KBR will assess scenarios for alternative hydrogen-based energy sources to supply new data centre investment and deployment in Singapore, the company confirmed today (27th Jan).
Sharing details of the news, KBR said it was awarded the study from Keppel Data Centres, a company which last year partnered with Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Asia Pacific to explore the implementation of a hydrogen-powered tri-generation plant concept for data centres.
“This study is an exciting opportunity for KBR as we help create a more innovative, sustainable future through the global energy transition initiative,” said Jay Ibrahim, KBR President, Technology Solutions
“Our experts are leading the way and our recent work with the Prime Minister’s Office of Singapore, providing a road map for their energy transition through to 2050 and specifically a Hydrogen Economy, combined with this study brings Singapore another step closer to achieving net zero carbon emissions.”
The project will be supported by KBR’s wider Strategic and Advisory Consulting group.
