Total supplies solar to Singapore LNG terminal

Total has started providing solar power to the Singapore LNG terminal, which is operated by Singapore LNG Corp (SLNG), the French major said on April 29.

The 600-kW photovoltaic system is mounted onto the roofs of the terminal's buildings and is expected to produce 800 MWh/year of power, which is the equivalent of the electricity needs of around 200 households in Singapore, Total said. The system has the potential to avoid 300 metric tons/year of CO2 emissions.

The project is operated by Total Solar Distributed Generation (DG), a unit of Total. SLNG and Total Solar DG had signed the deal in September last year. The terminal on Jurong Island is capable of importing 6mn mt/yr of LNG.
