The aerospace industry in Singapore is involved in maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services, manufacturing, aftermarket services, as well as research and development (R&D) activities for aircraft and spacecraft. The industry has more than 130 aerospace players with Singapore being Asia’s leading one-stop MRO solutions provider, contributing 10% to global MRO output.

In 1H 2021, we conducted a survey of 28 Singapore-based aerospace companies that have deployed, are deploying or plan to deploy solar systems in their buildings and facilities situated at the Seletar Aerospace Park and other locations. The survey excludes companies directly involved in aviation services, such as airlines. We asked for information pertaining to locations deployed (e.g. building and car park roofs), installed capacity and annual electricity generated. This helps us build the baseline inventory for the industry. We also asked for qualitative feedback on the solar transition process. Our intention is to publish a follow-up report in 1-2 years’ time to understand the progress of solar adoption for the industry.
