Oceanus Group Limited is proceeding with its development of a self-sustaining floating food city, and is currently in talks with officials to locate the city off the coast of Singapore.

The Oceanus Aquapolis City will integrate renewable technology with hi-tech aquaponics to grow vegetables, seaweed and fish in an environmentally friendly, multi-story closed-contained platform. 

The city is one of the projects being developed as part of a recent agreement between Oceanus Group, Shaw Investment Holdings Pte Ltd, and China Construction Seventh Engineering Division Corp., Ltd. The companies entered into a memorandum of understanding to jointly explore global aquaculture-related investment opportunities and development projects worth US$500 million.

“Food security is increasingly a key concern for many governments around the world,\" stated Peter Koh, Executive Director and Chief Executive Officer of Oceanus Group. \"With our expertise in aquaculture, China Construction’s deep knowledge in construction and infrastructure and Shaw’s proven track record in investments, we believe this tripartite collaboration is well-positioned to capitalize on the bourgeoning aquaculture opportunities globally.\"

The project will take 5 to 7 years from its current conceptualization to the launch of the Oceanus Aquapolis City.
