Felixstowe Coastal Defence Project Suffolk, United Kingdom Existing coastal defences at Felixstowe were nearing the end of their useful life, with many of the groynes no longer effective at retaining the sand on the beach. This led to lowering of the beach and undermining of the seawall. Black & Veatch provided the detailed design and site supervision work for the improved coastal defences.

The project was located on a rock hillside and in a difficult marine wave environment. Black & Veatch was selected to lead a global alliance to solve those problems and build an efficient LNG plant in Ensenada, Mexico. Learn More Escondida Water Supply Project Antofagasta, Chile The amount that can be extracted of one of the world’s most valuable natural resources – copper – is directly dependent upon the availability of fresh water. But in one of the driest places on Earth, you have your work cut out for you. Black & Veatch was chosen as the engineer of record for the marine works and desalination components for the project. Learn More Jordan Cove LNG Liquefaction Export Facility Coos Bay, Oregon, U.S.A. The Jordan Cove LNG Liquefaction Export Facility will help meet rising global demand for clean-burning natural gas. The facility will use Black & Veatch’s patented PRICO LNG technology to produce up to 6 million tons of LNG per year for export. Black & Veatch has completed the front-end engineering and design work and pre-construction planning for the facility. Learn More IOCL Ennore Terminal Tamil Nadu, India IOCL’s Ennore terminal will be the first-of-its-kind on India’s east coast. With a send-out capacity of five million tonnes the regasification terminal paves the way for supply of LNG to aid further industrial growth in the region. Black & Veatch will lead the EPC and commissioning work on a turnkey basis, and the plant is scheduled to be completed by 2018.

Aging infrastructure is primarily to blame, as an estimated 40 percent of U.S. water and wastewater pipes are beyond their life expectancy, notes a recent article in WaterWorld. The article goes on to say that half of forecasted capital expenditures by water providers will cover new installation and rehabilitation of underground infrastructure Predictive Maintenance Offers Promise in Asset Management When it comes to understanding how water utilities approach asset maintenance, survey data shows that, on average, they tend to weight their efforts more heavily toward preventive maintenance. The Stormwater Resilience Roadmap: Integration of Delivery Frameworks and Financial Capacity A structured path to a paradigm shift in stormwater management can be developed by integrating an alternative program planning and execution framework, and by enhancing financial resilience through effective funding mechanisms.
