Singapore photovoltaics (PV) manufacturer Sunseap Enterprises Pte Ltd will build a 10-MWp solar farm at the Jurong port, local media reported today.
The company will partner with local sector player Solar PV Exchange Pte Ltd for the scheme. The installation will require a total investment of some SGD 30 million (USD 22.6m/EUR 19.5m).
The solar park will generate enough electricity to power 2,800 local four-room flats annually. Its output will be used to power the port, while the excess electricity will be fed to the national grid.
The company is expected to kick of construction works at the site next month. Upon its completion, scheduled for December 2015, the PV plant will become the biggest port-based solar plant worldwide, according to the reports.
Sunseap’s solar operations include the manufacturing of panels and the development and construction of grid-connected and stand-alone PV arrays.
