SP Group To Roll Out Singapore’s First Large-scale Smart Water Metering System

Singapore, 15 April 2021 – SP Group (SP) will roll out Singapore’s first large-scale smart water metering project following the award by National Water Agency PUB to supply, install and manage some 300,000 smart water meters across seven locations1 island-wide. The contract was awarded to SP Services Limited, a subsidiary of SP Group, through an open tender exercise.

With SP operating and maintaining Singapore’s current smart electricity metering system, the award of this approximately S$123.7 million smart water metering project will forge synergies in creating a smart utility and grid of the future.

This smart water metering project consists of two parts. In the first, SP will supply and install smart water meters to 300,000 households and businesses in Singapore from early 2022, as well as develop and set up the wireless communications network and supporting IT systems for the retrieval and management of water meter data.

In the second part, SP will also be responsible for the operations and maintenance of the smart water metering system for 15 years, including operations support, cloud-hosted system maintenance, metering field services and network communications services.

Mr Stanley Huang, Group CEO, SP Group, said: “In deploying a smart water metering system for Singapore, SP Group is building on our track record in establishing and operating our nation’s island-wide smart electricity metering system. Coupled with our long-standing partnership with PUB, we are well-positioned to enhance the value of services to customers and contribute to advancing Singapore’s smart nation initiative across all utilities services.”

With smart water meters, customers can access near real-time consumption data to better manage and make decisions in respect of their water usage. Currently, customers on the nationwide smart electricity meter network are already benefitting from this feature. To date, SP has installed more than 500,0002 smart electricity meters across Singapore and is on track to complete installation for all 1.4 million households by 2024.

The smart water meters will connect wirelessly to SP’s existing Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) to transmit meter information. SP can also leverage its existing AMI network to scale up future deployment of the smart water meters.

1 The seven locations are Bukit Batok, Hougang, Jurong West, Tampines, Tuas and new towns Tampines North and Tengah.
