Singapore’s fourth desalination plant by Keppel

Keppel Infrastructure Holdings Pte Ltd (Keppel Infrastructure) has recently been named the preferred bidder by PUB, Singapore’s national water agency, to design, build, own and operate Singapore’s fourth desalination plant for a concession period of 25 years. The new desalination plant will be able to produce 137,000 cubic metres (about 30 million gallons) of fresh drinking water per day and is expected to be operational in 2020.

Located in Marina East, the plant will be the first in Singapore with the ability to treat sea water, and fresh water from the Marina Reservoir, by using reverse osmosis and other advanced membrane technology. Keppel Seghers Pte Ltd will undertake the turnkey construction and commissioning of the project, and Keppel Infrastructure Services Pte Ltd (Keppel Infrastructure Services) will operate the plant for 25 years.

Dr Ong Tiong Guan, CEO of Keppel Infrastructure, said, “The Marina East Desalination Plant is an iconic project given its requirements of treating both reservoir and sea water. Keppel Infrastructure is proud to be able to support PUB’s vision for robust and sustainable supply of water. This project affirms Keppel Infrastructure’s capabilities to create value and offer innovative and competitive solutions for environmental infrastructure essential for sustainable urbanisation.”
