Blue Ocean Solutions Pte Ltd offers ship owners the ability to reduce the environmental impact of their vessels by increasing the efficiency of their fuel combustion and therefore reducing their emissions. We are 70% owned by Keppel Corporation (www.kepcorp.com) and our core business is the provision of practical and innovative emulsified fuel systems (EFS) for marine diesel engines that assure 2-5% fuel savings and reduced NOx emissions. Our EFS can be applied to medium speed and slow speed marine diesel engines and it is capable of handling multi-fuels including HFO, MDO and MGO.
Our company was established in 2010 in response to the demand for fuel-saving solutions due to rising oil prices and stricter emissions controls. Since then Blue Ocean Solutions has rapidly built a worldwide presence managed from offices in Singapore and Finland. We are a proud member of the Keppel Offshore & Marine group which has a global network of yards and offices.
The success story of Blue Ocean Solutions started in July 2010 when the company was founded by Dr. Ng Kok Loon. He graduated with a Marine Engineering degree (1st class Honours) from the University of Newcastle Upon Tyne under the sponsorship of a Colombo Plan scholarship. He worked with Prof. R V Thompson on the applications of emulsified fuel to marine diesel engines as a research assistant in the 1980s while working on his doctorate degree. Dr. Ng continued his research work into emulsified fuel systems at the Nanyang Technological University in Singapore, with the support of the National Science Council and Neptune Orient Lines. Currently, Dr. Ng has two patents relating to emulsified fuel technology with several more pending.
