Lloyd's Register (LR) and A*STAR's Institute of High Performance Computing (IHPC) have teamed up to open a joint laboratory geared to deliver innovative technological solutions to address the issues faced by the marine, energy and offshore sectors. The move was made possible by LR's $35million investment in its Global Technology Centre (GTC) set up in Singapore last year.

The joint laboratory will leverage on IHPC's capabilities in computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and engineering mechanics to develop computational modelling and simulation, and arrange technical solutions for businesses in the marine, energy and offshore sectors. Some of the joint projects, which rely on numerical modelling using CFD tools, include wave-in-deck impact analysis on offshore structures, floating offshore wind turbines' operating in deep water areas and the enhancing of virtual wave tank and deep ocean basin capabilities.

Both the joint laboratory and IHPC are co-located within A*STAR premises at Fusionopolis to facilitate close and seamless exchanges between researchers from both parties. More than 10 researchers are now carrying out projects in the laboratory. Claus Myllerup, SVP of energy technology and managing director of LR's Singapore GTC, and Alfred Huan, executive director of A*STAR IHPC, jointly officiated the opening.

A*STAR's cooperation with Lloyd's Register provides a strategic platform to develop key research capabilities in this important sector, indicated the organisations.
