Sunlight Electrical

Powering Singapore for 40 years

The customer

With more than 40 years of experience in electrical business, Sunlight Electrical is one of the leading manufacturers of switchgear in South East Asia.

Sunlight has completed a wide variety of projects in the public and private sectors, some of them being amongst the most emblematic in the country. For instance, Marina Bay Sands, Formula One Building, The Esplanade, the light trains rail and Mass Rapid Transit system, Singapore Exchange Center, Vivo City, the Singapore flyer and various buildings and structures at the Marina Bay.

The challenge

Sunlight’s goal is to provide their customers with products with the highest level of technical performance and reliability. The company provides fully tested solutions and is among the few in the local market that has a comprehensive range of ASTA (Association of Short Circuit Testing Authority, UK) certifications from 250 to 6300 Amperes. This has been key to secure their participation in such high profile projects.

Sunlight manufactures tailor-made solutions that can be adapted to different applications and customer needs. To provide an outstanding customer service, Sunlight needs to be flexible, to have a responsive aftersales support and to provide on-site testing and commissioning of their products.

To be able to fulfill their goals and to have a competitive edge, Sunlight relies on the products and technical expertise of renowned manufacturers such as ABB.

The ABB solution

ABB switches have a high electrical performance and reliability even in the most demanding power network conditions. This is critical to obtain the necessary certifications, including the ones from ASTA. With the certifications, Sunlight can ensure and prove to their customers that the switchgear fulfill all their requirements and that they receive a high quality product.

ABB switches have the optimal size for easy wiring and to use the minimum amount of copper and bus bars. ABB offer includes a wide variety of accessories that increase the flexibility of the installation. One example is the shafts, which are adjustable to the installation length. “By using ABB switches, the productivity on site increases - the installer does not need to measure and cut every shaft to the precise length, but only to adjust it and fix it without using any special tools. As a result, the installation time of the switch is reduced by half”, said Mr. Sung Puay Kiang , President & Executive Director for Sunlight.

Another aspect supported by the adjustable shafts is that with a limited amount of shaft types, Sunlight can cover many different installations with different lengths. This feature makes the customer’s logistic process smoother, as they can purchase and stock items using less part numbers.

The cooperation and sales support has also been a reason why Sunlight has chosen ABB as a switch supplier. Mr. Sung Puay Kiang said “We do not need to worry. We know we can always rely on the expertise and responsiveness of the ABB team, under any circumnstance”.
