Lloyd’s also entered a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) for the development of an autonomous ready ship design, where it will carry out cooperative studies on autonomous systems in navigational autonomy.

Elsewhere the organization and its partners also formed The Silk Alliance for the development of a green corridor cluster in Asia. The alliance will work together to accelerate maritime decarbonization

The organization has also undertaken feasibility studies on clean ammonia bunkering at world-scale ports in Western Australia’s Pilbara region.
