Delta has launched a containerized smart plant factory and its building automation solutions at Punggol Digital District (PDD), Singapore’s first smart business district planned by JTC – a statutory board under Singapore’s Ministry of Trade and Industry.
As one of four initial corporations joining the district, Delta integrated a broad range of energy-efficient industrial automation, thermal management and LED lighting systems to enable a 12-meter containerized smart plant factory capable of regularly producing vast amounts of pesticide-free vegetables with only a fraction of carbon and space footprint as well as less than 5% the water consumption of traditional farmland.
Speaking at the inaugural – PDD: Connecting Smartness event, Alvin Tan, Assistant Chief Executive Officer, Industry Cluster Group, JTC, said, “Delta’s activities in Punggol Digital District truly embody the district’s vision of test-bedding and nurturing next-generation talent in smart living innovations. We look forward to welcoming more collaborative partnerships in our district.”
Cecilia Ku, general manager of Delta Electronics Int’l (Singapore), said, “Delta is committed to enabling a sustainable future through conservation of precious resources such as energy and water, in line with our corporate mission, ‘To provide innovative, clean and energy-efficient solutions for a better tomorrow. As the world suffers from the scarcity of natural resources, Delta constantly innovates with smart green solutions that can foster sustainability in essential industries, such as manufacturing, buildings and agriculture. We are very excited to be partnering with JTC as well as international players, academia and trade associations to accelerate innovation in Singapore.”
Delta’s solutions further mankind’s resilience against environmental challenges, such as carbon emissions and water scarcity.
The event was held with the presence of Singapore’s Minister for Trade & Industry, Gan Kim Yong; Senior Minister and Coordinating Minister for National Security, Teo Chee Hean; and Senior Minister of State, Ministry of Communications and Information, and Ministry of Health, Janil Puthucheary.
