What We Are Looking For

We like to invite committed industry stakeholders to submit proposals in the following development areas:  

  1. Industry Solutions: Applicants to develop and test commercial and operations solutions enhancing operations efficiency, transparency, and event visibility from oil terminals to bunker suppliers/craft to receiving ships. Proposed solutions must carry out API testing with Common Data Infrastructure (CDI) to ensure CDI-compatibility.
  2. Automated & Secured Regulatory Reporting: As part of automated regulatory reporting, applicants are to develop and test systems for transferring bunker and event data accurately and securely from source to MPA’s digitalBunker@SG API gateway. These data transfers must demonstrate end-to-end data integrity, cybersecurity and operational feasibility with minimum data hops or point-of-failure.
  3. Development/Enhancement of Hardware & Software to Enable Automated and Secured Data Transmission from MFM system: Applicants should engage credible MFM system providers for developing interoperable hardware and software systems to facilitate electronic capturing, storage and eventual transfer of raw data from these systems to MPA and B2B stakeholders. Applicants must highlight, if any, the required variations from the Code Of Practice For Bunker Mass Flow Metering (MFM), SS648: 2019 standards.
