November 23 (Renewables Now) - Singaporean solar developer and operator Sunseap Group Pte Ltd will install a 1.39-MWp rooftop solar array at the future Hyundai Motor Group Innovation Centre in Singapore (HMGICS).
Sunseap on Tuesday said it has signed a 20-year power purchase agreement (PPA) to provide solar energy to the seven-storey building, which will host Singapore’s first electric vehicle manufacturing facility.
The rooftop solar system will be capable of generating 1.76 GWh of power per a year, offsetting 1,247 tonnes of carbon emissions, the solar company estimates. Sunseap expects to complete the installation by July 2022.
South Korean carmaker Hyundai Motor Group launched construction of HMGICS in October last year. The innovation centre will be located in Jurong Innovation District. It will research and develop future mobility technologies and could also produce up to 30,000 vehicles per year by 2025.
