Singapore Infrastructure Report

BMI View: We continue to expect construction and infrastructure growth in Singapore to moderate over the 2014-2020 period. Real growth for the construction sector is forecast to slow from 5.9% in 2014 to 3.0% in 2019, while real growth for the infrastructure sector is expected to fall from 12.7% in 2014 to 4.0% in 2019. This moderation is primarily due to declining housing demand, longer construction periods for planned infrastructure projects and a poor export outlook, which could curb investment in non-residential buildings.

Key Trends And Developments

  • In May 2014, four contracts worth about SGD1.1bn were awarded by the Land Transport Authority (LTA). These four contracts involve the construction of four train stations (with associated tunnels) for the Thomson Mass Rapid Transit Line (MRT) in Singapore. The four train stations - namely the Orchard Boulevard station, Great World station, Outram Park station and Shenton Way station - were awarded to Singapore's KTC Civil Engineering & Construction, a joint venture (JV) between Singapore's Tiong Seng Contractor and South Korea's Dongah Geological Engineering, South Korea's Daelim Industrial, and China's Shanghai Tunnel Engineering. These contracts are scheduled to start construction works in Q214 and be completed by 2021.

  • In June 2014, the first power plant in Singapore to be fully fuelled by liquefied natural gas (LNG) started operations. The 800MW combined-cycle gas-fired power plant cost SGD1.2bn (USD955mn) to build and is operated by Singapore-based PacificLight Power, a 70:30 JV between FPM Power Holdings and Malaysia's Petronas Power. FPM Power Holdings is a JV between Philippines' largest electricity utility, Manila Electric (Meralco) and Hong Kong-listed First Pacific. The plant will be the largest consumer of LNG in the country, accounting for about a quarter of LNG supply procured by Singapore's sole operating LNG terminal. The 800MW facility will contribute about 6% of Singapore's...
