More goes into infrastructure than you think, but you can’t miss the difference it makes in the world. Black & Veatch makes the Invisible, Invaluable.
We are an employee-owned engineering, procurement, consulting and construction company with a 100-year legacy of innovations in critical infrastructure. Since the 1960s we have been delivering critical infrastructure projects across Africa.
We work with Africa’s developers, national power companies and independent power producers providing services that add value across every point in the asset lifecycle – resource assessments right through to EPC delivery. We are also supporting global businesses investing in African countries. As African nations seek to decarbonize we are moving the focus of our work from conventional generation to solar and wind projects – delivering our first African wind-power project, in South Africa, more than a decade ago.
Whether renewable or conventional, our projects draw upon world-class expertise from throughout our global business, always tailored to local needs. Where possible we seek to put local contractors, subcontractors and suppliers to work to increase local content, improve employment, and progress local capabilities. In addition we deploy proven training programs that equip the local workforce with technical and other skills for long-term success.
Let's talk and find ways we can help you achieve your goals.
