The Sembcorp Tengeh Floating Solar Farm, Singapore

Sembcorp Floating Solar Singapore, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Sembcorp Industries, and National Water Agency PUB, officially opened the Sembcorp Tengeh Floating Solar Farm at the Tengeh Reservoir on July 14, 2021. With 122,000 solar panels spanning across 45 hectares (equivalent to about 45 football fields), the 60 megawatt-peak (MWp) solar photovoltaic (PV) farm is one of the world’s largest inland floating solar PV systems.

The electricity generated from the solar farm will be sufficient to power Singapore’s five local water treatment plants, offsetting about 7% of PUB’s annual energy needs and reducing PUB’s carbon footprint. This is equivalent to powering about 16,000 four-room HDB flats and reducing carbon emissions by about 32 kilotonnes annually, the same as taking 7,000 cars off the roads.

The launch ceremony was officiated by Guest of Honour, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong; Minister for Sustainability and the Environment, Ms Grace Fu; Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Sustainability and the Environment, Mr Albert Chua; together with Chairman of Sembcorp Industries, Mr Ang Kong Hua; Chairman of PUB, Mr Chiang Chie Foo; Group President & CEO of Sembcorp Industries, Mr Wong Kim Yin; and Chief Executive of PUB, Mr Ng Joo Hee.
