Floating solar construction to start off Singapore

first_imgOne of the world’s first and largest sea water floating solar systems is set for completion later this year in Singapore. Sunseap From 10 September to 31 December, installation of a floating solar farm west of Senoko Fishery Port will take place. Posted: about 1 month ago Categories: Supported by the Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB), the 5 MegaWatt-peak (MWp) floating solar system should generate about 6,388 MWh of renewable energy annually, once completed. The company behind the project is Sunseap Group, Southeast Asia’s leading sustainable energy provider. A finalised scale model consisting of about 50 units then underwent hydrodynamic testing in a wave tank. Tests included for corrosion, movement of waves and biofouling (growth of barnacles and algae). It could also reduce greenhouse gas emissions of about 2,600 tonnes every year, over the next 25 years and beyond. Posted: about 1 month ago Business developments & projects For the purpose of this project, a crane barge will install mooring sinkers on the seabed. After this, setup of the floating support platforms will take place, followed by fitment of the solar panels. HDB and the National University of Singapore also collaborated on testing for the system. HDB and NUS took care of the design for the Sunseap’s solar farm floater module. HDB collaborated with ISO Landscape to study, develop and test a floating solar system specifically for marine conditions. This is equivalent to powering about 1,250 4-room flats. The floater system, designed to withstand waves and ship wakes, was first used at Tengeh floating solar farm. PUB and Sembcorp start floating solar PV system construction in Singapore Announced in 2018, the company is developing one of the world’s largest offshore floating photovoltaic systems to be located north of Woodlands Waterfront Park, along the Straits of Johor.last_img read more

Newcomers Northamptonshire take the lead

first_img25 Aug 2015 Newcomers Northamptonshire take the lead Northamptonshire marked their first appearance at the Boys’ County Championship final by taking the day one lead with a hard-fought 5-4 win over Hampshire at King’s Lynn Golf Club.In the day’s other match, Wiltshire clawed their way back from 3-0 down at lunch to halve with Durham.It was a day for fightbacks, with Northamptonshire overcoming a 2-1 deficit after the foursomes, by winning four of the six singles to claim the point.Northamptonshire had managed to keep in touch in the foursomes when Callum Farr and Ben Jones (image © Leaderboard Photography), who trailed on the outward half, won their match on the 18th. “That was massively important,” said team manager Adam Myers.In the afternoon, both boys went on to win their singles, as did Matthew Myers, leaving the way clear for Tom Forster to clinch the team’s overall win.He was taken to the 18th by Jason Sundborg – who recently reached the quarter finals of the Boys’ Amateur Championship – but held his nerve to hole a 10-footer on the last and hang on to his one-up advantage. “I’m very proud of them all,” said Myers.Wiltshire staged a remarkable comeback to snatch a halved match, after they lost all three morning foursomes.“We just didn’t get going at all this morning and Durham played some really good golf,” said Wiltshire team manager Ian Welding. “But this afternoon was a completely different story.“The boys came out determined to show they could play better and that they weren’t going to give the match away and they turned it round.”The tension mounted as the afternoon unfolded and Wiltshire had to battle to the end, with Charlie Dunn winning the 18th to halve his game against Durham’s Jack Ainscough; and Dom Burgess parring the last to keep his one-up advantage over Will Marshall.“It was very exciting and could have gone either way,” said Welding. “The boys did fantastically well to change it round and now they have so much more confidence and momentum.”Durham, who were runners-up in last year’s championship, were disappointed to let their lead slip away. But team captain Ken Joel said: “It was a great game and both teams played well and in a very good spirit. It was a pleasure to watch and to be involved in.”Tomorrow, Wiltshire will play Hampshire, while Northamptonshire take on Durham.Click here for full scoreslast_img read more
