“Cooling is a major source of energy consumption in tropical countries like Singapore and will be a key factor in deciding whether nations meet their environmental obligations,” said Pierre Cheyron, CEO, ENGIE South East Asia.

ENGIE has been selected by the Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT) to construct the district cooling system (DCS) for its new campus at Punggol Digital District.


Being the first DCS plant in Singapore to meet the latest green mark platinum requirements, plant efficiency is an important factor in the design. In March 2019, ENGIE was selected by SIT and JTC Corporation (JTC) to design the 30,000 refrigeration ton (RT)1 Punggol Digital District DCS network which will serve SIT and JTC’s development as well as the community facilities.

Punggol Digital District is the first district in Singapore to adopt a single integrated masterplan approach that brings together a business park, a university and community facilities. SIT’s new campus, which will start operations by 2023, will gather students, faculty and industry professionals in one physical location to facilitate collaboration.

“As a leader in district cooling – a promising technology to help cities meet their cooling needs – ENGIE is excited to have the opportunity to collaborate with SIT to reduce Singapore’s carbon footprint.” SIT’s selection of ENGIE to build the DCS for its new campus lays another milestone for the company, as it continues to boost South East Asia’s energy efficiency through its expertise in district cooling and other sustainable technologies.

A ton of refrigeration, also called a refrigeration ton, is a unit of power used in some countries to describe the heat-extraction capacity of refrigeration and air conditioning equipment. A refrigeration ton is approximately equivalent to 12,000 BTU/h or 3.5 kW.
