VEOLIA WATER TECHNOLOGIES LAUNCHES NEW DISRUPTIVE TECHNOLOGY FOR DESALINATION AND WATER REUSE IN ASIA PACIFIC – Singapore

Veolia Water Technologies, a subsidiary of the Veolia group and specialist in water treatment, announces the Asia Pacific launch of the Barrel, an integrated plug-and-play reverse osmosis (RO) technology.

The Barrel will be showcased at the upcoming CleanEnviro Summit Singapore (18-21 April) and OzWater 2022 trade exhibition in Brisbane, Australia (10-12 May).

With increasing demand for fresh water and rising concerns over scarcity in the region, the Barrel meets the challenges and expectations of the desalination market while producing fresh water complying with all water quality standards.

Tuas Power-ST Engineering Consortium and PUB open Singapore’s fifth desalination plant – Singapore

The consortium of Tuas Power and ST Engineering, along with PUB, Singapore’s National Water Agency, have officially opened Singapore’s fifth desalination plant located on Jurong Island. Jurong Island Desalination Plant (JIDP) has a daily capacity of up to 137,000 cubic metres (about 30 million gallons) – the equivalent of 55 Olympic-sized swimming pools of water.

Deputy Prime Minister and Coordinating Minister for Economic Policies Heng Swee Keat was the Guest of Honour at the ceremony, held at the start of the Singapore International Water Week 2022.

Alongside him to open JIDP were Minister for Sustainability and the Environment Grace Fu, PUB Chief Executive Ng Joo Hee, Tuas Power President & CEO Jiang Hanbin and ST Engineering’s President for Marine Ng Sing Chan.

Singapore officially opens fifth desalination plant – Singapore

Singapore on Sunday (April 17) officially opened the country’s fifth desalination plant, which is about 5 per cent more energy efficient than conventional desalination plants.

Due to its co-location with an existing power plant, the Jurong Island Desalination Plant can save about 5,000 megawatt hours per year, equivalent to the annual power needs of nearly 1,000 Housing and Development Board households.

The new facility, which has been operational since earlier this month, was officially opened by Deputy Prime Minister Heng Swee Keat and Minister for Sustainability and the Environment Grace Fu on Sunday.

Singapore’s water management has become a global model for climate change mitigation – Singapore

Singapore is at the forefront of nearly all countries that have formulated a long-term plan for managing climate change and is steadfastly implementing that plan.

The small island state of 60 lakh people was among the 40 nations invited by US President Joe Biden to attend his leaders’ summit on tackling climate change last April.

Singapore is one of the most densely populated countries in the world.

How Singapore’s water management has become a global model for how to tackle climate crisis – Singapore

Singapore is at the forefront of nearly all countries that have formulated a long-term plan for managing climate change and is steadfastly implementing that plan.

The small island state of 6 million people was among the 40 nations invited by the US President Joe Biden to attend his leaders’ summit on tackling climate change last April. Singapore is one of most densely populated countries in the world.

It faces the twin challenges of ensuring sustainable water supply during droughts as well as effective drainage during intense rain seasons amid climate change.

Singapore using ‘virtual twins’ of land and sea to monitor activities and plan projects – Singapore

Dotted with ships and fish farms, and teeming with marine life, the seas surrounding Singapore contain a treasure trove of information, some of it invisible to the naked eye.

The information includes details about the seabed, the status of desalination plants and marine water quality.

To make such data available to government agencies here, the MPA started developing a repository of land, marine and coastal data in 2019.

ABB’s Technology in Singapore’s First Dual-Mode Desalination Plant Helps Tackle Water Scarcity in Region – Singapore

The United Nation’s (UN) World Water Development Report recently stated that nearly six billion people will suffer from clean water scarcity by 2050.

So, as we “celebrate” World Water Week, it’s time to turn our attention to the global water crisis facing cities around the world struggling with increasing demand for water, reduction of water resources and increasing water pollution, all driven by dramatic world population growth which is expected to reach 9.7 billion by 2050.

Singapore is using desalination as part of the solution to their water supply issue to provide enough clean drinking water for its ever-growing population of 5.5 million.

Singapore invests in energy-efficient water desalination – Singapore

A new grant issued by Singapore’s National Water Agency, PUB, will help the country to improve energy efficiency and ensure reliable and flexible water desalination processes.

On behalf of the National Research Foundation, PUB has issued a $1.3 million grant to technology firm DuPont to determine how Closed Circuit Reverse Osmosis (CCRO) technology can be applied to desalination processes to make the purification of seawater more energy-efficient, flexible and reliable.

The development follows DuPont obtaining CCRO process technology with the acquisition of Desalitech Ltd. in January 2020.

Marina East’s new desalination plant can produce 30 million gallons of fresh drinking water daily – Singapore

The plant can produce 30 million gallons of potable water daily, meeting 7 per cent of our daily demand.

This is also the first desalination plant that can treat both seawater and rainwater.

During dry periods, this plant will treat freshwater from Marina Reservoir which is less energy-intensive than treating seawater. This is also more cost-saving.
