Binnies Singapore to transform Choa Chu Kang Waterworks

June 24, 2021

As Singapore International Water Week (SIWW2021) gets underway this week, RSK group company Binnies Singapore has more good news to share. The water, wastewater and flood resilience services provider has been selected by PUB, Singapore’s National Water Agency, to provide detailed design and construction supervision of the reconstruction of Choa Chu Kang Waterworks. The plant can treat 80 million gallons of water each day and services western Singapore.

Using the latest water treatment technologies and smart features, Binnies will transform the facility into a state-of-the-art drinking water treatment plant, and will take its operations, maintenance, safety and security to the next level. The S$28.8 million professional engineering services contract, which commenced on 15 June 2021, will be completed in 2026.

“The Choa Chu Kang Waterworks reconstruction project will provide PUB with a blueprint for future water plants that adopt advanced digital technology in their operations and maintenance,” said William Yong, Managing Director for Binnies Singapore. “Binnies Singapore is proud to be able to partner PUB in yet another groundbreaking initiative that will change the landscape for the water industry locally and beyond into the rest of the Asia region.”

William told Channel News Asia that Binnies intends to use a digital twin to enable “treatment processes to be tweaked and refined before the plant is fully operational. The digital twin will also enable PUB to train the operators.”

Binnies, (previously Black & Veatch’s water businesses in Europe and Asia), joined RSK in January and will be promoting Binnies and RSK’s collective and extensive water service offerings at SIWW2021 all this week. RSK Chief Executive Officer and founder Alan Ryder spoke to the event’s delegates on Monday as the global platform, which aims to share and co-create innovative water solutions, launched. He commented, “Since its inception in 1989, RSK has been focused on elevating environmental sustainability through its global businesses. Our group is excited to play a part in the revolutionising of urban water management in Asia through Binnies in Singapore. We look forward to exploring many new possibilities as we continue to grow in Singapore and Asia, partnering with businesses to deliver innovative and sustainable solutions for water projects.”

“We must engage in the open exchange of knowledge and innovative solutions to manage global water resources in a sustainable manner. Only by working together can we ensure water security for all,” said Minister for Sustainability and the Environment Grace Fu, on opening the event.

🤔 Should businesses offer free period products to staff?

We think they should!

💚 We decided to trial this at our offices, offering pads, panty liners and tampons for free. What’s more, all products on offer (and their packaging) are made from sustainable materials.

What do you think of this initiative?
