At the top of the man-made mountain, hydraulic sprays are fitted around to keep the temperature between 23 to 25 degrees, to imitate the climatic state of 2,000 metres above sea levels.
A liquid desiccant system is used to achieve greater energy savings in the cooling process. It first de-humidifies the air with a liquid desiccant, then cools the dry air. This reduces the need to over-cool the air to remove its moisture as in a conventional air-conditioning system.
The 18 Supertrees in the Gardens were modelled and constructed after the form and function of mature trees. They create height to balance the current and future tall developments in the Marina Bay Sands area.
Some of them are embedded with photovoltaic cells to generate solar energy so they can light up at night. Others will be integrated with the Cooled Conservatories and serve as air exhaust receptacles.
