This is Sunshine, a solar-powered boat serving visitors at our Sembcorp Tengeh Floating Solar Farm.
The boat is powered solely by solar energy and has only been charged once for its first use. It has ferried hundreds of visitors since it was commissioned in July 2021, including several local and foreign dignitaries.
It was built by our sustainability partner Lita Ocean, a leading shipping company in Singapore.
Like many other businesses who are working towards a sustainable future, Lita Ocean is also working towards reducing carbon emissions generated from their operations. Sembcorp Solar recently completed the installation of over 700 rooftop solar panels at their premises within 5 months and it has helped them save over 40% in electricity savings since.
Besides halving their monthly electricity consumption from the grid and obtaining substantial cost savings as a result, the 386kWp solar installation also helps Lita Ocean reduce their carbon emissions by 189tCO2 annually.
Our electricity bills have doubled due to recent events. Thanks to the speedy installation of the solar panels by Sembcorp, we expect to save close to $3,000 every month, while contributing to a cleaner environment. Sembcorp has been a dependable and committed sustainability partner for us.
