Aurecon has been appointed by PUB, Singapore’s national water agency, to carry out preliminary engineering design and feasibility studies for the proposed 100-MWp and 44-MWp large-scale floating solar photovoltaic (PV) systems at Lower Seletar Reservoir and Pandan Reservoir respectively.
The contract entails conducting a preliminary engineering feasibility study and a business model analysis to recommend suitable business models for PUB’s adoption. PUB will also be conducting environmental studies for deployment at Lower Seletar Reservoir.
Should the studies show that it is feasible to proceed, the contract also calls for preparing prequalification documentation and request for proposal (RFP) materials, providing tender support, reviewing relevant engineering calculations, drawings and submissions as well as providing professional advice and support throughout the project construction.
“We are privileged to have this opportunity to collaborate with PUB and to support them in their sustainability journey. Our team looks forward to providing innovative and high-value technical and advisory solutions to shape what is set to be an iconic engineering feat in Singapore’s water story,” said Yang San (YS) Go, Aurecon’s managing director for Singapore.
“This contract attests to Aurecon’s proven capabilities and deep expertise in the renewable energy field, and reaffirms our commitment to support our clients in building a greener future,” added Stephane Asselin, Aurecon’s chief executive for Asia. “We look forward to contributing to Singapore’s efforts in achieving its solar energy deployment target of 2 GWp by 2030, about 3% of Singapore’s 2030 projected electricity demand.”
As a market leader in the renewable energy field, Aurecon has been involved in delivering major solar projects globally. Among them include the Dau Tieng 1 and 2 PV Solar Power Plant in Vietnam – the largest solar power plant in Southeast Asia – to help meet increasing electricity demands of two nearby cities.
