Desalination Plant Tuas 3
The population growth experienced by Singapore has significantly increased the city's consumption of drinking water.
Tedagua, a company belonging to the Cobra Group, with experience in the design, manufacture, operation, maintenance and engineering of desalination plants, was commissioned to carry out the Tuas 3 desalination plant project in Singapore.
The geographical dispersion of the different work teams, as well as the large volume of information and documents that are handled daily on a project of such magnitude, caused Tedagua to decide to implement think project! as a collaboration tool together with its partner on the project, HSL Constructor Pte Ltd.
The project's configuration is based on the management of information (deliverables) and their internal distribution. It also incorporates Outlook Connect for the storage and classification of all emails related to the project (approximately 30,000 to date).
Tuas 3 is the first project that Tedagua has entrusted to think project! to standardise work processes and information management, both internally and with collaborators. These already implemented improvements have been increasing as the configuration of the Tedagua projects has required it, today possessing a very broad functional scope on projects around the world.
Currently, desalinated water satisfies a quarter of the water demand in Singapore. With the construction of this third plant, Tuas 3, and a fourth scheduled for 2020, it is expected to cover 30% of the water needs in Singapore by 2060.

City invests in the development of a new Metro line
ALPINE was awarded the contract for two sections of the second expansion phase of the Downtown Line of the Singapore Metro.
|Planned completion: 2015|
|Construction volume of the two contracts: 332 million euros|
|Line length: 40 kilometres|
|New Metro stations: 33|
Singapore already has a well-developed city public transport system. The MRT (driverless Metro) is the fastest and cheapest method of transport in Singapore. To improve daily commuter traffic, the city is now investing in the development of a new Metro line. With a length of 40 kilometres and 33 stations, passengers will be able to travel directly from the north-west and east of the city to the centre, relieving the burden on the city's road network.
Alpine BeMo Tunnelling was awarded two contracts for the Metro as part of the expansion of the Downtown Line construction phase 2. Construction work on the 40-kilometre long, underground Downtown Line will be carried out in three stages. By 2020, the total length of the Metro will stretch to 278 kilometres.
For the development of the Downtown Line in Singapore, the project team decided to use the online project collaboration platform think project!. The platform supports collaboration between the international project participants over great distances and different time zones, and ensures structured project communication and documentation.
