Koh Brothers Eco Engineering Limited announced today that it has, through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Koh Brothers Building & Civil Engineering (KBCE), signed a contract with Meiden Singapore, a subsidiary of Meidensha Corporation, to implement its ceramic membrane technology to treat industrial used water at Singapore International Water Week (SIWW) 2022.
KBCE’s agreement with Meiden Singapore is part of the $200.7 million contract that the Public Utilities Board (PUB) had awarded to the group in October 2021, to carry out mechanical, electrical and instrumentation control and automation works for Industrial Liquids Module 1 at Tuas Water Reclamation Plant (Tuas WRP).
KBCE is involved in the construction of the treatment process from preliminary, primary to secondary treatment, including headworks screening, primary sedimentation, biological treatment, drainage pumping station, and major pipe racks under the scope of work.
Upon completion, Tuas WRP will offer the world’s largest industrial used water treatment facility using ceramic membrane technology by Meiden Singapore to reclaim industrial used water, with a daily treatment capacity of 75,000m3. This project which commenced in November 2021, is expected to be completed by December 2025. Operation and Maintenance services will follow, covering a period of 12 months.
To recap, Koh Brothers Eco Engineering’s expertise in water and wastewater treatment has been observed in past projects including the Changi Water Reclamation Plant, Keppel Marina East Desalination Plant and the Tuas WRP Contract 2A – Influent Pumping Stations.
Francis Koh, chairman of Koh Brothers Eco Engineering says, “This will enhance our position to secure more MEICA projects in the future, underscored by our solid track record and tapping on our core competencies and expertise.”
“Looking ahead, we will continue to focus on higher value projects by leveraging our strong track record, expertise and embracing technology and innovation to enhance productivity and our competitive edge,” he adds.
