Union Gas Holdings has entered into a collaboration with Surbana Jurong Group to study and evaluate the potential redevelopment of an existing fuel station located at 50 Old Toh Tuck Road into Singapore’s first multi‐fuels and energy facility.

The lease for the fuel station, which is owned by Union Gas under its “Cnergy” brand, will be up for expiry in 2023. Union Gas is exploring the feasibility of redeveloping the station into an “innovative, adaptable and sustainable multi‐fuels and energy facility” aimed at catering to Singapore’s evolving energy requirements.

The company has entered into a consultancy services agreement with Surbana Jurong Infrastructure (SJI), with SJI appointed as an exclusive Project Development Partner for the proposed facility.

Surbana Jurong and Union Gas will work jointly on a business plan and model to assess the feasibility of adding various sustainable energy delivery and storage methods and solutions to the. This may include renewable solar and micro‐wind energy solutions, battery storage systems and electric vehicles charging stations, and a natural gas‐based power generation station.

The parties will also explore the feasibility of hosting alternative low carbon initiatives such as on‐site production of hydrogen fuel through electrolysis and the corresponding dispensation of hydrogen fuel into hydrogen cell vehicles. The proposed facility is also expected to be self‐powered by solar and/or wind energy.
