Minister Desmond Lee presenting certificates of appreciation to the building owners of the five new buildings that will be joining the world’s largest underground district cooling network – CDL, IOI Properties, Marina Bay Sands Singapore, NS Square, and Perennial Holding.
SP Group (SP) will be expanding its Marina Bay District Cooling Network with the addition of five upcoming developments – 8 Shenton Way (formerly AXA Tower), the commercial component of 80 Anson Road (formerly Fuji Xerox Towers), IOI Central Boulevard Towers, Marina Bay Sands Integrated Resort Expansion and NS Square.
The expanded Marina Bay District Cooling network
The addition of the five developments will further expand the world’s largest underground district cooling network, bringing the total number of buildings served by SP’s Marina Bay operations to 28. SP’s sustainable cooling solution will help the Marina Bay district reduce its carbon emissions by 19,439 tonnes annually while providing the same cool comfort. This is equivalent to removing 17,672 cars off our roads.
At an appreciation event held earlier today which marked the expansion of the Marina Bay District Cooling network, Mr Desmond Lee, Minister for National Development and Minister-in-charge of Social Services Integration, presented certificates of appreciation to the building owners of the five buildings – City Developments Limited (CDL), IOI Properties, Marina Bay Sands Singapore, NS Square, and Perennial Holdings – affirming their commitment to the sustainable development of our city centre.
In addition to the Marina Bay district cooling network, SP is also collaborating with the Housing and Development Board (HDB) to deploy Singapore’s first residential centralised cooling system for up to 22,000 households at the upcoming Tengah housing estate by 2023. SP will also be developing Singapore’s first brownfield, sustainable cooling solution for a town centre at Tampines. When completed, SP will be operating a total 118,500 RTs of cooling capacity through its district cooling networks, extending its lead as the biggest provider of district cooling solutions in Singapore.
Following the appreciation event, we took Minister Desmond Lee’s (centre) Lee and our new partners on a “below the scenes” tour of our District Cooling Plant at Level B5 of Marina Bay Sands.
