Inge GmbH’s ultrafiltration technology has been chosen as a pretreatment stage for a seawater desalination facility in Singapore.

The replacement project is Inge’s biggest contract to date. The contract covers 68 Inge T-Rack 3.0 trains equipped with more than 7000 dizzer XL type modules.

These will replace old UF membranes from another manufacturer at the Tuas South desalination plant in Singapore. The plant has a UF production capacity of 760 MLD and produces drinking water for municipal use.

The end user has had positive experiences with Inge in the past. Singapore’s Tuas 3 desalination plant already uses Inge products. This prompted the Singapore-based water solution provider Memiontec to select Inge for the replacement project, with the approval of the end user.

Tuas South desalination plant is one of Asia’s biggest seawater reverse osmosis desalination plants for drinking water production. Construction of the desalination plant began in July 2011 and commissioning was completed in September 2013. The desalination plant is designed for a capacity of 318 500 m³ (70 million gallons) per day.
