Singapore’s fifth desalination plant, a waste-tech startup accelerator and the first town centre with district cooling were among the announcements made at the Singapore International Water Week 2022 and CleanEnviro Summit Singapore 2022.

The Jurong Island Desalination Plant (JIDP) has a daily capacity of up to 137,000 cubic metres — the equivalent of 55 Olympic-sized swimming pools of water. It was officially opened on April 17.

Spanning over 3.7 hectares, or the size of five football fields, JIDP receives seawater from Tuas Power’s Tembusu Multi-Utilities Complex (TMUC), which it then processes into potable water.
