Viet Nam-Singapore Industrial Park (VSIP), Becamex IDC Corporation and Sembcorp Smart Energy Solutions Vietnam signed an agreement on Tuesday to set up a joint venture to introduce a new generation of sustainable smart energy solutions.

They will launch a new service platform offering Becamex- and Sembcorp-owned multi-energy services and efficiency tools.

Industrial tenants will be offered renewable energy from solar systems installed on their factories.

Leveraging the wide network of industrial properties owned by Becamex and Sembcorp, more than 1,000 tenants could potentially be operating on green power, thereby supporting their environmental sustainability goals.

There will also be substantial cost savings in switching to renewable energy.

The solar energy systems will be backed by a high-tech digital platform that is connected to Sembcorps Solar Performance Monitoring Centre housed in Singapore.

Using real-time tracking devices, this centralised system remotely monitors the output of every rooftop solar system installed at various sites, enhancing oversight and enabling maintenance and troubleshooting teams to be swiftly dispatched when needed.

A small-scale rooftop solar farm has been built at VSIPs administrative office in Binh Duong Province, and there are plans to instal more at other VSIP office buildings.

Nguyen Van Hung, chairman of Becamex and co-chairman of VSIP Group, said: “We want to ensure that VSIP and Becamexs integrated developments continue to drive investments for the long term. Environmentally friendly features that enhance the sustainability of the projects will help maximise their value to the economy and provide the communities around us with a cleaner environment. On that front, we are happy to collaborate with Sembcorp, to bring such sustainable energy solutions to Viet Nam and our properties.”

VSIP is one of the largest integrated townships ad industrial parks in Viet Nam.

Becamex is a leading name in the fields of development and construction of industrial parks, housing, urban areas, and transport infrastructure. — VNS
