Water is the foundation of life but clean safe drinking water is scarce. Today over one billion people live in areas with no access to clean drinking water.


Faced with the challenge of ensuring self-sufficiency in water, Singapore has used technology to innovate and develop new water management and treatment technologies such as water reclamation and seawater desalination. Today, the country has transformed its vulnerability in water into a strength.


A case in point is the Singapore Changi Wastewater Reclamation Project (CWRP). CWRP which was conceived at the turn of the millennium, adopted innovative waste water re-use technology, principally through the use of reverse osmosis, to give Singapore the opportunity to produce ultra-high-quality recycled water on an industrial scale. This of course meant that sewage was not just waste water any more, but would become a major source of potable water for Singapore.


PrimusTech was selected by the Public Utilities Board (PUB) for the design and implementation of the SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) System involving extensive use of computers, robust industrial-grade programmable logic controllers (PLCs), fibre-optics, networked data communications and graphical interfaces. CWRP has one of the largest SCADA systems in the world with approximately 500,000 input-output points. The sizeable upgrade of the CWRP’s SCADA System is currently undertaken by us.


Our water track record includes:


  • CWRP packages: C2B, C2B Phase 2, C3C and C4C
  • Seletar High Grade Water (Newater) Reclamation Project
  • Ulu Pandan Water Reclamation Plant (UPWRP)
  • Kranji Water Reclamation Plant (KWRP)
  • Jurong Water Reclamation Plant (JWRP)
  • Seagate W3 RO/DI
  • Marina Barrage

In China, PrimusTech was involved with engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) of municipal water treatment projects which included nine treatment plants in Shangdong, Shanxi, Jiangsu, Liaoning and Hebei. PrimusTech was also involved in an industrial waste water treatment plant in Binhai.
