This memorandum further reinforces the partnership agreement, signed in May 2015, for three research projects on the subjects of Smart Water and energy-efficient water technologies, contributing to water sustainability efforts.
“SUEZ environnement is glad to work with PUB in the co-creation of sustainable water solutions. Singapore, apart from being the economic and business centre in South-East Asia, is also renowned for its rich experiences in water industry and strong commitment to sustainably managing its resources. As a consequence, SUEZ environnement has chosen Singapore as its regional business hub with the opening of an Innovation Center, composed of 15 research scientists and engineers, to support, through innovation, projects development in Singapore. Strategically, this marks an important step for SUEZ environnement’s further development in whole South-East Asia.”stated Jean-Louis Chaussade, CEO of SUEZ environnement.
