SP Group (SP) inked an agreement with Sembcorp Marine to expand its Tuas Boulevard Shipyard (TBY) rooftop solar capacity to 8.5 MWp (Megawatt-peak). In this agreement, SP will deploy 4.0 MWp of solar energy across seven rooftops at the yard. The generation, usage, and storage of solar energy will be managed and optimised by our Green Energy Tech (GETTM) smart energy management system that incorporates Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (A.I.), sensors and advanced metering infrastructure to realise significant energy savings.

President & CEO of Sembcorp Marine, Mr Wong Weng Sun (L) with the Group CEO of SP Group, Mr Stanley Huang at the signing ceremony of the new agreement.

This new agreement is an extension of both companies’ successful partnership from 2017 where both companies partnered to develop and implement a digital energy solution, with the installation of an initial 4.5 MWp of rooftop solar panels at TBY’s steel fabrication facility.

Collectively, this will provide close to 60% of electricity consumed at the yard’s steel fabrication facility, equivalent to powering more than 2,300 four-room flats for a year. It also reduces annual carbon emissions by more than 4,200 tonnes, equivalent to taking approximately 1,300 cars off the road.
