PUB R&D Facility

The PUB R&D facility is the first PUB facility purpose-built to facilitate the piloting of desalination-related technologies. Constructed together with our 2nd desalination plant – Tuaspring, the facility began operation in October 2013 and is managed by PUB. The facility supplies three types of feed water received from Tuaspring, namely: seawater, ultrafiltration filtrate and seawater RO brine, and provides space for PUB and our research partners to conduct pilot and demonstration-scale studies under actual field conditions. Our partners, who are currently testing technologies ranging from pre-treatment to desalination technologies, include Kurita Water Industries, Toray, Evoqua Water Technologies, Hyundai Engineering and Construction and Sinomira Water.

Sites to visit include:

a) Desalination Plant
