SINGAPORE, June 29, 2012 - (ACN Newswire) - ELGA LabWater, global laboratory water brand of Veolia Water Solutions & Technologies, the world's leading water technology and service company has been awarded the contract to supply and install an ultra-pure water production system and innovative duplex distribution loop over 2 buildings and 6 different floors for the new Singapore General Hospital (SGH) expansion.
The Singapore General Hospital was established in 1821 and is Singapore's oldest and largest tertiary acute hospital with more than 1,500 beds and 8,200 employees. A new expansion project includes a new building which will host the Pathology, Research and Biochemistry departments of SGH.
Supplying the main contractor, Taikisha, Veolia Water Solutions & Technologies Singapore in collaboration with Chemoscience will install 12 CENTRA(R) and 4 MEDICA(R) units across the 13-storey building. The innovative solution delivers consistent purified water ensuring uptime for critical services such as pathology. Veolia will also provide a professional service to ensure the performance of the entire life of the system with experts in-house and field service support.
"By leveraging on the strong capabilities of the Veolia local team and the global expertise of ELGA, we offered a customized and greener solution to SGH allowing reduced water consumption. This new project reinforces our position as expert in delivering smart water solutions to hospitals" said Laurent Besson, General Manager of Veolia Water Solutions & Technologies Singapore.
Completion of the expansion project is anticipated by August 2012.
CENTRA(R) is a complete water purification, storage and distribution system packaged into a single unit. The CENTRA(R) design overcomes the limitations of traditional central water purification systems to deliver consistent water purity, flexibility and economy. It is suitable for a range of applications requiring type I, type II and type III water.
MEDICA(R) water purification systems are specifically designed for use with clinical analysers. ELGA LabWater's years of experience and the use of the latest multi-technology processes encompassing reverse osmosis, deionisation, photo-oxidation and microfiltration, ensure that MEDICA(R) systems cost-effectively and efficiently deliver a feed of purified water with the high reliability that healthcare environments demand.
