Xylem to supply pumps for Singapore mass transit project

The US water technology company will supply a range of water handling equipment, including Flygt submersible drainage pumps, Lowara eSV booster pump sets, WEDECO Spektron UV disinfection units and associated level regulators and control panels for the entire pumping systems for stages 2 and 3 of Singapore's Downtown Line Mass Rapid Transit project. The train line, which is scheduled for completion in 2017, will be 42 kms long with 34 stations.

“We are very proud to be part of this latest infrastructure expansion where our products are being utilized in both the construction and operational phase,” said Allan Hendry, vice president and regional director for Xylem Greater Asia.

Xylem has been partnering with the Singapore Land Transport Authority since 1984, with more than 1000 Flygt submersible pumps, Lowara pump sets, and WEDECO UV systems working for the country’s transportation infrastructure, including transit lines, train stations, tunnels, and expressways.
