Duo win work on Singapore super sewer

Aecom and Black & Veatch have won work on a super sewer in Singapore.

The firms – working as a joint venture – will provide engineering services for Phase 2 of the country’s Deep Tunnel Sewerage System.

Phase 2 will extend the new sewer to the western side of Singapore through a 30km-long  tunnel, 70km of link sewers, a reclamation plant and a 12km-deep sea outfall.

The new sewerage system will slash in half the amount of land needed in Singapore for used-water infrastructure.

“The project’s vision underlines [Singapore water agency] PUB’s innovation and global leadership in sustainable water solutions,” said Cindy Wallis-Lage, president of Black & Veatch’s water business.

“It is a privilege to team with Aecom and PUB in setting a new standard in reliable, flexible and energy-efficient infrastructure that promotes water sustainability for the future.”
