Desalination Plant Tuas 3

Desalination Plant Tuas 3

The population growth experienced by Singapore has significantly increased the city's consumption of drinking water.

Project profile

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.
