WELCOME
Floating Photovoltaic System on Kranji Reservoir

This website provides an overview of the proposed Floating Photovoltaic (FPV) System on Kranji Reservoir, information on the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) and how the public can provide comments on the EIA.

Project Overview

The Project is to deploy an approximately 112.5 MWac (or 141 MWp)[1] (+/- 10%) FPV System, and will contribute to 7.1% of Singapore’s target of achieving 2 GWp (2,000 MWp) of solar generation by 2030.

The Project is to be located in the north and central areas of the Kranji Reservoir, connected to an integrated Project Substation within the existing Sungei Kadut Industrial Estate on the Kranji Reservoir’s eastern shoreline.

The Project will be a fully operational FPV system, consisting of an in-reservoir FPV system (including PV panels, mounting systems, power conversion units, mooring and anchoring systems and connector cables), an operational and maintenance (O&M) berthing facility for the Project’s work boats; and an onshore power grid connection via connector cables and an integrated Project Substation, as well as associated O&M facilities.

NOTE [1]:

MWp (or MWdc) is a measure of the Direct Current (DC) output of PV panels. MWac is a measure of the power output from PV panels after its DC output has been converted to Alternating Current (AC). This conversion is necessary as Singapore power grid and most of Singapore’s equipment/ systems/ appliances run on AC.

Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA)

An assessment of the potential environmental impacts associated with the construction and operation of the Project was documented in the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) report. The EIA was prepared for Malkoha Pte Ltd (referred to as the Project Proponent or Renewable Energy User) by Environmental Resources Management (S) Pte Ltd (ERM). The EIA is currently under review and approval by the Government. Upon approval of the EIA, the Project Proponent will select and appoint a Developer/ Owner who will own, design, install, operate and maintain the FPV System on Kranji Reservoir.

Nature Groups were engaged at various stages of the EIA process to: discuss the approaches to surveys of the existing environmental conditions, including birds; the outcomes of the impact assessments; and mitigation and monitoring recommendations.

The environmental assessment study concluded that the environmental impact can be adequately managed with mitigation measures, as well as a comprehensive Environmental Monitoring and Management Plan (EMMP) to validate the assessed impacts, review monitoring data trends and allow adaptive management to take place throughout the construction and operation of the Project.

The public feedback period has closed. Public feedback was sought from 7 June 2024 to 5 July 2024. For more information, please contact us via email at kranji_eia@erm.com.
