Singapore-based EPC contractor Hyflux Ltd is negotiating with its financiers to find up to Sing$ 800 million (US$ 650 million) in bridging loans to fund construction of Singapore’s Tuaspring desalination plant and a 400 MW gas-fired power plant, according to IFRAsia on 31 May 2011.

Banks involved reported to be ANZ, BNP Paribas, Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ, DBS Bank, Mizuho Corporate Bank and Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corp
