The successful completion of the landmark SingSpring Desalination Plant boosted Hyflux’s profile and visibility in the global water industry. The project won the distinction in the Desalination Plant of the Year category at the Global Water Awards 2006. Hyflux was also named Water Company of the Year.
In 2004, Hyflux was awarded the contract to design, build, own and operate a SWRO desalination plant on 30-year concession in the Dagang District of Tianjin in northern China.
The company established a new footprint in the Middle East North Africa (MENA) region when it secured the first project in Algeria in 2006 – a 200,000m3/day SWRO desalination plant with a 25-year concession located in Tlemcen.
In the same year, Hyflux ventured into India.
In 2008, amidst intense global competition with international players, the company won an international tender to build Africa’s largest SWRO desalination plant in Magtaa, Algeria, which would add 500,000m3/day of water supply to the country when fully operational.
In 2009, Hyflux expanded its presence in the MENA region with a contract to design and supply a desalination plant for the Salalah Independent Water and Power Project in Oman.
