Sembcorp to build solar energy system to power Changi Exhibition Centre

The system is expected to produce over 7,840MW hours of power annually.

Sembcorp Industries (Sembcorp) has inked a long-term agreement with Experia Events to install, own and operate rooftop solar panels with a total capacity of 6.3MW peak, atop its flagship facility Changi Exhibition Centre (CEC), an announcement revealed.

Built on a 30 ha site, the CEC is a multi-dimensional facility that has hosted key aviation, sporting and lifestyle events in Singapore.

The rooftop solar energy system, comprising over 15,000 solar panels, will be built on top of the facility’s 40,000 sqm exhibition hall. It will help to power the onsite operations at CEC, and any surplus power generated from the system will be channeled to the grid.

Upon completion and installation of the solar energy system in November 2019, it is expected to produce over 7,840MW hours of power annually.

“This is enough renewable energy to power more than 1,750 four-room HDB flats for a year,” Sembcorp revealed, adding that the solar energy system will also help avoid over 3.2 million kilogrammes of carbon dioxide emissions a year, which is equivalent to the emissions avoided from taking around 715 cars off the road, or planting over 39,000 trees.
