Civil engineering and construction firm Zublin penalised for environmental offences

CIVIL engineering and construction firm Zublin was fined S$7,000 by PUB and the National Environment Agency for two environmental offences.

A joint statement issued by the two agencies on Thursday said that Zublin was found responsible for illegal discharge into the Pang Sua Diversion Canal and fined S$2,000.

Zublin was also fined S$5,000 for not providing an adequate holding tank for earth control measures. Holding tanks are required for temporary storage of rainwater run-off before it is treated and subsequently discharged into public drains.

Zublin has been based in Singapore since 1997. Ed Züblin AG, its Singapore Branch, is a member of the Strabag group which is one of the largest construction companies in Europe, according to Zublin's website.
