On 16 May 2016, ecoWise welcomed visiting officials from Tianjin, People’s Republic of China (PRC) to ecoWise’s Biomass Tri-generation Power Plant at the iconic Gardens by the Bay.
China’s fourth largest city, Tianjin is one half of SSTEC, which is the second flagship project between Singapore and China, after Suzhou Industrial Park. Led by Mr Zhang Yanfa (张彦发), vice-chairman of SSTEC Administrative Committee, the visiting delegation from various SSTEC Bureaus was received by ecoWise CEO, Mr Lee Thiam Seng for a tour of the power plant and energy resource centre at Gardens by the Bay.
