Singapore’s First Ceramic Membrane Waterworks
—Introducing CeraMac® System of PWNT, METAWATER’s Strategic Alliance Partner in the Netherlands—
METAWATER Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Tokyo, Japan; President: Tomoyasu Kida; hereinafter referred to as "METAWATER") is pleased to announce that the CeraMac® system of its strategic alliance partner, PWN Technologies (Headquarters: Velserbroek, Netherlands; CEO: Jonathan Clement; hereinafter referred to as "PWNT"), has been selected for the Choa Chu Kang Waterworks (hereinafter referred to as “CCKWW”) ordered by Singapore’s national water agency, the Public Utility Board. The CCKWW will be the first waterworks in Singapore to use ceramic membrane treatment technology and is also one of the largest ceramic membrane plants in the world. Based on the alliance with PWNT, METAWATER will provide ceramic membranes for the CeraMac® system.
METAWATER formed a strategic alliance* with PWNT in June 2013 aimed at jointly expanding the global market of the CeraMac® system. The two companies have developed business activities based on the alliance. METAWATER provided ceramic membranes for a long-term trial of the CeraMac® system demonstration plant at CCKWW, contributing to validating the system’s efficiency and reliability. A decision was made to introduce the CeraMac® system to CCKWW and local media reported that METAWATER will deliver ceramic membranes. This will be the second case for METAWATER to deliver ceramic membranes for the CeraMac® system following the water treatment plant Andijk III in the Netherlands.
In the medium-term business plan formulated in May 2015, METAWATER has positioned the overseas segment as its growth field and aims to expand business in its strategic areas of North America and Europe while making efforts to build a business base in Asia and other regions through public and private partnerships.
