Baguio wins EPD contract to provide Smart Recycling Machines with a Big Data Analytics Platform

Baguio Green Group Limited (“Baguio” or the “Company”, Stock Code: 01397.HK) is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a 2-year service contract (“Contract”), by the Environmental Protection Department (“EPD”) of the HKSAR Government (“the Government”) for the provision of Smart Recycling Machines (“SRMs”), each with two compartments, and a Big Data Analytics Platform (“the Platform”) to drive the smart city development in Hong Kong.

This Contract marks a significant milestone for Baguio in its development of smart technology solutions for green initiatives. Throughout the years, Baguio has been managing EPD’s traditional 3-colour bins in thousands of locations in Hong Kong. The Company draws upon its invaluable collection experience in designing the SRM to help bring recycling in Hong Kong to the next stage.

The SRMs are connected with the EPD’s GREEN$ Electronic Participation Incentive Scheme to incentivize people with GREEN$ points for recycling. They are equipped with Internet of Things as well as wireless technologies. Transaction data are transmitted back to the back-end system in real time. This improves the efficiency of the recycling operation providing a better service for the community. Fill-level sensors are installed so that the recyclable collection party could arrive just in time to collect the recyclables. Not too early to waste logistics costs and create unnecessary carbon emission. Not too late to create any environmental nuisances. The Platform will also analyze transaction data to help the Government strategically deploy recycling resources at the right time and place to maximize effectiveness.

SRMs will begin to be deployed in the first quarter of 2023. They will be placed in various locations, including but not limited to government premises, public and private housing estates, rural villages, shopping malls, and schools. SRMs can collect a variety of recyclables such as plastics, paper, metal, and glass containers. After the 2-year pilot period, the Government will review the program and may expand it to significantly increase the number of SRMs in Hong Kong.

According to the Government’s Waste Blueprint for Hong Kong 2035, the city has set a target of zero landfill by 2035. To make this happen, it is crucial to see immediate and significant improvements in recycling. The Government’s Hong Kong Innovation and Technology Development Blueprint recently published aims to use smart and green technologies to create a low-carbon and sustainable environment. Baguio envisions significant business opportunities for the Company.

Smart and green technology business is expected to be the one of the growth engines for Baguio. It is also an essential pillar to complete its one-stop solution that includes delivery of people service, smart technology and ESG data to help the Government build a sustainable and greener smart city and to assist our commercial clients to significantly advance their ESG performance. Baguio will continue to develop more innovative products to fully capture the market potential and to grow its green technology business.

Japan – MHI Receives Contract for Extensions to the Macau LRT Network Using an AGT System

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. (MHI) has received an order from the Infrastructure Development Office (GDI) of the Macau Special Administrative Region in China for extensions of the Macau Light Rapid Transit(1) (MLRT) network using an Automated Guideway Transit(2) (AGT) system. The project will extend the MLRT Taipa Line opened in December 2019. MHI will make use of the accumulated knowledge of MHI Group, focusing its efforts on strengthening the system for safe and smooth transport in the Macau metropolitan area.

Macau LRT (Taipa Line)

This project comprises three new extensions from the Taipa Line (11 stations, 9.3km) currently operating on the Taipa island area of Macau, a district lined with new resort hotels. The Barra Extension (1 station expansion, 3.4km) will link the line to the Macau Peninsula opposite the island, the Seac Pai Van Extension (2 stations plus transfer station expansion, 1.3km) will provide access to Seac Pai Van, an area projected to grow in population and the planned site for construction of a large hospital, and the Hengqin Extension (2 station expansions, 2.2km) will run to Hengqin in China. The Seac Pai Van and Hengqin extensions will be executed under a three-company consortium with local general contractors Top Builders Macau Co. Ltd. and Hou Chun Construction and Engineering Company Limited. The project will contribute to further advancement of the regional economy and human resources development.

MHI will handle the entire system including the signals, communication systems, power supply facilities, track construction, platform doors, and fare charge machines (excluding construction of station buildings, civil engineering work, and rolling stock). The rolling stock planned for the lines are the AGT cars already delivered for the Taipa Line. For the project of the Taipa Line, MHI Group supplied 110 AGT cars, signal and train control equipment, power supply facilities, communication systems, tracks, maintenance facilities, platform doors, and fare charge machines. MHI also received an overhaul maintenance contract for the rolling stock for five years from the start of operations and will continue to support the stable operations of MLRT.

Going forward, MHI will utilize its extensive track record providing AGT systems in Japan, Singapore, South Korea, UAE (Dubai), and other areas throughout the world, along with the strength of its high-quality O&M (operations and maintenance) services to compete for the lead in the market for new transport system in Japan and overseas. MHI will make use of knowledge it has accumulated through experience implementing AGT systems to alleviate congestion in the Macau metropolitan area and will continue supplying safe and low-carbon transport solutions that will help support economic development and provide better convenience to people in countries around the world.

(1) The original abbreviation of LRT as “light rail transit” is widely used, but MLRT instead uses it to mean “light rapid transit” after the system’s high-speed performance.
(2) AGT systems are a new type of fully automated transport system with electric power drives, used in airports around the world to provide mobility between terminals and to nearby facilities. The system utilizes rubber tires to provide a smooth ride with low noise.
