Black & Veatch joins Eight2O alliance

NCE stock water

Black & Veatch has joined Thames Water’s Eight2O alliance via the Costain and Atkins design-build joint venture called CABV.

The joint venture works on new builds such as wastewater treatment facilities from the design and construction through to commissioning. Initial projects involve leakage reduction, flooding prevention and energy efficiency measures. Black & Veatch will contribute by utilising its ASSET360 tool to provide real-time data analysis.

Black & Veatch Europe managing director Scott Aitken said: “By providing expertise and tools for gathering and analysing data in real time we help support data and insight-driven service improvements that benefit Thames Water’s customers.

“Efficiency, affordability, customer service and competition are among UK water companies’ greatest challenges. Data is the common thread in meeting these challenges: more data, better data and, most importantly, better data analysis to allow better informed decisions.”

Thames Water’s new chief executive Steve Robertson added: “The company’s expertise and capability will make a vital contribution to delivering the objectives of the eight2O alliance.”
