Grundfoss signs landmark deal with Singapore giant PUB
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.”
