Black & Veatch wins Singapore water reclamation contract

Black & Veatch has been selected by the Singapore’s national water agency, PUB, to provide consultancy services valued at S$2.2M (£1M)  for the expansion of the Changi Water Reclamation Plant.

The expansion involves retrofitting an additional treatment process to the existing treatment facility to increase its capacity. 

Black & Veatch will provide engineering design services for the addition of a membrane filtration treatment process within the Changi Water Reclamation Plant and supervise its installation. The addition enables PUB to increase its capacity up to 60,000 cubic meters per day of reclaimed water.

In keeping with previous engineering designs at the Changi Water Reclamation Plant, the membrane filtration expansion will observe sustainability best practices, occupying a small footprint within the existing site. Equipment will be integrated with existing structures where feasible and incur relatively limited capital costs as a result.

The Changi Water Reclamation Plant’s total capacity is 800,000 cubic meters per day. The facility is already one of the largest and most advanced facilities of its kind in the world.  The plant occupies only 32ha, just one-third the equivalent footprint of a conventional plant.
