Singapore LNG Corporation Pte Ltd (SLNG) and Total Solar Distributed Generation (DG) have signed an settlement for solar energy to be applied on the Singapore LNG Terminal on Jurong Island. Under the settlement, Total Solar DG will finance, construct and function a 600 kilowatts peak (kWp) rooftop solar energy system, which will likely be put in on the rooftops of a number of buildings on the Terminal.
The set up of the photo voltaic panels is a part of SLNG’s slew of initiatives below its Green Strategy, and is predicted to be accomplished by This autumn 2020. This rooftop solar energy system will generate round 800 megawatt hours (MWh) of renewable vitality and has the potential to keep away from an estimated 300 tons of carbon dioxide emissions, yearly. For comparability, the common month-to-month family electrical energy consumption of a four-room public housing in Singapore is round 354 kilowatt hours (KWh); and it takes an estimated four,900 bushes to sequester 300 tons of carbon dioxide.
Mr Tan Soo Koong, CEO of SLNG, mentioned, “SLNG is dedicated to doing its half to assist combat local weather change and promote environmental sustainability; and the usage of photo voltaic vitality at our Terminal is only a modest first step. We are additionally actively exploring methods to catalyse the usage of LNG and different inexperienced vitality options. For one, we’re trying into collaborations to develop new infrastructure in Singapore to advertise the usage of LNG as a cleaner marine gasoline. For one other, we’re working with varied companions to develop applied sciences associated to the importation, transportation and storage of hydrogen.”
“Total Solar DG places Health, Safety and Environment first. Our initiatives are constructed and operated with best-in-class methods and processes. We are proud to be trusted by SLNG to implement such a prestigious undertaking. Total Solar DG has distinctive expertise delivering photo voltaic for advanced, high-risk environments. This comes from Total Group’s 100-year expertise working vitality property internationally. We are happy to be SLNG’s associate of alternative, to assist minimize prices and carbon emissions, with out compromising on security,” mentioned Mr Gavin Adda, CEO of Total Solar DG Southeast Asia.
