Singapore – Waste Management Facility

Development of a waste management facility & water reclamation plant

Ramboll has been awarded a contract for the design and implementation of a new integrated waste management facility (IWMF) that will treat up to 2.4 million tonnes of waste each year.

The facility is part of a wider project being undertaken by the National Environment Agency and the Public Utilities Board, who are looking to integrate used water and solid waste treatment processes. As a result, a new deep tunnel sewerage system (DTSS) and water reclamation plant (WRP) will also be developed.
