Keppel-led consortium nabs $1.5b contract for Tuas Nexus waste management facility
They will build waste-to-energy and materials recovery facilities.
A Keppel-led consortium has received a letter of acceptance from the National Environment Agency (NEA) for an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract worth $1.5b to develop of a waste-to-energy (WTE) facility and a materials recovery facility (MRF) for Singapore’s new Tuas Nexus integrated waste management facility (IWMF).
The consortium comprises Keppel Infrastructure’s environmental engineering arm Keppel Seghers Engineering Singapore (Keppel Seghers), China Harbour (Singapore) Engineering Company (China Harbour) and ST Engineering Marine.
They will design and build a 2,900 tonnes per day (tpd) WTE facility and a 250 tpd MRF as part of the IWMF phase one development. To be co-located with PUB’s Tuas Water Reclamation Plant (Tuas WRP) at the Tuas View Basin site, the IWMF WTE facility and the MRF will be amongst the largest of such facilities in Singapore upon completion in 2024.
Keppel Seghers, China Harbour and ST Engineering Marine’s share of the works under the EPC contract will be approximately 48%, 31%, 21%, respectively. Keppel Seghers will be responsible for the overall project management, whilst China Harbour will undertake the civil, structural and landscaping scope of the project. ST Engineering’s Marine arm will be responsible for the construction of the MRF, power-island and the balance of plant.
The WTE facility will generate electricity to sustain the operations of Tuas Nexus IWMF phase one and the initial phase of Tuas WRP, with excess electricity for export to the grid.
