      HYFLUX will build Singapore's second and largest desalination plant, said national water agency PUB.

      At a first-year price of $0.45 per cubic metre, Hyflux offers the most competitive tariff for the supply of desalinated water over a 25-year period from 2013 to 2038.

      The plant is expected to commence operations in 2013 and will add another 318,500 cubic metres of desalinated water per day to Singapore's water supply. This will enhance the drought resilience of Singapore's water supply and ensure reliability for Singapore's water users.

      Hyflux will use membrane technology in the proposed plant and generate its own power on-site for the desalting process. All excess power will be sold to the power grid.

      The open tender attracted a total of nine bids.

      it should get cheaper

      but the problem w/ these water sources is it's still more expensive than Johor water.

      not necessary, if the oil and gas price spiral upward.

      Better to start building the reservior as plan earlier by reclaiming outside east coast which is cheaper in the long run. We are still receiving lots of rainwater.

    • They will have problem with building materials again, prices will just spiral out of control, and who is going to pay for that?

      Is there strict controls at all?

      Creating new source of water is important but how much does it reallty cost?
