Tuas Power - Singapore Technologies Marine Consortium top bidder for Republic's fifth desalination plant

PUB, Singapore's National Water Agency, has selected Tuas Power - Singapore Technologies Marine Consortium (TP-STM) as the preferred bidder for Singapore's fifth desalination plant, to be located on Jurong Island.

As the preferred bidder, TP-STM will form a concession company to enter into a Water Purchase Agreement (WPA) with PUB by October 2017. The WPA will take full effect once all agreements have been finalised and executed, and the concession company achieves financial close.

The desalination plant on Jurong Island is expected to commence operations in 2020 and will add 30 million gallons (mgd) or approximately 137,000 cubic metres of water per day to the nation's water supply.

The seawater reverse-osmosis desalination plant will be co-located with Tuas Power's existing Tembusu Multi-Utilities Complex to derive synergies in resources such as seawater intake and outfall structures, and energy from the in-plant generation facilities.
