Tampines Central to be powered by sustainable distributed district cooling

Minister Masagos Zulkifli witnessing the supply agreement signing ceremony with the first batch of building owners to join the distributed district cooling network – CapitaLand, CPF Board, Frasers Property, NTUC Income, OCBC Bank, and People’s Association.

Tampines will be Singapore’s first town centre to be retrofitted with an interconnected, sustainable cooling solution designed by SP Group. 

Seven existing buildings across the town centre – Century Square, CPF Tampines Building, Income At Tampines Junction, OCBC Tampines Centre 2, Our Tampines Hub, Tampines Mall and Tampines One, will be retrofitted to plug into this novel distributed district cooling (DDC) network, which is specially engineered for brownfield developments to provide the same cooling comfort while saving energy and lowering carbon emissions at the same time. The network which will be completed and operational in the first half of 2025, will help Tampines reduce its carbon emissions by 1,359 tonnes annually, equivalent to removing 1,236 cars off our roads. It will also achieve energy savings of more than 2,800,000 kilowatt-hour (kWh) annually, which can power more than 905 three-room HDB households for a year.

Mr Masagos Zulkifli, Adviser to Tampines GROs, Minister for Social and Family Development, Second Minister for Health and Minister-in-charge of Muslim Affairs, witnessed the signing of the supply agreements between SP Group and the building owners – CapitaLand, CPF Board, Frasers Property, NTUC Income, OCBC Bank, and People’s Association. The signing ceremony was held in conjunction with the CleanEnviro Summit Singapore and the Singapore International Water Week organised by the National Environment Agency and PUB respectively.
