PUB, Singapore’s National Water Agency, has launched three Requests for Proposals (RFPs) under the Competitive Research Programme (Water) to develop and translate water technologies to enhance resource efficiencies, specifically energy, water and operational efficiencies.
In line with PUB’s effort to translate water technologies, the three RFPs aim to encourage industry technology providers and researchers to build on existing innovative technologies that can address industry challenges and develop them into commercial products that will meet operational needs through testing under actual operating conditions.
PUB has launched the following Requests-for-Proposals (RFP) on 03 January 2018, 5:00 pm (Singapore time, GMT +08:00):
CRP(Water) Request-For-Proposal (RFP 18/01) – Directed Call on Enhancing Energy Efficiency in Water and Used Water Treatment Processes through Technology Translation
This RFP targets two specific approaches in enhancing energy efficiency of water and used water treatment processes:
CRP(Water) Request-For-Proposal (RFP 18/02) – Directed Call on Enhancing Water Efficiency through Industrial Water Solutions
The main objective of this RFP is to enhance water efficiency through water consumption reduction of at least 300 m3/day or 5% of the water consumption, whichever is higher, within industries through water recycling or reduction.
CRP(Water) Request-For-Proposal (RFP 18/03) – Directed Call on Enhancing Operational Efficiency through Smart Technologies
The main objective of this RFP is to enhance operational efficiency by leveraging on smart technologies (such as robotics, drones, automation, data analytics and informatics, video analytics, etc) to minimise manpower required in PUB’s operation and maintenance.
The deadline for the proposal submission to all 3 RFPs above is 13 March 2018, 16:00 pm (Singapore time, GMT +08:00). Please refer to the Factsheet in the application website (See Proceed to Details below) for full details on these submission guidelines and evaluation criteria.
PUB held the RFP 1801-1803 Information Session on 26 January 2018. This session provided information on the three RFPs i.e. 1801, 1802 and 1803, where up to S$30 million is set aside to develop projects in water and used water treatment, industrial water solutions and smart technologies. The briefing information can be found on the application website.
