Keppel DHCS, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Keppel Infrastructure Holdings, has won a contract worth $300 million by JTC on Oct 28.
Under the contract, Keppel DHCS will build, own and operate a new district cooling system (DCS) plant for 30 years in the upcoming Bulim Phase 1 of the Jurong Innovation District (JID).
The contract comes on the back of the award of the design phase to Keppel DHCS, which was announced in September 2018.
The new DCS plant is expected to be completed in 2022. It has the ability to serve up to 14,000 refrigeration tons (RT) and provide a high quality and reliable chilled water supply service to the developments in Bulim Phase 1.
Bulim is one of the five precincts in JID, which is a one-stop advanced manufacturing hub.
In Singapore, Keppel DHCS currently provides environmentally-friendly DCS services to Changi Business Park, one-north (Biopolis, Fusionopolis, Mediapolis) and Woodlands Wafer Fab Park.
