First NEWater plant in Singapore to feature third-stage reverse osmosis configuration.
Keppel Seghers Pte Ltd (Keppel Seghers), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Keppel Infrastructure Holdings Pte Ltd (Keppel Infrastructure), has completed the treatment capacity upgrade of the Keppel Seghers Ulu Pandan NEWater Plant on 11 March 2017.
Keppel Seghers embarked on the upgrading project on 29 April 2016 and it was completed ahead of schedule and on budget.
To expand the plant's capacity, Keppel Seghers installed a third-stage reverse osmosis (RO) system that recycles the reject water from the second-stage RO system, thereby boosting the plant's designed and contracted capacity to 162,800 m3 (35 million gallons/day) of NEWater daily, up from 148,000 m3 (32 million gallons/day) previously.
Mr Tan Boon Leng, Executive Director, Environmental Infrastructure of Keppel Infrastructure, said, "The Keppel Seghers Ulu Pandan NEWater Plant is the first large-scale plant in Singapore to adopt a third-stage reverse osmosis configuration. As the original designer and builder of the plant and its current operator, Keppel Infrastructure is uniquely placed to deliver this upgrade which has raised the plant's ability to deliver high-grade reclaimed water to support Singapore's aim to achieve a sustainable and secure water future."
The Keppel Seghers Ulu Pandan NEWater Plant upgrading works were planned and executed without affecting the plant's overall operational availability.
The Keppel Seghers Ulu Pandan NEWater Plant commenced commercial operations on 28 March 2007.
The abovementioned transaction is not expected to have a material impact on the net tangible assets or earnings per share of Keppel Corporation Limited for the current financial year.
