With sustainability at the core of their shared vision, Singapore Airlines (SIA) and SIA Engineering Company (SIAEC) have signed a power purchase agreement with Sembcorp Solar, a wholly owned subsidiary of Sembcorp Industries, to install and operate rooftop solar panels across their different premises.
When completed, this will be the largest combined solar power energy project for the aviation industry in Singapore. Here are some stand-out facts relating to the development, which is slated for completion in 2020.
Number of solar panels that will be installed across SIA and SIAEC buildings and offices
Total capacity of the solar panels that will be installed
Portion of SIA’s total building electricity demand to be met by the solar panels
Annual reduction in CO2 emissions resulting from the project, the equivalent of planting 52,000 new trees
Renewable energy expected to be produced annually – enough power to run 2,290 four-room HDB flats for a year
