JEC Takes Part in Tseung Kwan O Desalination Plant Stage I Project

JEC with its joint venture partners was recently awarded the contract from the Water Supplies Department to design, build and operate the first stage of Tseung Kwan O Desalination Plant.

Building on a 8-hectare site, the first stage of construction targets a water production capacity at 135,000m3 per day with provision for future expansion to the ultimate water production capacity up to 270,000m3 per day and associated facilities. The product water will be transferred via a fresh water main to the existing Tseung Kwan O Fresh Water Primary Service Reservoir.

The desalination plant will adopt reverse osmosis technology to produce potable water complying with the Hong Kong Drinking Water Standards under local conditions. It is expected to commence operation in 2023, providing the city with a strategic water resource which is not susceptible to the impact of climate change.
