The need for fresh drinking water is not just important, it is vital. With pollution and contaminants changing and increasing, the means to deliver clean, safe water is steadily becoming more complex and challenging. Binnies’ capability in applying membrane technologies, ozonation, ultraviolet disinfection and other advanced treatments helps in converting difficult waters into potable supplies.
In the UK, we have introduced a technologically innovative secondary water treatment process to better manage levels of manganese in the water supply while replacing ageing equipment for Dee Valley Water’s 47.5 MLD Llwyn Onn Water Treatment Works. We have also employed state-of-the-art, green and safe construction techniques to design and construct the new 175-ML/d Glencorse Water Treatment Works. This project has been recognised with multiple awards in Europe and around the world.
In Singapore, we have been helping the government plan and build its water supply schemes for many years. We have a long history of involvement in the development of the 1,137 ML/d Johore River Waterworks in Malaysia, which currently supplies approximately 70% of Singapore’s water demand. We have been actively involved in all stages of its development since the 1960s. More recently, we were involved in the design and construction supervision of the award-winning Lower Seletar Waterworks in Singapore (2016 Green Mark Gold Award). This is a state-of-the-art 273 ML/d plant that utilises a pressurised membrane filtration system and on-site sodium hypochlorite generation system for disinfection.
We worked on the construction of the 800 ML/d Tai Po Water Treatment Works in Hong Kong, where the difficult terrain required a shift in conventional thinking and the adoption of space-efficient technologies. We subsequently upgraded Tai Po with on-site generation of ozone and chlorine gas for safer operation. This plant won the Global Grand Prize in the Design category of the International Water Association Project Innovation Awards 2006 and has achieved various awards for its innovation and sustainability.
