DWTH is Currently Collaborating with PUB, Singapore’s National Water Agency on Technology Roadmap

5 Oct 2016

DWTH is currently collaborating with PUB, Singapore’s National Water Agency, to map and identify Danish water companies that align with PUB’s technological roadmap.

 

PUB has always been at the forefront of adopting the latest technologies to advance Singapore’s water infrastructure to improve the nation’s water security, as well as to develop Singapore into a global water hub. As the leading agency for these initiatives, PUB understands that it cannot develop the water sector alone and needs helps from industry players around the world.

Through collaboration with DWTH, synergies will be created whereby PUB will be able to gain access to the latest Danish water technologies to support its drive in advancing Singapore’s water infrastructure and to develop its industry. At the same time, using Singapore as a reference, Danish companies will be able to establish their presence in the much larger and rapidly growing SE Asia market.

Why work with PUB?
Singapore is known for its efficiency, transparency and ease of doing business, and in PUB, it is no different. PUB has a clearly defined strategy and technological roadmap for its development and the Singapore government has recently set aside S$200 million (~974 million DKK) for funding water research in the next 5 years, as part of Singapore’s National Research Innovation and Enterprise 2020 (RIE2020) initiative. In fact, PUB will be launching an Open Request for Proposal (RFP) for Water Technologies next week.

Additionally, to aid the development of the water industry, PUB will be working with other government agencies and in this case, DWTH, to bring the latest Danish water technologies into Singapore. This will be achieved via various means, such as through upcoming PUB projects, setting up local branch offices, forming partnerships with Singapore companies (joint-ventures, technology licensing, etc.), setting up distributorships, etc.

An example of a successful collaboration between PUB and a Danish company will be Mycometer, a Danish company specializing in products providing rapid assessment of microbes. Its products had been evaluated by PUB and will soon be implemented in throughout the water supply network of Singapore – see more here.
