Singapore-listed Yoma Strategic Holdings Ltd has opened a potable water plant at Pun Hlaing Golf Estate in Yangon to deliver drinking water to the taps of residents of the estate.
The development will see Pun Hlaing Golf Estate as the first real estate development in Myanmar to have its own Hyflux water treatment plant. Hyflux is a Singaporean water solutions provider which designed and supplied the facility.
The plant uses Hyflux’s proprietary Kristal ultrafiltration technology and brackish water reverse osmosis technology, Yoma said.
It is designed with a treatment capacity of 1,000 cubic metres per day, and is expandable to 2,500 m3/day providing a constant production of potable water.
Cyrus Pun, executive director and head of real estate, said, “Yoma Strategic has always been committed to offering an international standard of living at the Pun Hlaing Golf Estate and making it the best preferred place to live in Myanmar.
“Providing access to clean and safe drinking water is essential to this and we’re pleased that we can offer our residents such a high standard of drinking water, giving them peace of mind.”
According to Hyflux, water produced at the potable water plant “significantly exceeds the World Health Organisation’s Water Guidelines.”
Pun Hlaing Golf Estate recently saw the completion of the Bayintnaung bridge, which the firm claims increases accessibility to the real estate development.
Yoma Strategic also recently opened sales of its Lotus Garden Place Villas, a cluster of 30 semi-detached residences with terraces and gardens. It is part of three Lotus-branded developments within the Pun Hlaing Golf Estate which are due to be completed in two stages in 2015.
