A breakthrough in Singapore’s district cooling industry
ENGIE will design an integrated district cooling network (30,000 RT, 105 MW) which will serve the Jurong Town Corporation (JTC), the Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT) and the community facilities. Punggol Digital District is the first district in Singapore to adopt a single integrated masterplan approach that brings together a business park, a university and community facilities.
ENGIE’s partnership with JTC and SIT is a significant breakthrough in Singapore’s district cooling system industry, with the energy company winning its milestone DCS project in Singapore. “Our partnerships with JTC and SIT to design the District Cooling System (DCS) plants for both organisations are in line with our Group’s direction to set up the Centre of Expertise for District Cooling in Singapore,” shared Yeo Kong Nee, Managing Director, ENGIE Services Singapore. “We are looking forward to future collaborations on DCS projects and to further contributing to Singapore’s DCS industry.”
Punggol Digital District will be the first district in Singapore to adopt a single integrated masterplan approach that brings together a business park, a university and community facilities. This is to create synergies, enable close integration between industry and academia, as well as foster vibrant and strong communities. At the forefront of Singapore’s Smart Nation push, the district will house key growth sectors of the digital economy such as cybersecurity and digital technology to create an ecosystem of open innovation.
