SINGAPORE: Danfoss has unveiled Asia Pacific’s first sustainability technology centre (STC) in Singapore.

Located in the Nordic European Center at the International Business Park, the STC will serve as a gateway to introducing world-class decarbonisation solutions and training programmes to businesses in Asia Pacific, accelerating the adoption of green technologies in the region.

The STC will showcase live demonstrations of Danfoss’ global decarbonisation solutions, where visitors get to witness groundbreaking technologies that underpin some of Singapore’s key sustainability projects. This includes the Electric Dream Ferry and Keppel Bay Tower, Singapore’s first BCA Green Mark Platinum Zero Energy commercial building. 

It also showcases the ProjectZero model, a carbon-neutral blueprint from Sønderborg, Denmark, that has been adapted by the Singapore Polytechnic to help achieve campus-wide carbon neutrality, in line with the nation’s Green Plan 2030 goals.

Apart from showcasing Danfoss’ novel marine electrification solutions, the STC will double up as a training, pre-testing and commissioning ground for future adopters.

The STC is an expansion from the previous Green Building Training Centre, that was launched in 2020, and the Marine Electrification Application Development Centre which was previously housed in the Danfoss Singapore office.
