PUB, Singapore’s national water agency, selected a team comprising Sembcorp and Black & Veatch to deliver the country’s fifth and largest NEWater facility, which produces recycled water. The Sembcorp NEWater Plant (SNP) at Changi will ensure that Sembcorp supplies NEWater to the PUB for the next 25 years.
To meet its daily water needs, Singapore has to import a significant amount of water from neighboring Malaysia, which is energy-intensive. Taken as part of a holistic approach to water management, NEWater is a state-of-the-art tool that helps to relieve water scarcity. The design team of water and energy experts focused on minimizing life cycle costs. Black & Veatch provided the detailed design, as well as construction support and assistance in startup of the facility.
