ST Engineering secures $66.5mln project in Brunei
Project constitutes integrated Sungai Paku waste management and Sungai Akar engineered landfill project.
ST Engineering announced on Friday that a consortium formed by its marine arm, Singapore Technologies Marine Ltd (ST Marine) and its Brunei partner QAF Limited, has been awarded a S$66.5m contract to design and construct a waste management facility in Sungai Paku, Brunei. The project will comprise an engineered landfill, a transfer station plus three years of operations and maintenance of the facility, according to an ST Engineering report.
The design and construction of the modern Integrated Waste Management facility is expected to commence in late 2010 and will take about 18 months to complete. The tender awarded by the Brunei Economic Development Board was won through an international public tender. ST Marine's environmental arm, STSE Engineering Services Pte Ltd (STSE), will be undertaking the project with QAF Limited. This tender is one of the larger contracts to be undertaken by STSE since its setup.
The Sungai Paku waste treatment facility is designated to serve as a permanent waste disposal site for Brunei. It will be designed and constructed to the highest environmental standards of the USA Environmental Protection Agency guidelines. The engineered landfill facility will be prepared using heavy duty liners, a Leachate Treatment facility, an Environmental Monitoring System, Gas Extraction, Harvesting and an Odour Control System. A state-of-the-art Waste Transfer & Logistics Station will be constructed opposite the current closed landfill site in Sungai Akar and will serve as a hub to consolidate, pack and transfer waste efficiently and productively using large containerised vehicles from the city to Sungai Paku treatment plant.
"Winning this tender is an affirmation of our capability and experience to offer environmental solutions and services that meet our customers' needs. We are pleased to be entrusted with this project that will help to contribute towards a cleaner and sustainable environment for Brunei," said NG Sing Chan, President, ST Marine.
