Resorts World at Sentosa
Transplanting over 900 trees affected by construction work and replanting them along the streets of Hollywood and New York within its Universal Studios theme park is among the environmental initiatives the new Resorts World at Sentosa. The resort also has Singapore’s largest solar installation, that can generate over 500,000 kilowatts per hour of energy a year. They expect to save half a million Singapore dollars easily on electricity bills each year.
Thomas Arasi, CEO, Marina Bay Sands – another nearby Singapore resort, said: “We have spent S$25 million on an intelligent building management system, and what that would do is that it would automatically record the customer’s needs and energy saving patterns.” They’re integrating a cool option for the guests, as Thomas goes on to explain “On the remote control in our guest room, there will be an eco button that you can hit and it will just take things up a notch and hopefully you will not feel it.”
