French environmental services provider Suez has received two contracts worth a total value of €10.8m ($11.9m) in South East Asia to manage water resources.

Suez was selected by PUB, Singapore’s national water agency for real-time monitoring and optimisation of reservoir and catchment operations for the next four years.

The contract is part of the Smart PUB Roadmap that targets to meet Singapore’s future water needs and water resources management optimisation through comprehensive digitalisation. The second contract will provide drinking water to 400,000 residents in Malaysia’s Terengganu State.

The Singapore contract will strengthen the collaboration between PUB and Suez, which began in 2015 to share know-how and jointly develop technologies to protect water resources and tackle the challenges of water scarcity and flooding in the city-state.

Suez to extend AQUADVANCED Urban Drainage across Singapore

For the contract in Singapore, Suez will extend its AQUADVANCED Urban Drainage to the entire city state. Earlier it was deployed in 2016, for the Marina Catchment.

The solution offers real-time situational awareness within the Marina Catchment using weather information and field sensor data in the network. Suez claims that the solution can analyse the data to anticipate the level and flow within the network and offer decision support to PUB.

For the contract won in Malaysia, Suez will supply two drinking water production plants UCD to meet the increasing consumption demands of the population in the Terengganu State in the eastern part of the Peninsula. The plants are expected to be installed by the middle of next year and will produce 64,000m³/day of drinking water, to be supplied to 400,000 residents.

Suez AMEI/Asia/Australia Group International Consulting, Indus. Key Accounts senior executive vice president Ana Giros Calpe said: “These contracts illustrate well our ambition to conquer new markets through high-performance and modular solutions adapted to our customers’ needs. Our digital technologies deployed in Singapore will enable authorities to make the city-state a model of sustainability and resiliency.

“In Malaysia, our solution UCD will provide essential services to face increasing water consumption demands of the population. By strengthening our presence in South-East Asia today, we are also demonstrating the strong international dynamic supporting SUEZ 2030 strategic plan.”

Last month, the company had won three new contracts to improve performance of water distribution systems. and landfill maintenance in the Middle East.
