The consortium of Tuas Power and ST Engineering, along with PUB, Singapore’s National Water Agency, have officially opened Singapore’s fifth desalination plant located on Jurong Island. Jurong Island Desalination Plant (JIDP) has a daily capacity of up to 137,000 cubic metres (about 30 million gallons) – the equivalent of 55 Olympic-sized swimming pools of water.
Due to its co-location with an existing power plant, the Jurong Island Desalination Plant can save about 5,000 megawatt hours per year, equivalent to the annual power needs of nearly 1,000 Housing and Development Board households.
