Hong Kong’s Secretary for the Environment, Mr Wong Kam-sing, led a delegation visit to the Keppel Seghers Tuas Waste-to-Energy (WTE) plant on 17 May 2013 as part of a trip to Singapore to learn about the country’s policies and efforts in promoting energy efficiency and waste management. He was hosted by Mr Loh Ah Tuan, Consultant to Keppel Seghers.
During Mr Wong’s visit to the plant, the first of its kind built under the Public-Private- Partnership in Singapore and one of the most compact WTE plants in the world, he exchanged with Mr Loh some pointers on WTE technologies and the relationship between private operators and public agencies in Singapore’s waste management sector.
Mr Wong was also given a tour of the plant, where he was introduced to the plant’s efficient, clean and safe operations, run by a lean team.
As part of his visit to Singapore, Mr Wong Kam-sing had also met with Singapore’s Minister for the Environment and Water Resources, Dr Vivian Balakrishnan, and the Chairperson of the National Environment Agency, Ms Chew Gek Khim, to exchange views on environmental protection policies including energy efficiency, nature conservation and waste management.
