Danfoss Opens New Office and Marine Application Development Center in Singapore
The new Singapore Office and ADC is a very important milestone for Danfoss in building our visibility in Asia Pacific where we have been active since 1983, growing from our first office here to 14 offices and facilities across the region.
Danfoss in Singapore opened a new office and state-of-the-art Marine & Offshore Application Development Center (ADC) at the International Business Park on January 25th, 2018. The opening was attended by the Danish Ambassador to Singapore Dorte Vech Vizard and Dr Sanjay Kuttan from NTU. The move is designed to help cope with increased demand placed on infrastructure and energy as economies grow in the Southeast Asian region.
Speaking at the event, Mr. Soren Kvorning, President of Danfoss Asia Pacific said "The Prime Minister recognized recently, that there are two important themes for Singapore's ASEAN Chairmanship: That of resilience and innovation against common challenges which are bound to impact the region's prosperity. One of these challenges is climate change. Our Marine Application Development Center is to help increase innovation close to- and with customers at system level for the Marine and Offshore industry to better manage climate challenges in the industry."
With the approaching implementation of the ASEAN Single Window Initiative further boosting trade, Singapore and its neighbours are well on track to be the world's 4th-largest economy by 2050 and unrivalled as one of the fastest-growing consumer markets in the world.
This economic transformation aligns with the Danfoss imperative in helping customers improve energy and operational efficiency. Its array of technologies including fast developing, hybrid power solutions to create efficient operations for the seaborne trade.
"To gain a sense of the potential impact of better air quality from reduced emissions and fuel savings, imagine proven cases from such hybrid solutions where 20,000 litres of diesel annually saved by using such a system with the 130,000 plus ships that call throughout the year at Singapore's port [i],"added Kvorning.
With the new ADC, Danfoss is better positioned to investigate, test, and demonstrate applications that can help designers as well as decision makers to learn and develop new applications and digital opportunities, going beyond Singapore into the region to provide positive climate impact.
