As a result of the extensive treatment including Xylem’s Wedeco UV disinfection solution, the city’s industrial sector and communities living in the east of the city, will benefit from an additional 50 million gallons of reclaimed water per day.
The second Changi Water Reclamation Plant will include microfiltration, reverse osmosis and Xylem’s Wedeco Spektron 2000e UV disinfection system and is an initiative of the Singapore Water Reclamation Study, also known as the NEWater Study. NEWater is working to meet 55 percent of Singapore’s water demand with reclaimed water by 2060.
Johnson Tang, Managing Director, UESH Holdings Pte Ltd, the company responsible for constructing the new facility, said, “This second Changi water reclamation plant is another important step toward Singapore securing the majority of its water needs from reused water. Xylem’s Wedeco Spektron 2000e UV system delivered on the project requirements for a sustainable and efficient wastewater disinfection option with a low life cycle cost.”
Robin Wong, General Manager, Xylem Singapore and Regional Marketing Director, Greater Asia for Xylem said, “Singapore is at the cutting edge of water reuse. As a company focused on developing innovative, efficient solutions to the global water challenges, we are proud to support this latest step in the nation’s journey towards increased water reuse.”
