ST Engg unit wins $125m DSTA contract
ST Engineering’s wholly owned integrated services arm ST Synthesis has secured a five-year contract worth about $125 million from Singapore’s Defence Science & Technology Agency (DSTA).
The contract, which begins this month, will see ST Synthesis provide facilities maintenance services to the Singapore Ministry of Defence (Mindef) controlled properties and facilities.
‘Security sensitivity, integrated, end-to-end operation and essential support capabilities offered on a 24/7 basis are of paramount importance in managing essential and intensive infrastructure of controlled properties and facilities,’ said Goh Lik Kok, general manager of ST Synthesis.
ST Synthesis, whose expertise includes preventive equipment maintenance and critical asset preservation, will provide maintenance services on the buildings’ infrastructure, mechanical and electrical equipment and systems for various properties including camps and military installations.
The mechanical and electrical equipment includes power generators, transformers and switchgears, electrical distribution systems, mechanical ventilation and airconditioning systems, lightning protection systems, earthing systems and fire alarms, and detection and protection systems as well as security surveillance and access control systems.
‘ST Synthesis is proud that we are able to leverage our expertise to provide comprehensive maintenance services to Mindef,’ said Mr Goh.
ST Synthesis has substantial experience in handling key installations and managing security sensitive complexes, infrastructures and facilities in Singapore.
Its maintenance contracts include the $6.5 million management and maintenance of essential equipment for Tuas Marine Transfer Station and Semakau Landfill, awarded by the National Environment Agency in January 2010.
The company was also awarded in July 2009 the $26.5 million Land Transport Authority contract for the comprehensive maintenance of Kallang Paya Lebar Expressway.
