Choa Chua Kang waterworks to undergo S$29 million reconstruction

SINGAPORE - Choa Chu Kang Waterworks, one of Singapore’s oldest water treatment plants, will undergo reconstruction and be transformed into a “state-of-the-art” water treatment facility when completed in 2026, said the national water agency PUB on Monday (Jun 21).


This new facility will boast the latest water treatment technologies and smart capabilities to “greatly enhance” its operations, maintenance, safety and security when completed in 2026. The announcement was made in conjunction with Singapore International Water Week 2021, a fully virtual event that runs from Jun 21 to Jul 2. PUB said in a press release that the tender to provide professional engineering services for the waterworks’ reconstruction has been awarded to engineering design and consultancy company Binnies Singapore for S$28.8 million. 


“Binnies Singapore is required to provide detailed design, construction supervision and commissioning of Choa Chu Kang Waterworks reconstruction project for the next five years,” said PUB. The plant will be upgraded with new water treatment technologies and equipment such as high rate clarifiers as well as an advanced membrane filtration system, replacing existing equipment and buildings constructed before 1981. Parts of the waterworks were upgraded in 2019 with advanced water treatment processes and this upgraded infrastructure will not be affected by the upcoming reconstruction, added PUB.


“The reconstructed Choa Chu Kang Waterworks is envisioned to be a fully integrated and automated plant with advanced process control capabilities to optimize plant performance, achieving an efficient resource footprint ... while ensuring safe water quality,” said PUB. In addition to smart technologies and digital solutions which will be adopted in the waterworks’ operations and maintenance, new rooftop solar panels will also be added to the existing 1 megawatt-peak system, to power its operational needs and reduce its carbon footprint.
