About the entity

Singapore’s national water agency PUB has appointed Goh Si Hou, former Chief of Singapore’s Army, as its new chief executive, effective July 22, reports The Business Times.

Goh Si Hou has been part of PUB’s board since Apr 1, 2021 and was most recently the Chief of Army in the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF).

Goh succeeds Ng Joo Hee, who will retire from the Administrative Service. Ng became PUB chief executive in 2015 after serving as Singapore’s Commissioner of Police from 2010 to 2015 and Commissioner of Prisons from 2008 to 2010.

Singapore’s Ministry of Sustainability and the Environment (MSE) released a press statement highlighting Ng’s work during his time as chief executive. Numerous significant water infrastructure developments were commissioned, including the Tuas Desalination Plant in 2019, the Marina East Desalination Plant in 2020 and the Jurong Island Desalination Plant in 2022.

"The commissioning of these plants has further strengthened Singapore’s water security," said the ministry.

Ng also spearheaded sustainability projects, like developing PUB's floating solar farms at reservoirs and the co-location of PUB's water reclamation plant with the National Environment Agency's (NEA) waste management plant Tuas Nexus.

The ministry said: “MSE would like to place on record our deep appreciation to Mr Ng for his leadership and valuable contributions to PUB and the MSE Family, and welcome Mr Goh.”
