Riding on the success of the Royal Danish Embassy’s push for Danish water technologies showcase at the Singapore International Water Week in June 2014, and the signing of MOU between the Danish and Singapore Ministry of Environment, the Danish Water Technology House (DWTH) is finally officially opened in Singapore.
Present at the press conference are Royal Danish Embassy, Danish Ambassador to Singapore, HE Berit Basse, The Fresh Water Centre, Danish Water Technology House Singapore, The Danish Industry Foundation, Aquaporin and Singapore water agency, Public Utilities Board (PUB). The group was also given a tour at Public Utilities Board’s WaterHub, with houses state-of-the-art water testing facilities and equipment.
DWTH comprises of a group of Danish companies with expertise in various aspects of water technology. Danish Water Technology House (DWTH) is a non-profit representative organisation of Danish water companies based in Singapore. DWTH brings together Danish water technology for the mutual benefit of clients and local partners, serving as a technology partner and a centre of information, marketing and sales of Danish water technology & know-how for Southeast Asia.
Water has always been a hot topic. In Singapore, this is even more so as it seeks to find new ways to harness water for the future generation. The Singapore government has put together a strategic partnership and infrastructure which allows for water technology companies to tap into the skilled work force, education and research as well as research funding. Denmark has been identified as an important benchmark and case study for Public Utilities Board, the water agency in Singapore.
Danish companies which expertise in water technology can certainly consider riding on the MOU that both countries have established, to tap into Singapore’s strategic growth as a hydrohub for the Asia region.
