SINGAPORE - A $15 million clean energy plant will partially power JTC Corporation's CleanTech One building located in its 50-ha CleanTech Park.

This is the result of a 50-50 joint venture - Sinjia RTE Solutions - announced earlier in March between locally-listed Sinjia Land and homegrown research and development firm Real Time Engineering (RTE).

The one-megawatt plant will start providing carbon-free electricity from hydrogen gas for CleanTech One's common areas by end July.

At maximum capacity, it can produce enough electricity to run about a thousand air-conditioning units at the same time.
