The plant will have a water production capacity of 318 500 cubic metres per day, making it the largest in Asia outside of the Middle East.
 
The Tuaspring Desalination Plant is being developed by Tuaspring Pte Ltd, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Singapore’s Hyflux Ltd, and is expected to start operations in 2013.
 
Toray has already supplied RO membrane elements to a number of plants in Singapore, including the SingSpring Desalination Plant in Tuas and the NEWater plant in Changi.
