Singapore’s Public Utility Board (PUB) has awarded a major contract for site development works for the Tuas Water Reclamation Plant.
The contract was awarded to McConnell Dowell, which will provide site-wide facilities and support services for the reclamation plant.
The scope of work includes construction of the outfall, sewer connections in the vicinity, as well as the provision and maintenance of services including security, utilities, telecommunications and traffic management.
The Tuas facility is a key part of the US$7.3 billion project Deep Tunnel Sewerage System (DTSS) Phase 2 project, designed to meet Singapore’s water collection, treatment, reclamation and disposal needs, by extending the existing deep tunnel system to carry wastewater from western and southern areas to central water reclamation plants.
“The Tuas Water Reclamation Plant is a highly strategic and important infrastructural project that will deliver substantial environmental and social benefits to Singapore and its people,” said McConnell Dowell CEO Scott Cummins.
“This award recognises the high-standard of quality work and the expertise demonstrated by McConnell Dowell in delivering complex projects working collaboratively with all stakeholders.”
Construction is scheduled to commence in early 2019, with the full commercial operation targeted for 2025.
