Green Sponsorships and Community Engagement
Tuas Power has been a firm supporter of the Singapore International Energy Week (SIEW) since its launch in 2008. SIEW is an annual platform for energy professionals, policy makers and commentators to discuss energy issues, strategies and solutions.
The Company also supports youth and student projects with an environmental message to inspire Singaporeans to care for our living environment by adopting an environmentally-friendly lifestyle.
In conjunction with the launch of its new value-added service, the Lighting Solutions, Tuas Power sponsored S$100,000 worth of energy saving lighting solutions to help five charitable organisations – YMCA Singapore, Metta Welfare, Ren Ci Hospital, Moral Home for the Aged and Rainbow Centre – Margaret Drive School – reduce their overhead costs and enable them to put the much needed funds to better use.
In 2007, Tuas Power provided a $500,000 sponsorship-in-kind for the development of a combined power and cooling (CPC) system under an Energy Research Project at the Prototype Glasshouse managed by the National Parks Board. Under this project, the company supplied, installed and commissioned two 30kWe microturbines and a 20RT absorption chiller, which employs energy-saving technology. The project aims to develop and study the effects of air-conditioned space cooling and humidity control for the Prototype Glasshouse, which acts as an important research base to test horticultural techniques, building materials and energy systems that will eventually be implemented at the Conservatory Complex of Singapore’s Gardens by the Bay. This sponsorship represents not only Tuas Power’s contribution towards Singapore’s larger development plans but also forms an integral part of the continued efforts of the company toward energy efficiency and environmental sustainability.
