Singapore preps SE Asia’s ‘largest public floating solar tender’

Published onJuly 17, 2019

The water authority of the city state wants to procure a 50 MW floating solar installation on the Tengeh Reservoir that will be operational by 2021. The Solar Energy Research Institute of Singapore (SERIS) had been using the Tengeh Reservoir as a test bed for floating solar installations since 2017, so when water authority the Public Utilities Board (PUB) sought an appropriate location for the state’s largest floating installation, Tengeh must have been an obvious choice. Details of a 50 MW installation described as “Southeast Asia’s largest public tender for floating PV” were revealed this morning by Norwegian technical consultancy DNV GL, which has been appointed technical advisor for the project.
