JTC’s Open Digital Platform: The technology powering Singapore’s smart district

As Singapore’s first smart and sustainable district, JTC’s Punggol Digital District (PDD) will be supported by its proprietary digital infrastructure - the Open Digital Platform (ODP).

Discover how the ODP’s digital twin technology will connect and monitor disparate data systems to drive operational efficiency and enhance PDD’s sustainability efforts - a stepping stone for Singapore’s Smart Nation ambitions. Currently test-bedded in JTC’s headquarters, the deployment of the ODP has already resulted in projected energy savings of 30% for its cooling systems.
