GE, Singapore University to Set Up Technology Center

GE Water, a business unit of GE Energy, and the National University of Singapore (NUS) announced that they have signed an agreement to establish the NUS-GE Singapore Water Technology Center on the campus of NUS, according to a March 19 press release.

Together, GE and NUS are investing US$100 million (SGD$150 million) in the NUS-GE Singapore Water Technology Center. The center will house GE scientists and engineers who will develop new solutions for low-energy seawater desalination, water reclamation, and more efficient water reuse. The facility and its state-of-the-art equipment are expected to be fully operational by mid-2009.

"This center is a reflection of our growing partnership with GE and Singapore’s standing as a global hydro hub. We welcome GE’s efforts to continue leveraging the vibrant ecosystem here to commercialize the innovations from the water R&D center, including the use of Singapore to test-bed and demonstrate new-generation water technologies," says Manohar Khiatani, deputy managing director, Economic Development Board and deputy executive director, Environment & Water Industry Development Council.

“Establishing the NUS-GE Singapore Water Technology Center will enhance our ability to develop the most advanced water technologies that the world needs,” says Heiner Markhoff, president and chief executive officer of GE Water.
