Keppel Marina East Desalination Plant
Keppel Marina East Desalination Plant (KMEDP) is Singapore’s fourth desalination plant. The first of its kind in Singapore, the KMEDP is a large-scale dual-mode desalination plant that can either treat freshwater from Marina Reservoir or desalinate seawater, depending on wet or dry weather conditions. The plant achieves multiple land use with treatment facilities located underground, and green roof integrated with public open space for community recreation.
With a production capacity of 30 million gallons of fresh drinking water per day, the KMEDP is implemented under a Design, Build, Own and Operate arrangement. Keppel Infrastructure Holdings Pte Ltd, through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Marina East Water Pte Ltd, signed a 25-year Water Purchase Agreement with PUB to design, build, own and operate the KMEDP and supply fresh drinking water to PUB.
