Six local SMEs from the clean technology (cleantech) industry will receive a S$2.5 million boost from JTC Corporation (JTC) and SPRING Singapore to test-bed thier new sustainable technologies and solutions . The companies will gain a head-start to carry out tinnovative test-bedding projects at JTC’s developments and facilities.

The six projects were selected out of 14 proposals submitted under first JTC­-SPRING Joint Grant Call for Test­bedding of Sustainable Solutions, JTC and SPRING revealed in a joint statement released January 28.

“Selected projects include the test­bedding of a hybrid solar photovoltaic (PV) system based on a patent­pending top­cooling technology, a decentralised wastewater recycling system that treats grey, brown and black water for non­potable uses, as well as thin, flexible organic solar films on building facades under tropical climate conditions,” the release said.

The six companies are Omega Solar, Ecosoftt, HVS Engineering, vTrium Energy, Transkinect and Sun Electric.

According to the release, four out of the six projects will be test–bedded in CleanTech Park, bringing the total number of technologies being test-bedded in the facility to 20.

“The test-bedding projects not only allow JTC to try out new innovative solutions, but also enable SMEs to implement their technologies in a real¬world environment and help them build a track record to go to market,” said Mr Leow Thiam Seng, Director of JTC’s Aerospace, Marine & CleanTech Cluster, adding that JTC will continue to open up our industrial facilities for other test¬bedding opportunities.
