Toshiba Infrastructure Systems & Solutions Corporation (TISS) will be exhibiting at Singapore International Water Week (SIWW), and UEM India Pvt Ltd (UEM), a Toshiba Group company based in India, will show how Toshiba can contribute to safe and secure water resources.
Access to clean potable water is a growing concern as rural populations continue to flow into cities, especially in developing countries. As the World Bank has noted, urban water demand is expected to increase by 50 per cent over the next 30 years, and meeting that demand and securing sustainable water solutions will require secure infrastructure, new technologies, and a lot of innovation.
TISS has about 50 years of experience in making more water available through conservation, purification, recycling and reusing. The group has been an active contributor of engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services for municipalities and industries in around 40 countries, in an effort to optimise the efficiency of the various water distribution networks.
UEM will also demonstrate TISS’s capabilities in turnkey services for water and wastewater collection, treatment and disposal. As a core company of TISS’s water treatment and engineering business, UEM is developing a global business with a focus on Asia, Africa, Central America and the Middle East.
Some recent successes it will feature include an EPC contract for a new water reclamation facility in the Philippines expected that is to be ready by 2020. With over 350 projects across 35 countries, UEM is well-positioned to deploy its technologies and expertise from planning, designing and construction of water treatment equipment to operation management and maintenance.
The Toshiba group will also showcase an extensive range of solution offerings for water treatment companies and general contractors seeking to build collaborations in this region. Access to drinking water is now made more accessible with TISS’s TGOGS™ ozone generation system which disinfects water and breaks down organic compounds that cause colour, taste and odour.
TISS’s Zero Liquid Discharge system, based on HERO™ technology, incorporates a highly efficient reverse osmosis (RO) technology that optimises recycling and reuse of wastewater, and the system delivers a recovery rate of over 95 per cent. In addition, TISS’s Internet of Things (IoT) solutions will allow the visualisation of required data and enable optimum operation and maintenance of water treatment plants.
