Kurihara Kogyo Co., Ltd., winner of WSH Performance (Gold) award, was involved in the building of one of the world’s biggest floating solar farms – Sembcorp Tengeh Floating Solar Farm. Experts believe that the solar farm’s reduction of carbon emissions could be equivalent to taking 7,000 cars off the road.
About the size of 45 football fields, the farm contributed to Singapore’s goal of quadrupling its solar energy production by 2025 to help tackle climate change. Kurihara was appointed by Sembcorp for onsite installation works, which include the installation of floaters, electrical installation, final testing and commissioning of the solar panels.
Kurihara Kogyo Co., Ltd, one of this year’s Workplace Safety & Health Gold awardees, was engaged to undertake the electrical installation works for a recent nursing home project in Tampines that utilised PPVC. The company reduced the time needed to complete the project by 15 per cent and raised labour productivity by 40 per cent, compared with traditional methods.
“Putting productivity as a priority leads to profitability and employee retention, and a sustainable business in the long run. Adopting PPVC, amongst other technologies, and digitalisation is our strategy for success as a player in Singapore’s building industry,” says Kurihara Kogyo’s general manager Kenji Nabei.
