Sembcorp to develop rooftop solar energy systems at two ST Aerospace facilities

SEMBCORP Industries (Sembcorp) announced that it will be developing two grid-tied rooftop solar energy systems to supply renewable power directly to ST Aerospace facilities in Changi and Seletar.

The project is expected to cost approximately S$5.4 million, and will be funded internally.

Construction for these systems will begin this month, and is targeted to be completed by February 2018 and April 2018 for its Changi and Seletar facilities respectively, Sembcorp said.

With a combined capacity of 4.1 MW, both photovoltaic systems will be built, owned, operated and maintained by Sembcorp, it added.

Market voices on:

"With Sembcorp's new photovoltaic systems, ST Aerospace's facilities will be powered by renewables and will reduce their carbon footprint," Neil McGregor, group president and CEO of Sembcorp, said.

"This project strengthens our track record in solar power for the aerospace and aviation industry. It also adds to our renewable energy portfolio and demonstrates Sembcorp's commitment to greener energy for Singapore, as we progress towards an open electricity market."

The announcement comes on the back of similar solar energy projects by Sembcorp at two airfreight terminals at Singapore's Changi Airport, as well as at the premises of Asia Pacific Breweries Singapore and Stolthaven Singapore.
