Conergy, one of the region’s largest downstream solar companies, has designed and installed a 145 kWp solar power system for one of the most iconic landmarks in Singapore’s skyline, Marina Bay Sands, one of Asia’s leading destinations for business, leisure and entertainment.This marks the first commercial-scale rooftop installation for Conergy in Singapore, and the highest location in the country that the company has fitted panels on thus far, at 200m above sea level.
With solar panels lining the roofs of the iconic Sands SkyPark and covering an area of 880 sqm, Marina Bay Sands will be able to reduce carbon emissions by 70 tons every year. The 536 solar panels can generate 187 megawatt-hours of energy per year.
Key features of the Marina Bay Sands solar rooftop installation include Conergy PE 270 mono noir PV modules from JA Solar and roof-top racking solutions from Mounting Systems GmbH.
Conergy collaborated with Asiatic Engineering Pte Ltd for the local installation and construction of this rooftop system.
Alexander Lenz, Conergy CEO, said: “This project is a milestone for Conergy in Singapore, as it is our first commercial-scale rooftop installation in the country, as well as the highest at 200m above sea level. We are very pleased to work with Marina Bay Sands, a leader in sustainability within the hospitality industry, on this significant achievement for such an iconic landmark that is recognized the world over.”
Hendrik Bohne, Conergy’s VP for Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) adds, “We are delighted to work with Marina Bay Sandsand support their sustainability efforts while demonstrating that solar energy is a reliable and economically competitive resource. I am also very proud to share this accomplishment with the entire Conergy team who contributed in executing this project, generating a positive impact in Singapore.”
The integrated resort’s environmental sustainability efforts include a $25 million Intelligent Building Management System that automates lighting, heating and water supplies, a water conservation program utilizing rainwater harvesting and low-flow water taps, and the use of green materials during the property’s construction phase. Marina Bay Sands is also the first venue in Southeast Asia to attain the ISO 20121Sustainable Events Management certification, and the first integrated resort globally to benchmarkand certify its entire property through EarthCheck’s leading eco-benchmarking and certificationprogramme.
As one of the region’sleading solar companies, Conergy has a well-established sales network, extensive expert knowledge and a strong footprint in individual solar markets. A solar pioneer, Conergy has a special focus on emerging markets in Southeast Asia where it holds a leading position and banks on its excellent track record and execution experience.
