Sunseap and Centurion Sign 20-Year Solar PPA

Centurion Corporation and Sunseap Group have signed a 20-year solar power purchase agreement for a workers dormitory in Singapore. Located at Jalan Papan and built by developer Centurion-Lian Beng (Papan) Pte Ltd, the dormitory, ASPRI-Westlite Papan, is a joint-venture between Centurion and Lian Beng Group.

The solar photovoltaic system to be installed by Sunseap will help the dormitory to reduce its carbon footprint by a third. Sunseap will construct and install a 170 kW peak solar system on the rooftop of the property.

The solar photovoltaic system is expected to be ready by the end of June this year. Once completed, it will generate about 220,000 kWh of energy annually and offset 30 percent of ASPRI-Westlite Papan’s peak energy usage. The property will reduce its carbon footprint by approximately 92 tons annually, equivalent to planting over 2,300 trees. In addition, the solar photovoltaic system will also lower the cost of operations by an estimated $200,000 over the next 20 years.

Frank Phuan, CEO and Executive Director at Sunseap Group, said, “We are heartened to see reputable companies like Centurion making a long-term commitment to adopt renewable energy solutions. We look forward to more companies coming onboard to support the cause to go green and mitigate the pressing issue of global warming.”

Kong Chee Min, Chief Executive Officer of Centurion Corporation, added, “We are pleased to collaborate with Sunseap Group to implement this initiative in one of our workers accommodations in Singapore. Going forward, we will continue to engage in business practices that support environmental sustainability.”

Sunseap is one of the biggest players in the solar energy industry in the region and its green solutions are fast gaining traction among companies and public institutions.
