National water agency PUB said on Thursday that it would call a tender to build Singapore's fourth desalination plant at Marina East.
Planned with a capacity of 30 million imperial gallons per day (mgd), the plant will help meet future water demand in the city area and strengthen Singapore's drought resilience.
Located near water demand zones in the city and eastern Singapore, the Marina East desalination plant will also have the capability to treat freshwater from Marina Reservoir.
The tender will include the engineering design for the development of the plant under a Design-Build-Own-Operate (DBOO) arrangement.
PUB is a statutory board under the Ministry of the Environment and Water Resources. It is the water agency that manages Singapore's water supply, water catchment and used water in an integrated way.
