J-Park Simulator: The roadmap to a smart industrial park

Followed by casual drinks and snacks

Please register at  (registration is open to all)


The industrial park on Jurong Island consumes more than 30% of Singapore’s energy. Small improvements can lead to significant savings and reduce Singapore’s carbon footprint. But which improvements should be made? In what combination? And what will the consequences be?
In this presentation we introduce the J-Park Simulator (JPS). JPS is a next-generation modelling tool which can provide public sector agencies and infrastructure providers with the ability to assess the full, multi-dimensional impact of different ’what-if’ scenarios in real time. From the chemical processes to the electrici-ty grids and from building information management to safety controls, JPS is able to give clear, visual infor-mation to support decision-making and option analysis. During this first public presentation, we will demon-strate JPS at work on case studies including low grade waste heat recovery, how chemical processes interact with the plant electricity consumption and safety aspects of storage tank design.
All are welcome to attend the demonstration, which will be of particular interest to those involved in sce-nario analysis or decision-making support in public sector agencies and industrial sectors relating to infra-structure support.

About CARES C4T:

CARES C4T is a collaboration between University of Cambridge and Singapore partners (including NRF, NTU and NUS), which investigates tools and technologies to support a reduced carbon footprint in the chemical industries. JPS is the flagship product of the research pro-gramme and allows virtual-world investigation of all outputs of CARES C4T.
