Both parties will work together developing knowledge-intensive programs and projects. The MOU was signed following the promising trial of PWN Technologies’ CeraMac demonstration plant at Choa Chu Kang Waterworks, funded by the Environment and Water Industry Programme Office (EWI)’s TechPioneer scheme.
“PUB is always on the lookout for innovative water solutions and the best way forward is through R&D collaborations with the private sector, which allows the various parties to mutually leverage on synergies gained from marrying expertise and technological resources. We look forward to a rewarding long-term partnership with PWN Technologies to not only meet Singapore’s growing water demand more efficiently, but also add vibrancy to the local water R&D landscape, and boost Singapore’s status as a global hydrohub,” said PUB chief executive Chew Men Leong.
“This MOU underscores the strengthening partnership between Singapore and the Netherlands in the area of advanced water treatment and PWN Technologies is extremely honoured to play a leading role in developing this relationship,” said Pieter Spohr, CEO of PWN Technologies.
