Solutions & Technology

Deputy Prime Minister and Coordinating Minister for Economic Policies, Mr Heng Swee Keat, Minister Grace Fu and partners from Tuas Power and PUB, launched Singapore’s fifth desalination plant in the presence of delegates from Singapore International Water Week 2022.

The consortium of Tuas Power and ST Engineering, along with PUB, Singapore’s National Water Agency, officially opened Singapore’s fifth desalination plant located on Jurong Island this evening at the start of the Singapore International Water Week 2022.

The Jurong Island Desalination Plant (JIDP) s equipped to produce up to 137,000 cubic metres (30 million gallons) of potable water, strengthening Singapore’s water security, and is about 5% more energy-efficient compared to other desalination plants due to co-location with an existing power plant.

Constructed under the Design, Build, Own and Operate (DBOO) model, JIDP will be operated by TP-STM Water Resources Pte Ltd – the Joint Venture company formed by the Tuas Power-ST Engineering consortium – for a 25-year period. Spanning over 3.7 hectares, which is about the size of five football fields, JIDP receives seawater from Tuas Power’s Tembusu Multi-Utilities Complex (TMUC) for processing into potable water.
