Singapore’s national water agency PUB has named Hyflux Ltd as the preferred bidder to design, build, own and operate Singapore’s second and largest seawater desalination plant in Tuas for a 25-year concession period.

The new desalination plant, which is designed to produce 318 500 cubic metres of water per day, will incorporate Hyflux’s proprietary Kristal ultrafiltration membrane technology for the pre-treatment of the desalination process.

“This will be the second largest installation of our ultrafiltration membranes in a desalination plant after the world’s largest seawater reverse osmosis plant that Hyflux is developing in Magtaa, Algeria. The onsite generation of power will help us drive higher efficiency and cost effectiveness in operations and maintenance of the desalination plant,” said Olivia Lum, group CEO and president of Hyflux.

The project is situated on a 14-hectare site close to the SingSpring desalination plant which Hyflux also developed. Construction is set to start by the fourth quarter of 2011, and the project is scheduled to start operating by 2013.
