Keppel Data Centres has signed a deal with City Gas and City-OG Gas Energy Services to explore LNG-powered floating park.
Under the memorandum of understanding, Keppel Corp’s unit and the two firms will jointly explore and evaluate LNG procurement strategies. They will also work on the energy transition to hydrogen in the longer-term.
Additionally, the trio will also deliberate on cold energy harnessing for the park and share expertise on steam methane reforming.
To remind, Keppel has earlier this year signed a similar deal with Australia-based Toll Group and Dutch Vopak.
City Gas is wholly-owned by Keppel and produces and retails piped gas in Singapore. City-OG Gas Energy Services is a business venture between City Gas and Japan’s Osaka Gas.
“The collaboration between Keppel DC, City Gas and City-OG broadens the efforts of the Keppel Group in reducing the carbon footprint of data centre operations,” said Keppel DC CEO Wong Wai Meng.
“We are harnessing synergies across the Group to explore the development of the FDCP, LNG and hydrogen-powered data centres, as well as technologies such as carbon capture, utilisation and sequestration,” he said.
