Durapower Greens-up Tao One’s TCM Mobile Clinic
Singapore, 30 June 2022 – Durapower Group has joined forces with Tao One Ltd to bring Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) to the doorsteps of Singaporeans living in the East Coast. The Group worked closely with Tao One Ltd to provide the community easy access to essential healthcare services via an environmentally friendly mobile clinic van fitted to deliver TCM consultancy, same-day prescriptions and acupuncture.
Durapower is the first Lithium-Ion Battery solutions integrator in Singapore to electrify Tao One’s inaugural TCM Mobile Clinic. With an increasing focus on environmental sustainability, the Group has successfully equipped Tao One’s mobile clinic with its next-generation Lithium-Ion Battery solution, which eliminates carbon monoxide emissions and noise pollution. In addition to saving the time needed to start a diesel generator, the integrated solution offers an enhanced experience for both the mobile medical team and residents.
As part of this strategic Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) partnership Durapower provides a clean and sustainable energy source on board the van to power medical equipment while it operates as a mobile clinic, providing residents with easy access to affordable TCM healthcare services throughout East Coast Group Representation Constituency (GRC), taking full advantage of the Eastern Coastal Loop’s connectivity. With this, the vehicle engine or any diesel genset is not needed during clinic operations hence eliminating carbon and noise emissions to the neighborhood.
In anticipation of the surge in demand for convenient access to essential healthcare services from the other GRCs, Tao One Ltd has been monitoring the efficacy of its inaugural Mobile Clinic. As part of the strategic CSR partnership, Durapower will look to electrify Tao One’s future TCM Mobile Clinics. The inaugural mobile clinic initiative will spearhead the development of similar future initiatives across Singapore, thus providing less mobile individuals easy access to essential healthcare services. Tao One Ltd has delivered 2,000 TCM consultancy and acupuncture services to needy residents in East Coast GRC since the launch of its mobile service last year.
Through this initiative with Tao One Ltd, Durapower is able to bring value to the community in Singapore and positively impact the environment with its high-performance battery system, providing cleaner and greener operation. Replacing the diesel genset which requires daily refuelling, the TCM Mobile Clinic can operate continuously for three to five days without the need to recharge its onboard battery system.
Durapower Group’s Chief Executive Officer, Kelvin Lim says, “Sustainability is the heart of our business. Since the founding of Durapower, we have been electrifying vehicles of all sizes and for all purposes to build a sustainable future, today. Our partnership with Tao One Ltd exemplifies our commitment towards environmental sustainability, and the shared sense of purpose has helped unified our culture and ground our beliefs. We are delighted collaborate with Tao One Ltd as their electrification partner to deliver tangible value to our community in a green and sustainable manner.”
Tao One Ltd’s Director-General, Andy Wong says, “Home to some 122,0001 residents and a highly-connected network, East Coast GRC is an ideal pilot testbed for Tao One’s TCM Mobile Clinic. We understand the importance of providing low-cost TCM services for the wider Singaporean community and as a home-grown enterprise, are delighted to work closely with Durapower to support our community outreach objectives where we successfully delivered 2,000 treatments to date. This is a worthy cause that touches the lives of many and we are happy to be partners in this.”
Through this initiative, residents of East Coast GRC have convenient access to TCM and acupuncture services via Tao One’s Mobile Clinic. This initiative highlights both Tao One Ltd and Durapower’s commitment to providing the community with essential healthcare services for the long-term, delivering on the Durapower’s promise of empowering lives and transforming the future for a better tomorrow.
