Sembcorp Opens Singapore’s First Solar Farm With An Integrated Rainwater Harvesting System
Sembcorp open Singapore’s first solar farm with an integrated rainwater harvesting system. The combined solar power of the Sembcorp Tuas Solar Farm is 17.6MWp. It is located on two sites. The solar farm, estimated to cover close to 10 hectares of vacant land, is modular and flexible. It uses mobile solar panels, hybrid SPPG substations and a mobile transformer. A total of 33,580 solar panels have been installed across both sites, providing renewable energy channelled to the grid. The system is expected to produce about 22,025-megawatt-hours of power annually, which is enough renewable energy to power about 4,681 four-room HDB flats for a year. This will also help to avoid over 8,900 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions a year, equivalent to planting close to 150,000 trees.
