HOUSTON— KBR (NYSE: KBR) announced today that it has been awarded a study by Keppel Data Centres to assess scenarios for alternative hydrogen-based energy sources to supply new data center investment and deployment in Singapore.
Through our Technology Solutions business, KBR will leverage its global energy transition experience to assess sustainable technology solutions for producing low to nil carbon hydrogen sources of energy. The study will compliment work by Keppel Data Centres, a leading developer and operator of data centers across Asia Pacific and Europe, as well as Royal Vopak, a world leading independent tank storage company.
KBR, Keppel Data Centres and Royal Vopak are strongly committed to environmentally sustainable business practices, reducing carbon footprint, and developing and implementing solutions for an increasing demand for cloud based, centralized data services.
“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. Our commitment to sustainability is evident by the relationships we forge in the communities in which we operate, and this contract reaffirms that pledge.”
KBR has been intimately involved in Singapore’s drive to achieve net zero carbon emissions at a government advisory level. This project will be supported by KBR’s wider Strategic and Advisory Consulting group which includes experts in the hydrogen, energy efficiency, decarbonization and process optimization fields.
