Singapore’s national water agency PUB has selected Jacobs to deliver professional engineering services for the domestic Kranji Water Reclamation Plant (WRP) development, following a competitive bid process. 

The Kranji WRP is expected to support an increase in used water collection and treatment due to upcoming residential and industrial developments in northern Singapore.  

Jacobs’ responsibilities encompass engineering design, construction supervision, and commissioning of the plant. 

Expected to be operational by 2035, the facility will have an initial treatment capacity of 120 million gallons per day and will incorporate a 50-million-gallons-per-day NEWater Factory. 

The Kranji WRP is a final part of the overarching Deep Tunnel Sewerage System, to fulfil the country’s long-term used water management needs.  

This joins the Changi WRP in the east and Tuas WRP in the west of Singapore.

In addition, Jacobs will ensure that the development of the Kranji WRP adheres to environmental sustainability standards.  

The plant will use smart automation and control systems to enhance operational efficiencies.  

Furthermore, it will employ advanced treatment technologies and may co-locate with the Singaporean National Environment Agency’s waste management facility to maximise operational synergies. 

Jacobs senior vice-president Keith Lawson said: “The new Kranji WRP appointment extends our strong collaboration with PUB and allows us to bring the latest advancements in water treatment technologies, smart operations and energy and resource recovery, all while minimising carbon footprint, biodiversity and environmental impact.” 

In April this year, Jacobs was appointed by the Miami-Dade County Water and Sewer Department in the US state of Florida to design upgrades for the county’s three wastewater treatment plants.
