21 March 2022 – Aurecon has been appointed by PUB, Singapore’s national water agency, to carry out preliminary engineering design and feasibility studies for the proposed 100MWp and 44MWp 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 materials, providing tender support, reviewing relevant engineering calculations, drawings and submissions as well as providing professional advice and support throughout the project construction.

Aurecon’s Managing Director for Singapore, Yang San (YS) Go said, “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.”

“We are delighted to be appointed as the consultant for PUB’s two large-scale floating PV projects. 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. We look forward to contributing to Singapore’s efforts in achieving its solar energy deployment target of 2GWp by 2030, about three per cent of Singapore’s 2030 projected electricity demand,” said Stephane Asselin, Chief Executive, Aurecon Asia.

As a market leader in the renewable energy field, Aurecon has played an integral role in delivering innovative and groundbreaking solar power projects globally. These include bringing to life the largest solar power plant in Southeast Asia – the Dau Tieng 1 and 2 PV Solar Power Plant in Vietnam in under a year to help meet increasing electricity demands of two nearby cities.
