SINGAPORE – Singapore’s fourth desalination plant, which can produce about 30 million gallons of fresh drinking water per day, has begun commercial operations, said national water agency PUB on Tuesday (July 14).
The class will take place at the conclusion of Singapore International Water Week, from July 9-10, and is currently open for registration. The Masterclass is a two-day course, providing a comprehensive overview of all questions concerning desalination and plant management. Day 1’s program is titled, “Desalination Plant Process and Design,” and is divided into six sections including “Desalination Plant Intakes, Dissolved Air Flotation Clarifiers for HAB and Oil Spill Management,” “Pretreatment Filters,” “RO Systems,” “Desalination Plant Energy Use,” and “Concentrate Disposal.”
Embattled water company Hyflux said Tuesday that it has reached a restructuring agreement with United Arab Emirates-based utility company Utico, which will invest 400 million Singapore dollars ($290 million) and acquire a 95% stake in the Singapore company.

The pipeline, dubbed the “underground superhighway,” is 3- 6 meters in diameter and buried 35- 55 meters underground. It will collect wastewater from households and factories and transport it to treatment plants, which will be used mainly for industrial and air-con cooling purposes.
