Sembcorp to install 8.2 MW of solar for Singapore Airlines

Singapore-based energy group Sembcorp Industries Ltd (SGX:U96) on Wednesday announced a deal to install rooftop solar systems with a total capacity of 8.2 MWp for Singapore Airlines (SGX:C6L) and its subsidiary SIA Engineering Company (SGX:S59).

As part of the deal, Sembcorp Solar will construct, own and operate more than 20,000 solar panels at Singapore Airlines’ Airline House, SIA Training Centre, TechSQ, five of SIA Engineering’s hangars and its engine test facility.

Once operational, which is expected to take place in June, the rooftop arrays will generate more than 10.2 GWh of power a year in total. This represents the biggest solar power project for the aviation industry in the country, according to the statement.

Singapore Airlines and SIA Engineering will buy the electricity produced by the facilities under power purchase agreements (PPA), with the excess power generated by the systems to be fed into the grids of Singapore and Changi Airport Group.

The project is part of the Singapore Airlines group’s efforts to lower its carbon footprint.
