The commissioning of a new energy system for a marine industry service provider client recently in Loyang Industrial Estate, Singapore, is being announced by Cleantech Solar, a top supplier of renewable energy solutions to businesses in Southeast Asia and India. The system includes a 300 kWp solar photovoltaic (PV), Battery Energy Storage System (BESS), and Electric Vehicle Charging System (EVCS). This is Cleantech Solar’s first trial 3-in-1 project integrating an ESS and EV Charging System with solar PV, where the developer handles full turnkey financing, design, building, operation, and maintenance of the PV + BESS + EVCS under a long-term PPA (PPA).
Cleantech Solar put up a meteorological station at the site in advance of the project to track weather patterns there and in comparison to other Cleantech Solar assets in Singapore. This allowed the organization to gather irradiance fluctuations for a more precise modeling of this project. This included data from scattered stations across 37 gas stations in Singapore and various C&I clients.
For the asset’s lifetime, the solar PV system is anticipated to provide more than 9 GWh of clean energy, resulting in a reduction of more than 3,800 tonnes of CO2 emissions. By lowering their carbon footprint and eventually attaining climate-neutral operations by 2040, the client’s clean solar energy will support their company vision, which focuses on sustainability and a clean planet.
A 19 kWh battery energy storage system based on lithium-ion phosphate technology has also been installed by Cleantech Solar. By storing energy during times of surplus PV generation and releasing energy during times of high electricity usage, the BESS will support the solar system. This will enable Cleantech Solar to arbitrage at advantageous times of the day and conduct further research on the local Singapore market power rates.
Additionally, Cleantech Solar prepared this system for EV chargers by installing all the required EV charging station peripherals, accommodating three 22kW EV chargers for the client’s anticipated EV fleet.
