HMB Substation Achieves Provisional BEAM Plus

Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge Substation (HMB Substation) to be built at Chek Lap Kok, which is designed to provide reliable and stable power supply to the future Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge transportation hub, has been awarded the Provisional Platinum ratings, the highest under BEAM Plus for New Buildings Version 1.2 recognized by the Hong Kong Green Building Council.

Dedicated to sustainable building principles, the HMB Substation introduces various aspects of green features and low carbon initiatives with a systematic and innovative approach. More than 30% of surface area of the substation will be covered with greenery including vertical green wall, creating a welcoming entry for and blending in with the surroundings of the new transportation hub. Rainwater recycling system and automatic dripping irrigation system will be adopted to save more than 70% of water for irrigation. Photovoltaic (PV) panels with solar tracking devices will be installed to maximize the harvest of the solar energy which will further reduce power consumption of the substation. Solar tube will be provided to channel the outdoor natural sunlight to the interior space.

The green HMB Substation not only marks the new environmental standard for substation design, but also the CLP Power’s milestone in striving for environmental excellence continuously.
