Speaking on the occasion, Capt.Rajesh Unni, CEO of Alpha Ori technologies said; “The Centre of Innovation will be our launchpad to develop products that would ease the pain points prevalent in today’s Ship Operations. In true spirit of the MOU’s that we have executed with MPA, TCOMS, LR and later with ST Electronics; we will be focussed on building capabilities locally and developing niche products that will add to the bottom line of Ship Operators”.

“Alpha Ori’s establishment of the SMARTShip COI in Singapore resonates well with MPA’s digitalisation plan for the maritime industry. Close partnerships amongst the maritime industry, technology partners and research institutes will collectively build a smarter maritime cluster enabled by technologies. I look forward to Alpha Ori’s new centre, which is poised to develop products and services that will transform ship management operations,” said Mr Kenneth Lim, Chief Technology Officer, MPA. COI also aims to develop and promote local talent in niche technology areas and project Singapore as a global leader in Maritime Technology innovation.
