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.

Deputy Prime Minister and Coordinating Minister for Economic Policies Heng Swee Keat was the Guest of Honour at the ceremony, held at the start of the Singapore International Water Week 2022.

Alongside him to open JIDP were Minister for Sustainability and the Environment Grace Fu, PUB Chief Executive Ng Joo Hee, Tuas Power President & CEO Jiang Hanbin and ST Engineering’s President for Marine Ng Sing Chan.
