Lloyd's Register, A*STAR Open Joint Laboratory

May 10, 2013

Lloyd's Register (LR) and A*STAR's Institute of High Performance Computing (IHPC) have officially opened a joint laboratory, which will deliver innovative technological solutions to address the challenges faced by the marine, energy and offshore sectors.

This initiative is realized as part of LR's $35million investment in its Global Technology Center (GTC) set up in Singapore in 2012. It is also pursued under LR's agreement with the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR) to collaborate on R&D projects as a key part of the center's activities.

The joint laboratory will leverage on IHPC's capabilities in computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and engineering mechanics to develop computational modeling and simulation and bespoke technical solutions for businesses in the marine, energy and offshore sectors. Some of the joint projects, which rely on numerical modeling 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. Dr. Claus Myllerup, Senior Vice President of Energy Technology and Managing Director of LR's Singapore GTC, and Professor Alfred Huan, Executive Director of A*STAR IHPC, jointly officiated the opening.
