JTC Corporation (JTC) is planning to construct an Underground Science City Development project in Singapore.
The project involves the construction of an underground city under Kent Ridge on 20ha of land.
The project includes the construction of 40 linked rock caverns (each with a cross-section of about 500m2 and about 25m high) that will accommodate 30-story below ground data centers, research and development (R&D) facilities, offices and the installation of elevators, safety and security systems.
Jurong Consultants Pte Ltd and Amberg Engineering AG have been appointed to undertake feasibility study along with JTC Corporation, GeoAlliance Consultants, National University of Singapore (NUS), and Nanyang Technological University.
On December 28, 2009, the feasibility study activities commenced and completed in March 2012.
JTC is conducting optimisation studies required to close the technological gaps to safely operate underground caverns. The studies are for fire safety, Air-Conditioning and Mechanical Ventilation (ACMV), reliable power systems designs, as well as, understanding the psychological, health and social impacts of working long term in underground space.
Planning activities are underway.
The project involves the construction of an underground city on 20ha of land in Singapore.
