– Successfully established a platform to test various combustion parameters for the petrochemical industry
– Testament to the Group’s technical excellence and rich experience in the flare field

SINGAPORE – (ACN Newswire) – Mainboard-listed Sunpower Group Ltd. (“Sunpower”, SGX: 5GD.SI), an environmental protection solutions specialist with a strong focus on expanding into anti-pollution investment projects (“Green Investments” or “GI”) which generates long-term intrinsic value in the form of recurring income and cash flows, today announced that Jiangsu Sunpower Hi-tech Industry Co. Ltd. (“Jiangsu Sunpower”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, has clinched the top prize for the 2017 SINOPEC Science and Technology Progress Award.

In collaboration with two subsidiaries of China Petrochemical Corporation (“SINOPEC”), the team emerged victorious in the “Safe, Efficient and Environmentally-Friendly Flare Combustion Technology and Equipment” category. Flares are important safety devices used in refineries and petrochemical facilities to safely burn excess waste gases. The team established a mega flare burn-up test platform for the effective testing of combustion parameters such as burn-out rate, flame temperature and shape, heat radiation and combustion noise. In addition, it developed an energy-saving ignition system that is more stable and reliable than existing systems.

The newly-developed technologies have been successfully applied by leading petrochemical industry players, such as BASF and Royal Dutch Shell. The results affirmed the technologies’ reliability and stability as well as their positive impact on the environment, highlighting their potential for widespread application. This is testament to the Group’s commitment to promote greater environmental protection, and its leading position in providing environmental solutions to its many reputable petrochemical industry customers.

Mr. Guo Hong Xin, Executive Chairman of Sunpower, said, “We are pleased to receive this prestigious award, which marks the third time the Group has been recognised by SINOPEC for our technological excellence. Over the last 20 years, Sunpower has developed a full suite of advanced technologies that forms an integral part of our product range and service offerings in the M&S segment. This gives us an unrivalled competitive advantage in the market.”

“We are proud to play a significant part in pushing forward the frontier of China’s technological excellence in this field. We will continue to leverage our strong R&D capabilities to expand our ability to serve our customers across multiple industries and support the development of our M&S business.”
