People Power

Singapore Power (SP) is committed to developing the full potential of every staff, just as they are committed to upgrading their systems and operations. Two SP staff share with us on why they have stayed with the company for so long.

By Farhan Shah

According to a benchmarking exercise conducted in 2011 by KEMA International, a global energy consultancy firm, Singapore possesses one of the best performing electricity networks in the world, a testament to the hard work put in by the employees of SP to ensure your light comes on when you press the switch. It was this chance to work with one of the world’s renowned energy utility companies and contribute to the wellbeing of Singapore’s electricity network that compelled Kelvin Seah Kuan Joo and Ranvijay s/o Rambiris to join SP.

An Electrical Influence


Kelvin Seah Kuan Joo

For Kelvin, two incidents steered him on the path toward SP. The first happened in secondary school when his dad, who was in the air-conditioning business, encouraged him to work in the power industry. Spurred by his dad’s urgings, Kelvin majored in Electrical Engineering in Ngee Ann Polytechnic. He worked hard, becoming the valedictorian for the graduating class and giving a speech in front of his proud father.

During the graduation ceremony, Kelvin met the then-Chairman of SP, Mr Ho Kwon Ping, who presented him with his diploma and a Gold Medallist award before offering him a place in the company. Affirmed by the vote of confidence, Kelvin accepted the offer, joining the ranks as a Technical Officer.

His first few years in the company were spent working on the low voltage network in the southern region of Singapore, transferring loads, attending to faults and switching operations. Kelvin also had to maintain and repair the switchgears and transformers and monitor the condition of the system.

Contributed by: Kaplan Singapore

Since 2008, universities in the United States have reported what appears to be a rising trend in the number of graduate students around the country, as more working adults seek further education to boost their employment chances.

Closer to home in Asia, many adult learners choose to do MBAs in an attempt to get ahead in their careers or shift industries. Nowhere is this truer than in Singapore, where both public and private institutions offer the highly sought after postgraduate degree.
