Sembcorp Industries (Sembcorp) has commenced commercial operations of its new USD 123M multi-utilities centre located in Jurong Island’s Banyan district. With this new facility, Sembcorp now offers a comprehensive range of energy, water and on-site logistics. These include process steam, power, industrial wastewater treatment, industrial waters and service corridor services.
The new Banyan multi-utilities centre is Sembcorp’s second such facility on Jurong Island, replicating its first multi-utilities centre that has served companies in the island’s established Sakra and Seraya areas for over a decade. With the Banyan and Sakra multi-utilities facilities in operation, Sembcorp is now well placed to provide its utilities services to the entire Jurong Island.
The company has already secured a number of customers located in the island’s new growth area, including Jurong Aromatics Corporation, LANXESS, Evonik Industries, Asahi-Kasei and Zeon. It is also building a new 400MW gas-fired cogeneration plant nearby, set to come on stream next year. In total, Sembcorp’s assets in operation and in development on Jurong Island amount to around S$3 billion in investment.
