Launch of Energy Saving Solutions Services in Hitachi Semiconductor Singapore
Saves Cost, Saves Energy, Reduces CO2 emission
Singapore, 16 October 2007 --- Hitachi Asia Ltd. (Hitachi Asia) and Hitachi Semiconductor
Singapore Pte. Ltd. (HNS) officially launched today its Energy Saving Solutions project for HNS,
which will offer substantial cost and energy savings in ways that are environmentally-friendly. The
project will achieve 5% total energy reduction, or equivalent to 19.5% chilled water plant system
energy reduction, and reduce 5000 tonnes per year of carbon dioxide emissions.
Under the Shared Service contract, also known as Energy Savings Performance Contract (ESPC)
by Energy Service Company (ESCO), Hitachi Asia replaced four units of Lead-Lag configured
high-efficiency chillers of 1,300 refrigerant tonne each.
HNS enjoys new equipment usage at no investment cost because they use the energy savings to pay
the rental fee. In addition to energy saving equipment, design and installation, the rental fee also
includes periodical maintenance, monitoring measurement and verification of energy savings level
by Hitachi Asia.
ESCO is a business that develops, installs, and finances projects designed to improve the energy
efficiency and maintenance costs for facilities over a period.
Said Sotoju Asai, Managing Director of Hitachi Semiconductor Singapore Pte. Ltd., “This Energy
Saving Solutions project offers substantial energy savings. Additionally, HNS is strongly
committed to continuously contributing to global environmental improvements. We are very proud
to be associated with Hitachi Asia’s Energy Saving Solutions.”
