Tour to Solar Cooling Facility in Singapore

What your Data Center can learn from the World's Largest Solar Cooling Facility outside the US
  • Data centers in ASEAN countries have been using electrical chillers (DX, chilled water) for decades. We will tour a green & sustainable facility in Singapore, which already installs & operates cooling system using solar heat. Again "SOLAR HEAT", not PhotoVoltaic (PV). The facility has significantly cuts the usage of electricity and boost its image as a sustainable organization. This SG facility is the largest solar cooling in the world, outside the US. So you are so lucky for being able to see this facility in Singapore and without travelling to other continent. What you need is BMW (Bus, Mrt, and Walk), as the facility is reachable by public transport. For people who doubts solar cooling will ever be feasible in ASEAN countries, please RSVP & come. Seeing is believing. How does it work? We'll listen directly from the expert that installed & now operates this facility.

  • The tour will involve a bit walks outdoor, as well as non-air cond environment. We'll have short presentation to explain the technology so pls come on time. You can wear T-shirt and sport shoes, as we will walk under the sun.
