Biwater AEWT was recently awarded a supply contract for the largest Water Reuse project in South East Asia. At a capacity of 228,000 m³/day (60MGD), this will provide 15% of Singapore’s water demand by 2010.
The contract, awarded by the main contractor, SembCorp Industries, is for a Reverse Osmosis treatment plant for the fifth, and largest, NEWater facility in Singapore. SembCorp Industries is the main contractor for the design, build, own and operate contract at the Changi Water Reclamation Plant.
The new plant will initially treat 68,130 m³/d (18 MGD) of Changi Water Reclamation Plant’s total effluent, which is currently 800,000 m³/d (211 MGD). By 2010 treatment at the new plant will be ramped up to 228,000 m³/d (60 MGD).
Biwater has now secured a total capacity of over 1,562 MLD (413 MGD) installed or contracted projects in reverse osmosis and nanofiltration for the treatment of seawater, brackish water and water re-use.
