ENGIE Lab Singapore launches REIDS-SPORE site

The platform boasts the largest wind turbine in Singapore at 100kW.

ENGIE Lab Singapore has cut the ribbon on its REIDS-SPORE site at Semakau Landfill.

The Renewable Energy Integration Demonstrator – Singapore (REIDS) is a research, development, demonstration and deployment platform for industry collaborators, and gives a location for the design, demonstration and test of solutions for sustainable energy access-for-all in Southeast Asia, said ENGIE.

Started in 2015, REIDS is a programme by the Energy Research Institute at Nanyang Technological University.

Meanwhile, the REIDS-SPORE platform comprises a micro-grid that generates 550kW of electricity and features the largest wind turbine in Singapore at 100kW as well as a hydrogen full chain for electricity and mobility. With an electrical capacity of 50kW or 2MWh, the hydrogen full chain also has a hydrogen refuelling station with a fuel cell electrical vehicle for mobility, added ENGIE.

“Our REIDS-SPORE platform is a timely addition, as it provides an R&D test bed in tropical conditions and serves as a living lab, training platform for industry and professionals, and a public learning centre,” said ENGIE Lab Singapore’s managing director Loic Villocel. “The platform is also the first of many ENGIE R&D test bedding sites in Southeast Asia.”

The REIDS-SPORE site was inaugurated in the presence of His Excellency Marc Abensour, French ambassador to Singapore.
