Repurpose our core
Shell will repurpose its core by building on its strengths of an integrated business in Singapore.
Today, our extensive presence in Singapore’s energy sector carries with it a carbon footprint. Our businesses in Singapore must evolve and transform, and we must act now if we are to achieve our ambition to thrive through the energy transition.
Pivoting towards low-carbon value chains and greater digitalisation
Taking decisive steps towards our ambition to be a net-zero emissions energy business by 2050, our Shell Energy and Chemicals Park Singapore on Bukom has halved its crude processing capacity and production of traditional fuels in Singapore. We are also investing in circular chemicals production while studying a biofuel investment, and building a regional carbon capture and storage hub.
Digitalisation in our sites will transform the way we operate by improving efficiency and safety. Continuing our move towards Industry 4.0, a “Digital twin” of the manufacturing site on Bukom was piloted in 2020 and on Jurong Island in 2022. When fully integrated, it will be a complete virtual representation of the physical elements on site, making it safer, more competitive and innovative.
The Digital Twin also enhances efficiency and plant intelligence. Live information of plant operations can be fed to engineers in real-time via augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR). It is a shift towards a data-centric way of working and builds on our digital capabilities and culture.
Harnessing the Sun at our sites
We are looking to expand our solar footprint, including the study of a large-scale solar farm on Pulau Semakau. This builds on the more than 4MWp we have already built at our Pandan distribution terminal, Seletar aviation site, Tuas Lubricants Plant and Shell Energy and Chemicals Park Singapore on Bukom.
We are also installing solar panels at 37 Shell service stations. The solar panels will have a combined capacity of 2MWp, sufficient to reduce CO2 emissions by approximately 940 tonnes a year. In parallel, Shell and the Energy Market Authority are running a trial that integrates solar power, energy storage and smart energy management to enable ultra-fast 150kW electric vehicle charging at three Shell stations in Tampines, Pasir Ris and Lakeview.
Shell Singapore wants to transform its business in the country to thrive through the energy transition.
Known as “UpSkill ShellSG”, the new initiative aims to deepen Shell’s continuous learning and improvement culture by providing all employees with a suite of future-ready coursework.
The Pulau Bukom Manufacturing Site is selected as Shell’s first site globally to transform the ways to work in this pilot.
THERE’S MORE THAT WE CAN DO
We are partnering with customers, the government and other parties to enable key sectors to decarbonise with low-carbon solutions.
Shell Singapore aims to support society’s journey towards a net-zero carbon economy.
Shell Singapore will continue to develop far-reaching solutions to reduce emissions in the longer term.
