Total unit signs deal with Singapore LNG Corporation for solar energy system

A subsidiary of France’s Total and Singapore LNG Corporation (SLNG) have signed a deal for a rooftop solar power system at the Singapore liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal.

Total Solar Distributed Generation, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Total, will finance, build and operate the 600 kilowatts peak (kWp) system, which will be installed on the rooftops of several buildings in the terminal, they said. The terminal is owned and operated by SLNG. The installation of solar panels is expected to be completed by the fourth quarter of this year. Reportedly, the system will generate around 800 megawatt hours (MWh) of renewable energy and has the potential to avoid an estimated 300 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions a year.
