Jacobs secures contract for Kranji Water Reclamation Plant Development in Singapore

  • Jacobs secures contract for Kranji Water Reclamation Plant Development in Singapore

About the entity

Jacobs has been awarded a contract by PUB, Singapore's National Water Agency, to provide professional engineering services for the new Kranji Water Reclamation Plant (WRP), according to a Jacobs press release. The appointment follows a rigorous competitive bidding process.

The Kranji WRP is a crucial part of Singapore’s strategy to meet the increasing demand for water treatment in the rapidly developing northern region. The facility is set to address the needs arising from upcoming residential and industrial projects, ensuring the efficient collection and treatment of used water.

Jacobs' scope of work includes engineering design, construction supervision, and commissioning of the plant, which is slated to be operational by 2035. Upon completion, the Kranji WRP will boast an initial treatment capacity of 120 million imperial gallons of used water per day (mgd), along with a fully integrated 50 mgd NEWater Factory. This plant will complete the three-node Deep Tunnel Sewerage System, complementing the existing Changi WRP in the east and Tuas WRP in the west, to secure Singapore’s long-term water needs.

Keith Lawson, Senior Vice President at Jacobs, highlighted the project's significance: "Winning the Wastewater Project of the Year Award with PUB for the Changi Water Reclamation Plant expansion underscores our expertise in sustainable water projects. The Kranji WRP contract extends our successful collaboration with PUB, allowing us to introduce cutting-edge water treatment technologies, smart operations, and innovative resource recovery solutions, while minimizing environmental impact.”

The project, situated in an ecologically diverse area, will adhere to strict environmental sustainability standards. Jacobs will ensure compliance with these standards throughout the development process. The plant will feature advanced smart automation and controls to enhance operational efficiency and is expected to potentially co-locate with the National Environment Agency's waste management facility, maximizing operational synergies.
