Marina Barrage 10th Anniversary Celebration

06 Jun 2018

PUB, Singapore’s water agency, invited SP students for a Technical Tour of Marina Barrage on 9 May 2018 in conjunction with its 10th Anniversary Celebration. The visiting group consists of three (3) DCEB teaching staff and seventy-one (71) students of the following background: -

  • Year 3 Diploma in Civil Engineering with Business (DCEB) students taking Green Building Technology module;
  • Year 2 students from various diploma courses taking the Diploma Plus Certificate Programme in Sustainability course;
  • Year 1 & 2 Diploma in Civil Engineering with Business students.

The tour started with a briefing by Mr. Noorazman Noorain, General Manager (Marina Barrage).  He explained the history of water management in Singapore and the land reclamation works around the Marina Bay area, resulting in the need to construct the Marina Barrage with three (3) key purposes of flood control, water supply and a lifestyle attraction in downtown Singapore.

Subsequently, the main group was divided into three smaller groups for the technical tour of the various facilities such as crest gates and pump stations.  Such tours have provided students with a more in depth knowledge of the technicalities of various facilities installed at Marina Barrage. The tour ended off with a boat tour of the Marina Reservoir, allowing the group to appreciate the scenic view of the Marina Bay. We wish Marina Barrage a happy 10th Anniversary with many more great years to come!
