotive industry, through research and development especially in the area of next-generation vehicles. Through our subsidiary eMooVit, Yinson is excited to work with one of Malaysia’s leading bus operators, Rapid, in introducing next-generation vehicles like the autonomous electric bus."

“This is the first autonomous electronic bus project in Malaysia, and Rapid Bus will be the first public transport operator to embark on a pilot project using this technology. The implementation of this pilot project will focus on evaluating the impact of autonomous electric buses on the urban transport system in terms of technology, social and economy,” added Muhammad Yazurin Sallij, Chief Executive Officer, Rapid Bus.

YGT invests in novel green businesses, R&D and strategic partnerships to develop integrated smart green assets and infrastructure, ultimately aiming to create a proprietary digital marketplace that provides affordable and accessible tech-based low carbon products and services to help businesses and communities achieve their own net zero ambitions. YGT’s strategic investments currently include advanced hydrofoil system for electric vessels, e-bike and swappable batteries, autonomous and robotic technology, autonomous systems for electric vehicles, marine energy storage solutions, electric vehicle charging solutions and corporate leasing programme of its fleet of EVs.

Yinson Holdings Bhd’s net profit in the second quarter ended July 31, 2022 (2QFY23) rose 13.49% to RM143 million from RM126 million a year ago, supported by higher contributions from the group’s offshore production and offshore marine segment. Revenue for the quarter jumped 53.7% to RM1.62 billion from RM1.05 billion a year earlier mainly due to higher contribution from the group’s floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) operations mainly driven by the strengthening oil prices and higher contribution from engineering, procurement, construction, installation and commission (EPCIC) business activities. It declared an interim dividend of one sen per share, with an ex date of Nov 29 and payable on Dec 16.
