SINGAPORE’S SUNSEAP SIGNS LONG-TERM SOLAR AGREEMENT WITH AMAZON
Sunseap Group, Singapore’s leading solar energy provider, has signed a long-term agreement with Amazon to export 62 megawatts (MWp) of clean energy to the national grid, that will help Amazon meet its sustainability goals.
Sunseap was awarded one of the two contracts under JTC’s SolarLand Phase 3 tender last year, part of JTC’s efforts to make industrial estates more environmentally friendly. As part of the contract, Sunseap will install the solar systems on an estimated 40 hectares of temporary vacant land across Singapore. Unlike conventional fixed designs, these systems are designed to be modular and flexible, and can be redeployed when the land is needed for other uses. When completed in 2022, they will be the largest aggregated mobile solar systems designed and installed in Singapore.
The 62MWp generated from the solar systems will amount to 80GWh of clean energy annually. 100% of the renewable energy generated by the plant will be supplied to Amazon, helping Amazon meet its commitment to achieve 100% renewable energy by 2030, a goal they are on path to reach by 2025.
Mr Lawrence Wu, Co-founder and President of Sunseap Group said: “We are delighted to be collaborating with Amazon on a project of this scale and to help the company reach a laudable goal of powering its operations with 100% renewable energy. Amazon has set a pace in sustainability that we believe many MNCs should follow. We are proud to partner JTC on SolarLand Phase 3 which allows us to contribute to JTC’s efforts to solarise temporary vacant industrial land across Singapore.”
“Sunseap has been a leader in rooftop installations and we are grateful for this opportunity to prove that we are equally adept at installing ground-mount systems.”
Sunseap is one of the largest and most established players in the solar energy industry in the region, with a pipeline of projects in Singapore, Australia, Vietnam, China, Taiwan and Cambodia.
Sunseap Group is the leading solar energy system developer, owner and operator in Singapore, with almost 300 MegaWatt-peak (MWp) of solar energy projects contracted, of which 168 MWp have been completed on more than 1,500 buildings in Singapore including public housing estates, as well as commercial and industrial buildings. It operates through five key units: Sunseap Leasing, Sunseap International, Sunseap Energy, Sunseap Engineering and Sunseap Solutions.
