Jacobs designs the Changi NEWater reclamation plant in Singapore with FR-RO Technology

Featured in WaterWorld Magazine, Jacobs, a leading international engineering company was selected by PUB – Sinagapore’s National Water Agency, to design and supervise construction and commissioning of one of the largest and most advanced water reclamation plants worldwide. Jacobs chose ROTEC to implement its unique Flow Reversal (FR-RO) technology, taking recovery and water reuse to the highest level and helping the plant become a resilient water source.

The plant, Changi NEWater Factory 3 (CNF3), is the third NEWater plant to be located at the Changi Water Reclamation Plant (WRP). CNF3 incorporates ROTEC’s proprietary FR-RO technology in the design of the RO solution.

A number of individuals were interviewed for the WaterWorld article, about new developments at the Changi NEWater water treatment plant.

Jacobs Chair & CEO Steve Demetriou stated: “Using a holistic, integrated approach not only helps Singapore address its water needs but offers possible solutions for other countries around the world facing similar water security challenges. The CNF3 project is yet another way Jacobs is addressing climate response and sustainability through innovative design.”

Noam Perlmuter, ROTEC CEO added: “We are delighted to continue our working relationship with PUB and Jacobs by incorporating ROTEC’s proprietary flow reversal technology into the design of CNF3. Maintaining sustainable flux through RO membranes by inhibiting mineral scaling and limiting bio-fouling potential is the key to reducing energy consumption and maximizing water recovery. This is good for PUB, Singapore, and the planet.”
