Sembcorp Drives First Pile for its Largest Industrial Wastewater Treatment Plant on Jurong Island
- Expansion into the new growth area of Jurong Island takes shape

SIWW, Singapore, July 4, 2011 - (ACN Newswire) - Sembcorp is pleased to announce that the company has achieved a significant milestone in its expansion into the new growth area of Jurong Island, with the first pile of the Sembcorp integrated wastewater treatment plant at Banyan being driven into the ground today.

Expected to commence operations in the second half of 2012, the 9,600 cubic metres per day industrial wastewater treatment plant capable of treating multiple streams of complex industrial wastewater, will more than double Sembcorp's current industrial wastewater treatment hydraulic capacity on the island. The facility will be able to treat industrial wastewater with concentration of up to 800 milligrammes per litre chemical oxygen demand (COD), which is approximately twice more concentrated than municipal wastewater. With an investment cost of approximately S$40 million through internal funding, the facility will serve industrial customers including LANXESS and Jurong Aromatics Corporation (JAC), in the Banyan, Tembusu and Angsana districts of Jurong Island.

The Sembcorp integrated wastewater treatment plant will complement the new multi-utilities facility to be developed at the petrochemical hub. Similar to Sembcorp's existing multi-utilities centre on the island's Sakra district, the new facilities will provide the integrated supply of steam, water and industrial water and wastewater treatment services. In addition, the company will also be developing a new combined-cycle gas turbine cogeneration plant in the area which will have a capacity of 400 megawatts of power and 200 tonnes per hour of process steam in its initial phase.

Mr Tang Kin Fei, Group President & CEO of Sembcorp Industries, said, "We are pleased that construction has started for our new wastewater treatment facility at Banyan. Together with our established facilities at Sakra, we will serve a total of 16 industrial wastewater treatment customers on Jurong Island, and continue to provide almost 100% of the petrochemical hub's outsourced industrial wastewater treatment requirements. As a global leader in the provision of industrial wastewater treatment solutions catered to the specialised needs of chemical and petrochemical industries, we are looking forward to serving the new wave of customers setting up operations on Jurong Island."

Sembcorp is a well-established provider of third party outsourced utilities in the Sakra and Seraya districts of Jurong Island. The company has supplied a full range of energy, water and on-site logistics and services to chemical and petrochemical manufacturers on the island for over a decade, and is a pioneer in the treatment of multiple streams of high concentration and complex industrial wastewater. Sembcorp also operates energy and water facilities serving customers in five chemical manufacturing and industrial sites in China, as well as on the Wilton International site in Teesside, UK.
