Phoenix Solar Pte Ltd consolidates position in Singapore with another MW-scale solar rooftop project [Press Release]
Singapore 29 May 2014 / Phoenix Solar Pte Ltd (“Phoenix Solar”) has signed a contract with Katoen Natie Singapore (Jurong) Pte Ltd (“KNS”) for the construction of a rooftop solar PV system on Jurong Island, Singapore with a capacity of 1.188MWp.
KNS is a subsidiary of the Belgium headquartered global supplier of logistics and distribution services Katoen Natie. They are not new to solar energy. Katoen Natie owns Belgium’s largest rooftop PV system – a 24.1MWp power plant located at the Loghidden City terminal, Antwerp. The currently installed capacity of rooftop PV at Katoen Natie premises totals approx. 48 MWp. With this new installation in Singapore, they are extending their green energy portfolio to Asia.
The PV system will be installed on one of KNS’s warehouses located at Jurong island. Upon completion 4,752 REC crystalline solar modules and 51 SMA string inverters will generate approximately 1,500 megawatt hours of solar electricity per year. This will mitigate around 750 metric tonnes of CO2 per year from gas-fired power plants.
“We saw in Phoenix Solar an excellent partner for this project. As an international EPC with a solid base in Asia, they were able to offer, strong technical know-how, local regulatory expertise and high quality components – like REC modules and SMA inverters – to maximise the returns on our PV investment ”said Koen Cardon, Chief Executive Officer of KNS.
With over 80MW of projects in the region, including Singapore’s largest PV installation at Sheng Siong’s HQ in Mandai, and the recently commissioned 707kWp PV system at Singapore’s Sports Hub, Phoenix Solar is a recognised installer of high quality investment grade PV solutions.
“Megawatt-scale rooftop PV systems are a great way for companies to stabilise their electricity expenses and save money. They offer very reliable investment returns with the added benefit of reducing carbon footprint,” said Christophe Inglin, Managing Director of Phoenix Solar Pte Ltd.
