A Story of Collaboration, Vision of Renewable Energy
Cardinal Point Wind
Meet Cardinal Point Wind, a sprawling wind farm that’s testament to the zero-carbon development vision of Canada-based Capital Power, the project’s owner. And it’s symbolic of the collaboration and trust between that wholesale power generator and Black & Veatch, a global renewable energy solutions leader that stepped up to the challenge of erecting the farm.
Fast-tracked facility ensures reliable, sustainable data center operations
Data Center Industrial Reuse Water Treatment Plant

Uninterrupted service is at the heart of successful data center operations. To operate reliably data centers require a stable temperature. Central to ensuring a stable temperature is a reliable supply of high-quality water for the cooling system.

In the upper Northwest of the U.S., we are helping ensure seamless data center service by providing water of sufficient quality and quantity to cool more than 60 megawatts of major data center companies’ server farms.

Promoting a city’s water sustainability and resilience
Paso Robles Wastewater Treatment Plant

Paso Robles always discharged its treated effluent into California’s Salinas River. That is until changing influent and prolonged drought conditions spurred improvements at the city’s wastewater treatment plant. The plant now reclaims previously wasted resources, showcasing a sustainable and cost-effective approach to water quality and water supply resilience.

Unique assessment advances commercial viability of tidal energy

Tidal stream energy could theoretically supply more than 150 terawatt hours per annum globally. This represents a potential total global market of up to 50 gigawatts (GW) of generating capacity.

Tidal stream energy is a significant renewable energy source because, although it varies, the power output is highly  predictable. As a result, it can help to balance supply and demand as part of a balanced energy mix alongside other renewable sources such as wind and solar power.

Maximising environmental and social value through innovative integration of landscape design, natural capital accounting and interactive mapping
Connecting Burton and the Trent Washlands: A New Vision

With climate change placing increasing pressure on budgets for flood alleviation schemes, and other measures to increase resilience, it is vital clients can access innovative funding models to ensure communities are protected. It’s equally vital that such projects engage fully with the people they protect and create a legacy that provides multiple, sustainable benefits for the community.

Water Reuse Provides Cost Savings to City, Avocado Farmers
Water Reuse Provides Cost Savings to City, Avocado Farmers teaser image
The city of Escondido, Calif., had too much wastewater and not enough potable water. A 15-mile pipeline that carries treated wastewater from Escondido to the ocean almost overflowed during storms in 2010. More urgently, the aging pipeline was near capacity, no longer big enough to handle the city's growing needs.
