SINGAPORE (EDGEPROP) -- Koh Brothers Eco Engineering has secured a $200.7 million contract from the Public Utilities Board (PUB) to carry out mechanical, electrical and instrumentation control and automation (MEICA) works for Industrial Liquids Module 1 at Tuas Water Reclamation Plant (Tuas WRP).
The company will be constructing the treatment process from preliminary, primary to secondary treatment. This includes headworks screening, primary sedimentation, biological treatment, drainage pumping station and major pipe racks under the scope of work.
In a stock exchange filing, Koh Brothers Eco Engineering says once completed, the plant will house the world’s largest industrial used water treatment facility using ceramic membrane technology to reclaim industrial used water.

Scheduled to commence in November, the works are expected to be completed by Dec 2025. This will be followed by operations and maintenance services covering a period of 12 months.
Koh Brothers Eco Engineering is expected to receive a steady stream of recurring income from the operation and maintenance services to be carried out through to 2026.
CEO Paul Shin says the company is pleased to have been awarded the contract by PUB to support Singapore in the move to boost its capabilities in reclaiming and recycling used water.
“Winning this contract is a strong testament to our deep expertise and proven track record in water and wastewater treatment, which are well showcased in past projects.

“These include the Changi Water Reclamation Plant, one of the world’s largest in terms of treatment capacity, Keppel Marina East Desalination Plant, Singapore’s first large-scale plant that is able to treat both freshwater and seawater and the Tuas WRP Contract 2A – Influent Pumping Stations, where we are building deep pumping stations that will convey used water from PUB’s Deep Tunnel Sewerage System to the plant’s liquids modules for treatment,” says Shin.
The company is in a good position to secure MEICA projects in the future, Shin adds. The company will continue to optimise its resources and focus on raising productivity by embracing technology and digitalisation to enhance operational efficiencies.
