PUB Singapore NEWater Project

Portable Water Pipeline

The Singapore Public Utilities Board (PUB) has set up several new plants for highly pure water called NEWater. NEWater is treated used water that has undergone stringent purification and treatment process using advanced dual-membrane (microfiltration and reverse osmosis) and ultraviolet technologies. Treated water is highly pure.

As part of the distribution network of NEWater, 87 Kilometres of 2.2m Dia pipeline are being installed.The endeavour is a major construction project with over 970,000 cubic meters volume of earth excavated, 27 major waterway crossings and 11 expressway crossings.

The project was handled by CPG / CH2M Hill USA (JV) as consultants to PUB. Contract for supply of a major part of the 2.2 m Dia pipes was awarded to a major pipe mill in Singapore who produced pipes and fittings for the project at four locations: Singapore, Indonesia and 2 locations in Malaysia.

The pipe mill selected Purethane® coatings as the lining of choice for the pipeline. Amchem’s credentials were vetted by CPG / CH2M Hill and in December 2007 the mill awarded Amchem a contract to supply Purethane® materials for the project. Supplies began in early 2008 and were finished by the end 2008. More than 500,000 Litres of Purethane® Coatings and 15,400 Kgs. Of Purethane® Primer was supplied for the project with zero defects.

Amchem’ skilled application technicians were also posted at the pipe coating yard to ensure quality. Several hundred special fitting were fabricated in Indonesia and shipped by barges to Singapore.

This was possibly the world’s largest single project for coating of Steel Pipe with 100% Solids Polyurethane Coatings!
