At 70 million imperial gallons per day (318,500 m3/d), the new plant will be PUB’s fourth and largest Public Private Partnership (PPP) venture to date and one of the largest seawater reverse osmosis desalination plants in Asia. Project Commercial Operation is scheduled for mid-2013. The plant will be a key element in PUB’s holistic approach to water management using the Four National Taps and will help realise the country’s goal of achieving water self-sufficiency by 2061. The plant will be constructed in Tuas, Singapore.
Black & Veatch will continue to provide consultancy services to PUB during the delivery of the new plant. Black & Veatch leads a team which includes financial and commercial advisers Ernst & Young and legal advisers Bryan Cave.
