The plan is to build a floating solar PV system on Tengeh Reservoir.
National water agency PUB and Sembcorp Industries’ subsidiary Sembcorp Floating Solar Singapore, signed a 25-year power purchase agreement (PPA), according to an announcement.
The agreement is to build a 60 megawatt-peak (MWp) floating solar photovoltaic (PV) system on Tengeh Reservoir. The solar power generated is said to meet the energy needs for operations at PUB’s five local waterworks, including Marina Barrage.
This follows PUB's announcement in appointing Sembcorp to design, build, own, and operate the project.
Under the agreement, Sembcorp will deploy over 146,000 solar panels at Tengeh Reservoir in Tuas to generate energy and offset about 32 kilotonnes of carbon emissions annually. The panels would be installed on corrosion-resistant floats, utilising PV modules to maximise solar energy yield.
