Grundfos has signed an agreement with Singapore’s National Water Agency, PUB, committing to the joint development of innovative wastewater solutions.
The agreement was signed as part of Singapore International Water Week, and represents a significant step for the two companies in the endeavour to deliver the best products and the best service to all their customers. The two companies promised to share their expertise and jointly develop new, sustainable wastewater solutions, as well as refining those already in play.
“The research collaboration with Grundfos will allow us to tap on Grundfos’ strength in the development of pump solutions for water treatment, and at the same time explore collaborations in new areas where Grundfos is venturing to, such as used water treatment,” said Mr. Harry Seah, PUB’s Chief Technology Officer.
PUB and Grundfos aim to research – and develop – sustainable solutions for water treatment, such as improving disinfection technologies for wastewater treatment. The two companies have also agreed to work out new ways of integrating pumps in water treatment and developing new, energy efficient solutions for the water companies’ distribution networks.
“With the agreement with PUB we get the opportunity to cooperate with a major, public company on solving some of the water challenges we face. A successful collaboration between the private and the public sector gives us an excellent platform for further work. Together, we can create advanced solutions which ensures growth and takes the planet into account as well”, says Poul Due Jensen, Regional Managing Director for the Asia-Pacific region in Grundfos.
Signing the MOU on behalf of the two organisations were Mr Tan Yok Gin, Deputy Chief Executive (Operations) of PUB, and Mr Poul Due Jensen. Singapore’s Environment and Water Resources Minister, Dr Vivian Balakrishnan, and the Danish Environment Minister, Mrs Kirsten Brosbøl, were present at the signing ceremony.
