Grund­foss signs land­mark deal with Sin­ga­pore giant PUB

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - NEWS -

Lead­ing global pump man­u­fac­turer, Grund­fos and PUB, Sin­ga­pore’s na­tional wa­ter agency have signed a mem­o­ran­dum of un­der­stand­ing (MOU) to jointly col­lab­o­rate on the de­vel­op­ment of wa­ter tech­nolo­gies and so­lu­tions.

The sign­ing event took place at Sands Expo and Con­ven­tion Cen­tre dur­ing the Sin­ga­pore In­ter­na­tional Wa­ter Week (SIWW). The SIWW is a global plat­form to share and co-create in­no­va­tive wa­ter so­lu­tions.

The MOU sets out to sup­port PUB in its mis­sion to en­sure a ro­bust and sus­tain­able wa­ter sup­ply for Sin­ga­pore, and to con­tin­u­ously ex­plore new tech­nolo­gies and so­lu­tions to meet cur­rent and fu­ture wa­ter chal­lenges.

It will create a plat­form for dis­cus­sion and ex­change of ideas on ar­eas such as wa­ter and en­ergy ef­fi­ciency, wa­ter and waste­water treat­ment, as well as wa­ter qual­ity mon­i­tor­ing.

The col­lab­o­ra­tion will fo­cus on wa­ter in­no­va­tion, in­clud­ing the de­vel­op­ment and ap­pli­ca­tion of high ef­fi­cient pump so­lu­tions in wa­ter treat­ment, R&D in waste­water treat­ment so­lu­tions and dis­in­fec­tion tech­nolo­gies, and ap­pli­ca­tions of in-pipe en­ergy re­cov­ery tech­nolo­gies.

“Through this strate­gic agree­ment, Grund­fos will sup­port Sin­ga­pore’s en­deav­ours in ad­dress­ing chal­leng­ing wa­ter is­sues,” says Poul Due Jensen, group se­nior vice pres­i­dent and re­gional man­ag­ing di­rec­tor for Grund­fos Asia Pa­cific.

“These span from the man­age­ment of scarce wa­ter re­sources to wa­ter ef­fi­ciency man­age­ment sys­tems for heavy in­dus­trial users. Grund­fos’ Wa­ter In­no­va­tion Cen­tre in Sin­ga­pore will en­able mul­ti­a­gency col­lab­o­ra­tion and in­for­ma­tion shar­ing on wa­ter and waste­water man­age­ment and tech­nol­ogy, so as to ad­dress the im­pact of cli­mate change and grow­ing econ­omy on global wa­ter chal­lenges.”
