Cimic subsidiary Leighton Asia has won a US$107m (A$160m) contract to rebuild Singapore’s Choa Chu Kang Waterworks, the country’s second biggest, for the National Water Agency.

The plant was built between 1975 and 1981 to supply 80 million gallons a day to the western part of Singapore.

The plan is to expand it and upgrade water treatment technology.

Leighton Asia will provide mechanical, electrical, instrumentation, control and automation works, building services, civil and temporary works, services, testing and commissioning, and plant-proving of the reconstructed plant.

“We are pleased that our capabilities in modernising water treatment infrastructure will help to meet the water needs of Singapore’s growing population,” said Juan Santamaria, Cimic executive chairman.

Work is due to begin in the second quarter of 2024 and scheduled to complete by 2028.
