Total’s solar systems start powering Singapore LNG

Singapore LNG’s import terminal on Jurong Island will now get power from new solar systems following the completion of the project by a unit of France’s Total.

To remind, Singapore LNG said in September it had tapped Total Solar Distributed Generation to install the solar power systems on the rooftops of several buildings.

Total’s unit said in a statement on Thursday it has completed the project.

This solar power system will generate around 800 megawatt hours of renewable energy, equivalent to providing electricity to about 200 average households in Singapore for an entire year, according to the Total unit.

In addition, the system has the potential to reduce an estimated 300 tons of carbon dioxide emissions per year, which translates to an estimated 4,900 trees planted, it said.

Singapore’s first and only LNG terminal currently operates with four tanks for a total storage capacity of 800,000 cubic meters.

The facility features two jetties able to accommodate the world’s largest LNG tankers.

Moreover, the second jetty is able to receive and reload small LNG ships of up to 10,000 cubic meters in capacity.

The terminal also has a third jetty designed for 10,000-40,000 cbm LNG carriers but only with civil structure completed.
