Keppel Corp unit inks pact to develop Chinese model smart city in Wuxi

SINGAPORE - A unit of Keppel Corp has inked a non-binding pact to develop a model smart city in China, in a deal announced by the Singapore government-linked conglomerate on Thursday (Dec 6) morning.

Wholly owned Keppel Urban Solutions has agreed to work with Chinese energy company Envision and the local authorities in Wuxi, in the eastern province of Jiangsu, on an Internet of Things (IoT)-based urban development that will include a smart industry park in the Taihu New City project.

The plans for the two square kilometre smart city follow a separate memorandum of understanding (MOU) between Keppel Urban Solutions and Envision in January, to collaborate on smart energy and smart city solutions by tapping each other's expertise and resources.
