Singapore buildings

Sembcorp Industries has opened its second state-of-the-art cogeneration plant in Singapore as well as a new technology and innovation centre.

The $635m Banyan gas-fired cogeneration facility is located on Jurong Island and has a gross capacity of 400 MW of power and 200 tonnes per hour of process steam.
The plant, which commenced commercial operations at the beginning of October, generates electricity for the grid and steam for industrial companies on Jurong Island.

The plant increases Sembcorp’s combined gross power generating capacity in Singapore by 50% to 1,215 MW and enhances the flexibility and reliability of the company’s power and steam supply.

Located across from the cogeneration plant is the brand-new Sembcorp Technology & Innovation Centre. Comprising laboratories and applied research and development (R&D) facilities, the centre houses Sembcorp researchers and engineers who develop and integrate innovative processes as well as run test-beds for emerging technologies.
