Sunseap Group, Southeast Asia’s main sustainable power supplier, is growing a big floating photo voltaic parl to be positioned north of Woodlands Waterfront Park, alongside the Straits of Johor.
Supported by the Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB), the 5 MegaWatt-peak (MWp) floating photo voltaic system will generate about 6,388 MWh of renewable power yearly, as soon as accomplished. This is equal to powering about 1,250 Four-room flats, with a discount in greenhouse fuel emissions of about 2,600 tonnes yearly, over the following 25 years and past.
Most large-scale floating PV methods are constructed on freshwater ponds, lakes or reservoirs. Sunseap’s newest is among the largest sea-based photovoltaic (PV) tasks. In land-scarce international locations like Singapore, the widespread use of PV methods is hindered by house constraints and restricted roof house. The profitable supply of this challenge is essential in opening up comparable alternatives for sea-based floating photovoltaic methods in Singapore and the area.
Sunseap has beforehand participated on this planet’s largest floating PV test-bed in Singapore at Tengeh Reservoir. Results to this point present that the floating PV methods carry out higher than typical rooftop photo voltaic PV methods in Singapore, as a result of cooler temperatures of the reservoir atmosphere.
The 5-hectare (equal to the scale of 5 soccer fields) OFPV pilot in Woodlands is predicted to be commercially operational early subsequent 12 months. This builds on Sunseap’s expertise with freshwater methods in reservoirs and is predicted to provide comparable advantages.
Sunseap Group is the main photo voltaic power system developer, proprietor and operator in Singapore. It operates by means of three key items: Sunseap Leasing, Sunseap International and Sunseap Energy. Sunseap Leasing is the primary and largest photo voltaic leasing firm in Singapore. Sunseap International targets markets within the South East Asian and Pacific areas. These embrace a 140 MegaWatt-peak (MWp) photo voltaic farm in India and a 10 MWp photo voltaic farm in Cambodia. Sunseap Energy gives clear power options utilising off-site preparations by drawing on photo voltaic methods throughout the Group’s portfolio of distributed technology property. A notable shopper is Apple, which just lately signed an settlement with Sunseap to acquire 100% of its native power necessities from renewable sources. (Source: Sunseap – Image: Strait of Johor)
