PUB calls tender for floating solar panel project at Pandan Reservoir

  • PUB calls tender for floating solar panel project at Pandan Reservoir

About the entity

PUB Singapore's National Water Agency
PUB is a statutory board under the Ministry of the Environment and Water Resources. It is the national water agency that manages Singapore’s water supply, water catchment and used water in an integrated way.


PUB, Singapore’s National Water Agency has launched a tender for the development of a 55 megawatt-peak (MWp) floating solar photovoltaic (FPV) system at Pandan Reservoir. It will be PUB’s second large-scale FPV project, following the first one at Tengeh Reservoir in 2021, which has a capacity of 60MWp.

This project will see the installation of floating solar panels on the reservoir’s surface, while ensuring there continues to be adequate space for recreational water activities. The floating solar PV system will cover 22% of the reservoir space. PUB will work with the appointed developer to ensure the water quality of the reservoir is maintained and will do so through continuous water quality monitoring. (Please refer to Annex for the conceptual layout of the FPV system at Pandan Reservoir).

Scheduled to be completed in 2028, the floating solar system at Pandan Reservoir will generate enough solar energy to power the equivalent of 16,000 four-room HDB flats. The FPV will help to reduce carbon emissions by about 27 kilotonnes annually, similar to taking 5,800 cars off the road.

The tender will involve engineering, procurement, construction, operation and maintenance of the FPV system. It was launched on 7 June and will close on 26 September 2024.
